Put Our Criminal Law Experience To Work
Over the course of 45 years, Boyer, St. Pierre, & Aull, PLLC’s Macomb County lawyers have defended thousands of clients in Michigan for legal matters including:
Regain Your Property Against Forfeiture
Michigan law enforcement officials are empowered to seize assets such as bank accounts, vehicles, residences or other properties before you have been convicted of a crime. Those charged with distribution of illegal drugs or gambling are especially susceptible to forfeiture in Michigan. The attorneys at Boyer, St. Pierre, & Aull, PLLC, can help you defend your property from forfeiture or fight to get your property restored to you if it has already been seized.
Know Your Rights
Our criminal defense attorneys strongly believe that you deserve a skillful and spirited advocate to make sure that your side of the case is presented effectively from the time you are arrested to the final resolution of your case. We are experienced trial lawyers dedicated to protecting the rights of our neighbors who stand accused of committing crimes. The first thing clients are told is this: Exercise your right to remain silent. Never confess to a crime, and further, never submit to questioning by police without your criminal defense lawyer at your side.
Our firm’s criminal defense lawyers understand that being charged with a crime is traumatic and humiliating. The possible consequences may affect your employment, licensing, finances and reputation. Our approach is to treat our clients with compassion, to fight aggressively for clients’ rights, and to do so at a reasonable fee.
How We Defend You Against Charges
Your representation begins with a confidential meeting to find out exactly what happened from your point of view as well as that of the police. An experienced criminal attorney explains the law to you and informs you of your legal options. The preferred goal is to get your case dismissed or to have you acquitted. If this is not possible, then your criminal defense lawyer uses all available legal means to minimize the consequences for you. When a plea agreement would best serve you, we evaluate the full impact — including sentencing options and effects on your record — and advise you accordingly. The final decision is yours; when it is in your best interest, our lawyers are fully prepared to take your case to trial and fight for you in court.
