Top Quality Misdemeanor and Felony Criminal Defense
Our office is prepared to defend our clients against any criminal charges, whether they are misdemeanor or felony offenses. Misdemeanors are less serious crimes in Michigan, but a conviction for a misdemeanor can still have a significant impact on your life. Conviction means a permanent and public criminal record, potential jail time, fines, and other punishments set by the court.
Felony offenses are the most serious crimes a person can be charged with, and a conviction can permanently alter the course of your life. Felony convictions almost always come with years in prison and thousands of dollars in fines and court costs. Your ability to own a firearm, hold public office, and vote are restricted. A conviction for a felony will follow you for the rest of your life.
The Van Den Heuvel Law Office has years of combined experience defending our clients against many different types of misdemeanor and felony charges in Michigan, including but not limited to the following:
- Aggravated crimes
- Domestic violence
- Driving under the influence (DUI)
- Drug charges
- Identity theft
- Indecent exposure
- Insider trading
- Insurance fraud
- Malicious destruction of property
- Money laundering
- Mortgage fraud
- Operating while visibly impaired (OWVI)
- Possession of a controlled substance
- Possession with the intent to distribute
Some of these crimes, such as various drug offenses and driving under the influence, can either be charged as a misdemeanor or felony offenses. Having an experienced criminal defense attorney by your side can help mitigate the charges and provide the best possible arguments for your case.
