During a late night run to Quality Dairy I was stopped by a State Trooper for "Improperly displayed registration", i.e.: tinted license plate cover. The normal documentation was asked for, which I provided along with my CPL and I informed the trooper that I had two firearms in the vehicle. As the trooper was back at his vehicle running my information, two Ingham County Sheriff Deputy vehicles pulled up blocking my vehicle in from the front. The trooper came back to my window with both sheriff deputies and informed me that my CPL was expired, because of a PPO, and that the PPO prohibited me from firearms. Which I acknowledged having the PPO but that it in fact did not prohibit me from buying, selling, purchasing, owning, or transporting firearms; that it was clearly signed by the judge not prohibiting me at a all. Regardless of what the certified PPO signed by a judge stated, the trooper arrested me and took me to jail. I was charged with 2x Carrying Concealed Firearms both with a term (5)years. While being retired law enforcement myself, I was confident that I had not broken the law, that I in fact had followed the law, and additionally that the agencies involved had made several mistakes along the way. Regardless of the situation, or your prior history if you are facing felony charges and are going before a judge, you need an attorney who is informed, educated, well versed in the courtroom, and professional, but also personable. When I first met Mr. Ron Berry he quickly filled all those requirements, he listened intently, asked the right questions, gave feedback, and asked me to assist when he needed me. Mr Berry assured me that I was in fact within my rights, that I was not guilty, and that he believed in me. We appeared in court and Mr. Berry went to work, within approx., (15)minutes the case was dismissed. While this felt like a victory it was short lived. Within a month a warrant was issued for my arrest for the same two charges. I turned my self in, bonded out, went back to court with Mr. Berry to resolve this once and for all. While the prosecuting attorney offered a plea bargain of lesser charges, that would have been a good deal for someone that was guilty, I chose to plead not guilty and go back before a judge. After returning to the courtroom, Mr Berry again went to work, presenting the truthfull factual events, the certified legal documentation, and my belief that he was the man to get this set right. Which is exactly what he did, my case was dismissed with prejudice and I was free of these charges once and for all. Mr. Ron Berry is truly a good man, that is doing exactly what he is meant to do; I am grateful to have met him, thankful for the services he provided; and additionally my family was blessed to have such a good person stand by our side and fight for us. Thank you Mr. Ron Berry, my family is truly grateful

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.

Before Amanda took us on our case was at a complete standstill. She went above and beyond to get results for us and I would highly recommend her to anyone in need of a Lawyer. She saved us thousands of dollars that we would have spent waiting on people who would not call us back. She is very thorough and gets the job done.

I highly recommend Timothy M. Williams for providing Legal Services. Mr Williams is experienced, knowledgeable, well respected by the judges he works with, and reasonable. He takes the time to obtain an in depth knowledge of the matter requiring his representation. His communication style is open and honest, yet sensitive to the circumstances involved. His recommendations are balanced and practical. He is very prompt in replying to voice mail. In my opinion, Timothy Williams goes the extra mile to provide his clients with the best legal representation he possibly can.

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!!!

Best Attorney in Michigan -- DUI / Criminal Defense The stakes were very high. I was charged with OUI/DUI and refusal to submit to Chemical Tests. Loss of my driving privileges and an alcohol related conviction could put my professional license (don't want to be overly specific) in jeopardy as well as impact my employability. Mike and his team were rock stars. The refusal to submit to chemical tests brings a MANDATORY 12 month suspension of driving privileges. This wouldn't even allow me to drive for work. Mike prevailed in getting this charge dismissed. The DUI comes with 6 points, big fines, and a life-long scar on my driving record along with insurance ramifications. Mike was successful in getting the blood evidence suppressed, which ultimately resulted in the charges being dropped. I never regretted hiring Mike and his team from day 1. They are professionals at each step. He knows the process better than the police, understands how the blood and breath test machines work, where the vulnerabilities are, and what steps the peace officers must take to ensure they meet their burden of proof. Communication was very good throughout the process. He is available by email, phone, text, even cell and the Nichols team works around the clock. Mike Nichols is worth every penny and more. I won't ever need his DUI services again because I have learned a very valuable lesson (despite having all charges dropped completely), but I certainly can throw my full support behind him for others that are facing this difficult situation. Hire Mike and he will give you the best possible outcome given your circumstances. Thanks again Mike!

About

In consulting with clients, I seek to fully understand what has brought them to my office, what the client would like to occur, and how I can resolve their legal issue to the client's satisfaction, even if that does not always mean the original solution to a potential problem that the client may have initially had in mind. I work very hard to understand my client's state of mind and my client's ultimate goals. In keeping an open line of communication with my clients, I always attempt to gauge a client's level of satisfaction in my work and what I can possibly do to make my client even more satisfied. I work very hard for all of my clients, and in the end, I think that is what makes my work stand out from others in my field.
