Our firm focuses on the client's journey, and how he/she finds themselves on the wrong side of the law. We lead with empathy and understanding; our clients are not criminals, but rather good hearted, caring folks who respect the law, and want to be held in high regard. We work with a diverse pool of clients; our clients are our partners, and together we put forth a proactive approach to every case.
While I am a former NYC and Michigan prosecutor, and have been practicing criminal defense for more than a decade, I don't like using the "criminal" label with my clients. My clients don't have anything to hide; they are more frightened and embarrassed, and worried about an uncertain future. They are concerned that they made a terrible "first impression" with the police, prosecutor, judge, and court system; it can be gut wrenching to feel "stuck"; you can't change what happened, and sitting around, and worrying only makes things worse.
My goal is to empower each client to make a "true impression" and understand and demonstrate how they ended up on the wrong side of the law, and provide them the tools to SHOW rather than TELL what they can learn from their incident, and where they are going in the future. Nothing feels better as an attorney than to hear a prosecutor and judge praise my client for stepping up, and taking control of their own situation.
I view my role as both an attorney and a coach for my client. Coaching is the art of facilitating another person's learning, development, well-being and performance, which as an attorney is my client. Coaching raises self-awareness and identifies choices. Through coaching, my clients are able to find their own solutions, develop their own skills, and change their own attitudes and behaviors while tackling a challenging moment in life. The whole aim of coaching is to close the gap between people's potential and their current state, and help clients use their cases as moments of reflection and growth.
My clients do amazing in the criminal justice system, because they are mere visitors; having the right exit strategy is the key to navigating the most challenging moment in your life. You only get to handle your case once, how do you want to approach it?

Committing the crime of Retail Fraud can have serious implications for a client's career and future prospects. Professionals such as nurses, lawyers, and doctors may risk losing their licenses to practice, while teachers could face termination due to a theft offense on their record. Stay-at-home parents planning to reenter the job market after a five-year hiatus suddenly find themselves burdened with a criminal record, adding to the challenge of explaining a significant gap in their resume. Graduating students or those applying for graduate school are faced with the daunting task of disclosing a criminal record when asked on applications.
Having worked extensively with clients in similar situations, I have gained valuable experience and continuously refine my program. It's important to note that I am highly selective in choosing clients, as my program requires dedication. Most clients who approach us and review our requirements are motivated to change the narrative surrounding their cases and willingly agree to the terms and conditions.
When charged with Retail Fraud in Michigan, the police, prosecutor, judge, and the community at large often perceive individuals as thieves, labeling them as dishonest individuals who made selfish choices. Many companies won't even consider job applications from individuals convicted of theft and dishonesty crimes, as trust becomes a major concern.
Our program empowers clients to take control of their situation and prevent it from spiraling out of control. By demonstrating that the charged crime does not define their true character, clients can avoid being labeled as criminals forever. We aim to keep this offense off their records through either a reduction or dismissal of charges. After discussing the individual case and the client's position in life, we develop a comprehensive approach tailored to achieve the desired outcome. I look forward to discussing your unique case, setting achievable goals, and working together to attain them.
To discuss your case, please call me at 248-924-9458 or email me. I am available 24/7, although I may occasionally be in court or with my family, so there might be a slight delay in my response. However, I will do my best to get back to you within the specified time frame.
