Representing You Inside & Outside the Courtroom

Getting arrested is a frightening and intimidating process for most people, due mainly to fear of the unknown and a feeling of helplessness at the hands of the police, prosecutors, and other aspects of law enforcement and the justice system. It seems like everyone knows what is going on but you. Police and prosecutors foster this impression, so you will rely on them for advice and plead guilty to the offense charged in order to avoid harsh punishment. But you may actually have defenses available to you, and you may not even be guilty of the charges filed against you. With Clarkston Legal on your side, you will have the benefit of former prosecutors and long-time criminal defense attorneys who know as much or more about the law as the police and prosecutors on the other side. We will make sure you understand your situation, know what to expect, and are informed about your options, so you can make smart decisions in your own best interest. Let us start the fight for your freedom.

Dissolving a marriage can be a difficult time because of the emotions involved, and it can be a scary time because of the change involved. We are here for you throughout the process, from before papers are ever filed to long after in the case of post-divorce modifications of custody or support or the need for child custody or spousal support enforcement. We provide practical legal advice in all aspects of a Michigan divorce, including child custody, child support, spousal support (alimony), and the division of marital property. Our Waterford & Clarkston divorce lawyers are especially adept in high-value marital estate division and provide technical assistance and representation in business and professional practice valuations, the division of retirement assets, the division of closely-held businesses, and more. Contact us in Waterford, Michigan, and schedule a free consultation to get started. We also serve the areas of Clarkston, White Lake, Commerce Township, and West Bloomfield.
