Our attorneys have handled all types of criminal matters in the Emmet County court system. If you are under investigation or charged with a crime, don't let overzealous law enforcement officers and prosecutors convince you not to fight back. Many times in an effort to make an arrest and a name for themselves, law enforcement officials may violate your constitutional rights and fail to follow proper procedures for collecting evidence. Sometimes their mistakes can be your greatest defense, leading to charges being dismissed or reduced.
