Grand Rapids Criminal Defense Attorney
Whether you are charged with a misdemeanor or a felony, you have rights that must be protected. These rights include the presumption of innocence and the right to an attorney. However, don’t just settle for any attorney — call Simkins Law.
At Simkins Law, Attorney Steven R. Simkins has been fighting for clients’ rights for over ten years. We begin by providing a free consultation wherein we examine the charge, the events leading up to the arrest, what happened before, during and after the arrest, whether the police acted within the law during the performance of their duties, and all other legal issues involved. We then advise our clients as to what we can do to eliminate or mitigate potential consequences, and we develop a plan of action which we implement immediately. Once we enter your case, we obtain every shred of evidence necessary to fight for your rights and challenge the police/prosecution. Simply stated, we will do everything possible to help you win.
Criminal cases fall into two categories: misdemeanors and felonies. A misdemeanor is classified as any case where the maximum punishment can amount to one (1) year or less in the county jail.
