Grabel & Associates is one of the very few law firms in the state of Michigan that only practices criminal defense law. Our lawyers are able to provide you with aggressive and exceptional legal representation.
Since 1999, we have been one of Michigan’s premier criminal defense law firms, comprising a legal team with more than 100 years of combined trial law and defense experience.
Our time and resources are devoted exclusively to building a strong legal defense for all our clients winning is our only goal. With attorneys statewide, we aggressively defend the accused from all walks of life against any criminal charges from felonies and misdemeanors to juvenile crimes.
As a private criminal defense law firm, we have the experience, time, and resources needed to give you the attention you deserve. Overworked public defenders may care about their jobs, but they juggle as many as 100-200 cases at a time and simply don’t have access to the resources we have.
Contrary to what many people think, public defenders are not always free, must be applied for, and must be appointed by the court a process that can waste valuable time that could be spent on building a strong legal defense. And, in many instances, public defenders do not even see a case file until the day before the case goes to court. For this reason alone, you may be encouraged to accept a plea bargain that is not in your best interest just to get your case through the system faster.
Unlike police and prosecutors, we are not seeking to charge, convict, or punish you and, therefore, are very interested in hearing your side of the story. We listen without judgment and only care about seeing you get the best possible outcome. By listening to you and thoroughly investigating your case we may be able to learn things about your case the police chose to ignore things that could help us get charges against you dropped, or that can work to your advantage in a plea agreement.
As defense attorneys, we fight to uphold state and Constitutional rights of all those accused of a crime, regardless of guilt or innocence.
Police sometimes fail to follow through on leads that could prove your innocence or that would work to your advantage by showing extenuating circumstances or other suspects.
We will thoroughly investigate your case and attempt to uncover evidence and facts that support a more favorable outcome for you. And, if the police obtained evidence against you illegally, we aggressively work to have it thrown out of the case completely.
Prosecutors often forget that you have a right to a fair trial and will seek to suppress any evidence and testimony that could cast a doubt about your guilt to increase their chances of getting a conviction.
We do the opposite. We work to uncover all evidence in your favor and work hard to see that it is brought to light at trial. And, if you are innocent, we fight back hard against prosecutors who have already assumed you are guilty.
You can avoid being bullied by police and pressured by prosecutors by contacting us for immediate help. We offer 24/7, free emergency consultations and we visit jails.
If you have already been arrested or charged with a crime, you deserve the best legal defense possible. We understand that your life is on the line and that spending time in jail can cost you your job, home, and self-respect, and can disrupt family relationships. We will work aggressively to achieve the best possible outcome for you and for the sake of your loved ones.
We know the law and are not afraid to stand up to police and prosecutors on your behalf. Contact us for a free initial phone consultation with a professional case analyst and you will have taken the first and most important step toward getting the quality legal help you deserve.
