Detroit Lawyers Defending Felony and Misdemeanor Criminal Charges

The Motor City is home to over 700,000 people, and is the largest city in Michigan. According to Forbes Magazine, the Detroit-Livonia-Dearborn metropolitan area is the most dangerous place in America, and the city has some of the country’s highest crime rates. Over 90 crimes per 1,000 residents occur annually, creating a dangerous reputation of delinquency for the area. Prosecutors will try to put anyone accused of a crime behind bars in efforts to lower the crime rate, but run the risk of convicting many innocent people and unnecessarily filling Michigan jails.
