Society will have you believe that lawyers are sharks and will try to trick you at every corner if you aren't careful. Mr. Haff defied every stereo type possible. He was kind and understanding and was willing to work with me--something I did not find in the nine other lawyers I contacted. I was hesitant to obtain legal council because I thought I could not afford it, and wasn't sure there was anything a lawyer could do for me. If you are on the fence about hiring or obtaining a lawyer, then you really do need one. Having a lawyer means you aren't fighting for yourself on your own. It means there is someone who will be sitting next to you at court, and someone who you can ask all of the middle of the night questions that pop into your head. Family is great. But there is no substitute for someone who has gone to law school and knows the ins and outs of the system and can tell you what to expect. If you are in the Grand Rapids area and have been charged with a crime, you need a criminal defense attorney, and I highly recommend you consult with Mr. Haff before hiring anyone else. With Mr. Haff you will get an experienced, down to earth man, who will look out for your best interest. He is very professional, but personable, and isn't someone who will show up to court with sucker in his mouth. Mr. Haff has assisted me at every stop in the road, and hasn't stopped looking out for me. Like you are, I read all of these reviews before calling Mr. Haff. I wasn't sure that I would have the same great experience that others had, and to be honest I thought they were inflated, but please listen to me when I say, every word of this is true. Do yourself a favor and call or email him. You don't have anything to loose by doing so, but you might have a lot to gain. I wish you all the luck on whatever your situation is and hope this has helped you.

My husband was in an altercation and charged with a felony assault. Mr. McInerney responded to our listing on Thumbtack with a very fair fee. Of the 3 offers I received, I chose him because he had a very professional website, and also a lot of years of experience. He met up with me very quickly and has proven to always be prompt and helpful with concerns we call with, meeting with us to go over gameplan, keeping us up-to-date as any information relative to the case changes, and advising and representing us at all the numerous court appearances. There were times during the months we were dealing with court issues and dates and judges and prosecuting attorneys that our situation seemed insanely dire and maybe even hopeless. Our main goal was to avoid jail time. Mr. McInerney very much helped make that happen for us. I am so glad I used this website and chose this lawyer. Thank you, Mr. McInerney.

Mr Carter was assigned to me as a court appointed attorney years ago... I haven't stopped using him since. He is always quick to return a call and he is willing to meet you at your home if need be. His style of questioning to get details also prepares you for what might come up in a trial. If your looking for someone who isn't afraid to fight for your rights even if it's a case most would look at because it may involve law enforcement, Schools or big time company's then he definitely is the on you need!!!
