When you or a loved one is facing potential jail time, expensive fines, probation, and other severe penalties, it can be stressful and frightening.

Our experienced Michigan criminal defense lawyers conduct independent investigations to determine the facts surrounding the charges.

Each attorney at The Clark Law Firm works diligently to prevent your arrest and protect your reputation during the criminal investigation. If an arrest is imminent, our team will work to mitigate the charges and damage to your reputation. Our goal is to have the charges against you dismissed.
However, if a dismissal is not possible, our attorneys explore every defense option to determine the best course of action to lessen the consequences of a conviction. Options we explore as part of a defense strategy include plea bargains and trials. Our attorneys do not hesitate to take a case to trial if that is in the best interest of a client.
Being charged with a crime is a serious matter, and it should not be taken lightly no matter how “minor” the offense may appear.
