• A Good Investment

Schmierlaw is an experienced and aggressive Civil Infraction and traffic Ticket Attorney who may be able to reduce the fines, the driving points you may get or Schmierlaw may even be able to convince the Prosecutor to dismiss a Misdemeanor criminal charge and recharge you as a Civil Infraction, meaning a criminal conviction will not appear on your record.

• Appears on Record

• Up to a Year in Jail

• Employment Issues

• Effect on Credit Score

• Offenses like OWI

• Public Intox, Shoplifting

While misdemeanors have less long-term consequences than felonies, career prospects, credit score, and employment opportunities could be affected. An Attorney may be able to get the Prosecutor and Judge to sentence you under a Diversion Program that could keep your record clean.

Felonies carry significant consequences whether you go to jail or not. And Michigan has an ”Habitual Offender” law, that could result in being sentenced for up to life in prison. There are Diversion Programs that may keep a felony conviction off your record. An experienced Attorney can help. Call Schmierlaw for a no-cost initial consultation to discuss your case.

You Don't Want to Say "What Happened?" when It's Over

Some criminal defense lawyers will tell you only good things in order to get your business. The attorney promised you that you would “Beat the Rap” but then you find yourself convicted of a felony, facing 5 years in jail, and trying to figure out what happened?

Schmierlaw has nearly two decades of criminal defense experience and because of that, we know how your case may proceed and the possible penalties you could face. We won’t make promises we can't keep just to get your business. We will advise you on what can truly happen if you are convicted and advise you on steps to take to reduce the impact a criminal conviction will have on your life. We will tell you when we think it is in your best interest to take a plea deal or when you should battle the criminal charges in court. But always, however you want to proceed, Schmierlaw, is committed to giving you experienced and aggressive criminal defense.

So, if You are Charged with a Misdemeanor or Felony, Call Criminal Defense Attorney Schmierlaw. We are Committed to Providing You the Best Possible Criminal Defense
