Four decades of criminal law experience benefits clients
Over the course of 45 years, Boyer Dawson & St. Pierre’s Macomb County lawyers have defended thousands of clients in Michigan for legal matters including:
Fighting against forfeiture to regain your property
Michigan law enforcement officials are empowered to seize assets such as bank accounts, vehicles, residences, or other properties before you have been convicted of a crime. Those charged with distribution of illegal drugs or gambling are especially susceptible to forfeiture in Michigan. The attorneys at Boyer Dawson & St. Pierre can help you defend your property from forfeiture or fight to get your property restored to you if it has already been seized.
Criminal defense lawyers protect your rights—Never confess!
Our criminal defense attorneys strongly believe that you deserve a skillful and spirited advocate to make sure that your side of the case is presented effectively from the time you are arrested to the final resolution of your case. We are experienced trial lawyers dedicated to protecting the rights of our neighbors who stand accused of committing crimes. The first thing clients are told is this: Exercise your right to remain silent. Never confess to a crime and further, never submit to questioning by police without your criminal defense lawyer at your side.
The firm’s criminal defense lawyers understand that being charged with a crime is traumatic and humiliating. The possible consequences may affect your employment, licensing, finances, and reputation. Our approach is to treat our clients with compassion, to fight aggressively for clients’ rights, and to do so at a reasonable fee.
The criminal defense process
Your representation begins with a confidential meeting to find out exactly what happened from your point of view as well as that of the police. An experienced criminal attorney explains the law to you and informs you of your legal options. The preferred goal is to get your case dismissed or to have you acquitted. If this is not possible, then your criminal defense lawyer uses all available legal means to minimize the consequences for you. When a plea agreement would best serve you, we evaluate the full impact—including sentencing options and effect on your record—and advise you accordingly. The final decision is yours, when it is in your best interest our lawyers are fully prepared to take your case to trial and fight for you in court.
