Facing Criminal Charges in the Upper Peninsula?
Lawyer U.P. is Here to Help

Marquette Criminal Lawyer

All criminal accusations can come with harsh consequences. Even misdemeanors such as theft, retail fraud, simple assault, or trespassing will result in the creation of a criminal record upon conviction. You may even be subject to time in jail.

Anyone facing criminal charges could benefit from working with an attorney in Marquette. The goal of a lawyer is to minimize the impact of these charges upon a person’s life. This can include working towards a reasonable plea deal, challenging the admissibility of evidence in court, and finding weaknesses in the prosecution’s case.

Our clients are not treated like just another client added to the roster; instead, we work to create an individualized plan for each client that fits their needs and desires while also ensuring all clients’ thoughts and feelings are taken into consideration.

Building a Defense

When you learn that you are the target of a criminal investigation or have been arrested for allegations of violating a law, you need to act quickly to protect yourself. Even seemingly minor cases have the potential to change your life with the creation of a criminal record, the payment of heavy fines, the imposition of restraining orders, or time spent in prison.

With the help of a Marquette criminal lawyer, you could fight your charges. A legal professional could work with you to explain the laws that apply to your case and what the prosecutor needs to prove to secure a conviction. They could also evaluate the legality of the police work that led to your arrest and argue to defend your rights in court. If the case goes to trial, an attorney could present an argument to help to create reasonable doubt.

Practice Areas

Once an individual learns that police have taken an interest in their activities, they need to act aggressively to protect themselves. Hiring an attorney to handle the criminal case is often a powerful first step, even before arrest or charges being filed. A lawyer could work with the police and the prosecutor’s office to present evidence that could help to prevent an arrest from taking place.

If an arrest has already occurred, a legal professional could help to prevent any unfair interrogations or dispute the outcome of a lineup identification. Every person has the right to an attorney during these proceedings, and law enforcement must wait once an individual invokes this right.

Attorneys also play a critical role in court. This includes entering a formal plea during an arraignment and arguing for fair bail. The arraignment is also an opportunity to contest the imposition of a restraining order. Having an attorney on one’s side during pretrial court sessions could also help to contest the legality of evidence and address other potential violations of one’s rights. Finally, a lawyer could take the lead during a trial to cross-examine witnesses and present evidence that aims to create reasonable doubt in the minds of jurors.
