Larceny With a Weapon in Ann Arbor, Washtenaw County, and Throughout Michigan
Any robbery and theft charge should be taken seriously, but those also involving weapons charges are even more serious. Working with an attorney who understands what it takes to protect against felony conviction could be the difference between life in prison and a more favorable case outcome. With so much at stake, it is crucial that you begin working with a qualified defense attorney as soon as possible, giving yourself ample time to fight back against false accusations and excessively harsh punishment.
There are two critically important things you need to do if you are facing theft or robbery accusations. The first is obviously getting in touch with an attorney as soon as possible, so that you are aware of your rights and how to effectively utilize them throughout your legal battle. The second is to not speak to police at all until you have an attorney present. Anything you say could be used against you, and police and prosecutors will only be interested in what can help their cause, not anything you have to say that could prove your innocence. Our lawyers can advise you on what to say throughout investigation and trial, and we have guided countless past clients to favorable case results. Let our team help you avoid the penalties you could be facing after an Ann Arbor robbery allegation.
