    Criminal Defense

      Charged with a crime?

      Being arrested can be scary. If the government chooses to prosecute you, you face the potential of being jailed, losing your privilege to drive, loss of employment or your property and also the possibility of being on probation. At your first court appearance, commonly referred to as the "arraignment," you could have your bond revoked and be taken into custody. Not only can you be deprived of your liberty, but you could also have a criminal conviction on your permanent record. Don't go to court without an experienced and seasoned Michigan criminal defense attorney.

      You're Our Top Priority

      Our first priority is to get your case dismissed. Michael G. Mitchell, Esq. is an experienced and tireless criminal defense attorney who has represented hundreds of clients over the years. Many of whom have been left with no criminal records. Our firm has the necessary experience to handle your legal issue with empathy, personal attention and service.


      Being charged with a crime can cause a chaotic lapse in your life. People have a hard time focusing on their jobs and often times can't sleep. It's normal to automatically think of the worst-case scenario but often times, our clients walk out of our office after a consultation with the peace of mind knowing that the impact will be significantly less than what they had initially thought, or, perhaps a legal defense can be asserted that you never realized was possible that could get your charges dismissed. It's important to go about your life and work as you normally would and let us worry about the government and the judge because that's what we do. We treat every client and case individually with a well thought-out legal strategy. Communication is paramount to the success of the attorney-client relationship and we have always found that an informed client who understands what their facing and the logic and reasoning behind it makes for a happier client.


      Specializing in criminal defense matters allows us to help people overcome some of the most stressful challenges people will face during their lives. At our office we pride ourselves on case preparation and attention to detail because what may seem inconsequential may very well be the reason that your case ought to be dismissed. That's why we always obtain police incident reports, in-car videos, booking-room videos and any audio that will shed light on the facts and circumstances of your case and whether or not the police did what they were supposed to during the course of the investigation. No matter what criminal charges you're facing, contact us to discuss your rights and options.

      Violations of Probation

      If you've violated your probation please contact us to discuss your options. Sometimes violations can be handled without you having to be in court. If that is not the case, having an attorney that has a strong working relationship with the local courts and probation departments makes a huge difference. Call us now.
