​A Successful Trial Attorney for 35 Years


Misdemeanor Lawyer in Grand Rapids, MI

The penalties for being convicted of a misdemeanor in Michigan can affect you personally, professionally, and financially and not just you, but your family as well. Misdemeanor penalties include expensive fines, costs, and fees to both the court and often the Secretary of State; jail time, lengthy probation, community service and/or work crew, the loss of your driver’s license; and often the loss of your job, any future jobs; and a criminal conviction on your criminal record. A misdemeanor conviction will appear on any background check or security clearance, job application, school admission application or military application. A conviction may also prevent you from traveling to Canada or outside the United States, and may affect your seeking custody of, or parenting time with, your children. Multiple convictions will increase the seriousness of the penalties.
