The Sex Crimes Defense Team at Grabel & Associates Are Your Strongest Allies
If you find yourself being questioned in a criminal investigation, you may not realize that the police may regard you as a suspect until it is too late. In fact, in cases initiated by a simple verbal allegation, the police often gain headway by making suspects believe that they are on their side, in order to get suspects to reveal information that might substantiate the allegations. It is important to remember that, when it comes to criminal investigations, the police are not there to make friends with you or even to take sides. They have no choice but to treat every allegation of criminal conduct seriously, and are only interested in getting the evidence they need as easily as they can to bring a case to a close and to help the prosecution to obtain a conviction.

We have successfully defended hundreds of clients throughout Michigan from criminal charges, and, because we understand what our clients are going through, we can provide them with the right legal help.
