Our attorneys in Comstock Park are ready to aggressively defend your rights! Right now, it doesn’t matter whether or not you did it, what matters is what you do next. We also understand that good people sometimes get falsely accused of a crime they didn’t commit.
If you are facing misdemeanor or felony charge in Comstock Park, you will first have to appear at the 63rd district court in Kent County, Michigan. The first court date you will have is called an arraignment. At the arraignment, you will enter a plea of guilty or not guilty. Attorney Shawn James Haff and The Criminal Defense Law Center of West Michigan always encourage people to enter a not guilty plea at their first date. This will give you the time needed to hire a great attorney and make sure your rights are protected. You are only hurting yourself a lot of the time by just showing up and pleading guilty to be done with the case.
The prosecutors are a high trained team of professionals who are obsessed with getting convictions. If you don’t have a skilled profession on your side, you will be at a severe disadvantage! You should not face these kinds of professionals alone with your liberty and career could be on the line!
An experienced criminal defense attorney in Comstock Park, Shawn has the experience defending clients against all types of criminal charges. I understand that many times you were simply at the wrong place at the wrong time and I will use that to your advantage!
