Kalamazoo County Criminal Defense

Kalamazoo Michigan Criminal Defense Lawyer - DUI and Drug Charges

A failed field sobriety test does not have to result in a conviction. Just because police confiscated drugs from your home or car does not mean they will be capable of using that evidence against you. When an alleged "witness" comes forward with information, it does not necessarily mean your case is slam-dunk. With the right criminal defense team in your corner, it is possible to challenge even the most convincing evidence. The Kalamazoo criminal defense lawyers at Grabel & Associates have the experience, resources, and determination to fight for your rights and freedom.
