Criminal Defense Attorneys
Van Buren County, Michigan

The Criminal Defense Law Center of West Michigan is here to aggressively defend your rights! Our criminal defense attorneys understand that good people make mistakes! We also understand that good people sometimes get falsely accused of a crime they didn’t commit.

When you are facing criminal charges or being investigated for committing a crime in Van Buren, you need experienced, aggressive and skillful representation. Attorney Shawn Haff is a five star rated lawyer who gets results! I and my lawyers have represented clients all throughout West Michigan. Clients love Shawn and his team because they get great results and provide personalized representation. 

We see people charged with drunk driving, criminal sexual conduct, retail fraud and domestic violence in this county. The prosecutor’s office is skillful and talented. Do not face that team, which does not have your best interest in mind, without having a lawyer like Shawn by your side. 

If your case is taken to trial, we will fight and challenge the prosecutor’s case at every step. You can rest assured that we will not let you get pushed around by an overly zealous prosecutor. 

In what might be a surprise to some people, this county a few years back averaged more drunk driving arrests that most counties in Michigan. While these charges might be common, you can’t take any drunk driving charge like it isn’t serious.
