Defending Our Clients in Hastings
The Van Den Heuvel Law Office has been practicing since 1992 and has experience defending our clients in misdemeanor and felony criminal cases. Misdemeanors are considered less serious crimes, but a conviction can still come with thousands of dollars in fines and court costs, up to one year in jail, and a permanent criminal record. We have defended against misdemeanor charges that include the following:
- Domestic violence
- Driving under the influence (DUI)
- Indecent exposure
- Malicious destruction of property
- Misdemeanor larceny
- Possession of marijuana, and more.
Our office also has experience protecting our clients from accusations of felony misconduct. Felonies are the more serious criminal offenses, where a conviction can mean years in prison, thousands of dollars in fines, stripping of your right to possess firearms, vote, hold public office, and more. Some of the felony crimes we have defended clients against include:
- Possession of a controlled substance
- Possession with intent to distribute
Our office also specializes in defending clients accused of white-collar offenses, which can be both misdemeanors and felony crimes. White-collar crimes include offenses such as bribery, embezzlement, forgery, identity theft, insider trading, insurance fraud, money laundering, and mortgage fraud.
Creating the Best Possible Defense for Your Case
If you believe that the police suspect you committed a crime, have been asked to come in for questioning, or have been arrested and charged with a crime, it is critical that you have an experienced Michigan criminal defense attorney by your side throughout the process. Our professional lawyers will protect your rights and defend you while speaking with police and prosecutors. We will review the evidence and search for any holes or mistakes in the case. Depending on the strength of the evidence, we may be able to get the criminal charges reduced or dismissed outright, and if we cannot, then we will build the strongest possible case for trial.
