A Detroit Criminal Defense Attorney Who Roots For You
As the son of a blue-collar worker and stay-at-home mom, Gary has always been rooting for the underdog. Gary spent three and a half years working for the police and government in the Office of the Wayne County Prosecuting Attorney in Detroit, Michigan, at the start of his career. After a while, Gary decided to strike out on his own as a criminal defense attorney. After years of experience, he witnessed unfairness in the justice system. Because of this he finally resolved to do something to help people who need it, and positioned himself as a leader in the Criminal Defense field. He helps people fend off unreasonable allegations, and has gained a reputation as a lawyer who won’t bow to the system and who stands up for the common man and woman.
Gary worked very hard to get where he is now. He was sick of sitting by and watching police and judges ignore and abuse the very laws they are sworn to protect. Ever since, Gary has been fighting against prosecutors and who overcharge criminal defendants in the hopes of a plea bargain at a later date.

Chemical Test Refusal: Michigan is home to some of the strictest DUI laws in the country. Because Michigan is an implied consent state, the act of driving a vehicle means you agree to submit to chemical tests to determine levels of alcohol or drug content in your blood. This subjects those who refuse chemical tests to fines, penalties, and possibly jail time.
Illegal Transport: Illegal transport includes charges for transporting opened or uncapped alcohol containers. It can also extend to transporting medical marijuana improperly. If you want to prevent penalties that are higher than expected, it’s best to have an attorney fighting for you.
Marijuana Possession: Michigan’s marijuana laws are strict. Fines can reach up to $2000, and prison time can reach two to three months. But penalties can be even more severe. Depending on the circumstances of your possession charge, you may be at risk of distribution or DUI charges as well.
Traffic Tickets: Instead of paying a traffic ticket and accepting points on your license, it’s possible to use the law to your advantage and fight the ticket successfully.
