She is currently a member of the Oakland County Bar Association, the State Bar of Michigan and the Criminal Defense Attorneys of Michigan (CDAM). She has been

Whether you have been charged with OWI/DUI,
domestic violence or a
drug crime such as
possession, or delivery, you should not take any risks with your freedom. Michigan law can allow judges to impose severe penalties for individuals convicted of crimes, both as punishment and to deter a repeat offense. While sentences differ for
felonies & misdemeanors, whether you go to jail or prison, a criminal conviction may cause problems in the future when you have to pass a background check for employment or housing.
Having a conviction for assault,
child abuse or a
theft crime can seriously limit your opportunities. If you are charged with a
sex crime, you also face the prospect of sex offender registration for the rest of your life. Preventing a guilty verdict is especially important if your child has been arrested for a
juvenile crime or
underage OWI, as it could result in loss of a scholarship or expulsion from school. Our firm can also represent you during any type of
family law case, from divorce and separation to child custody and child support.
