When Your Freedom is at Stake, Don’t Settle for Just Any Attorney

If you are implicated in a sex crime in Gaylord, Michigan, you cannot afford to wait until charges are formally filed before you get qualified legal assistance. Because sex crimes are emotionally charged, especially if they involve minors, you cannot afford to make one wrong step. A misunderstood question or a poorly-worded statement may be all it takes to spell the difference between freedom and serving time, especially when overzealous law enforcement and prosecutors are determined to close a case and get a conviction. You need an attorney who will aggressively defend your rights and who will mount a defense that is firmly committed to the age-old American principle that the accused is innocent until proven guilty, no matter what the charge.
