Providing Aggressive Criminal Defense

Too many people think that if they have been charged with a crime — particularly if it's drunk driving — they have no options. That is simply not true. The prosecutor's office may not have the evidence to back up their claims-and a thorough, prepared defense attorney can make that clear to a judge or jury. A case may be made for reduced charges or alternative sentencing options.

It is essential to talk to an attorney as soon as possible after you have been charged-especially with a Michigan drunk driving charge. You face the possible loss of your driver's license.

When you contact Gormley and Johnson, we will take the time to understand your situation. We will explain the legal process and the laws that affect your particular case, and we will guide you through the process so you always know what to expect and what your options may be. You are a part of the legal defense team, and you will always be fully informed.

Put Knowledge And Experience To Work In Your Defense

Defense attorney Christopher Johnson is an aggressive trial attorney with extensive experience handling both criminal prosecution and defense. He has worked extensively in the county courts handling other areas, including abuse and neglect cases, parental rights termination, juvenile delinquency, and juvenile-to-adult waivers. He can also advise you about pursuing an expungement of your criminal record.

Juvenile Criminal Cases

Many people think a juvenile criminal record is not serious, so they trust their young person's defense to an inexperienced attorney. A juvenile record does not just go away. It can have lifelong consequences in terms of education and employment, and an inappropriate juvenile sentence can make the situation worse, rather than better.
