Many of these impacts can last far longer than your involvement in a case.

Do not wait until matters escalate before hiring an attorney. Many people readily assume that their rights will be adequately protected by the operation of the legal system, or they trust law enforcement to treat them as “innocent until proven guilty” during the investigative stages of a crime. Unfortunately, in sex crime cases in particular, the emotionally charged aspects of a case can make prosecutors, law enforcement, and the public overeager to pin blame, even where evidence is scant. In cases involving minors, people can also be driven by anger, fear, and retribution, rather than hard facts. Don’t wait until you are in serious straits to find someone to represent your legal interests.
If you are accused or implicated in a sex crime in Alpena, Michigan, or another city within Alpena County, Michigan, do not hesitate to contact the lawyers at Grabel & Associates right away.
