Committed to Getting the Results You Need

If you are convicted of even just a misdemeanor offense in Michigan, you can face revoked driving privileges, hundreds of dollars in fines, and even significant jail time. Also, a conviction will give you a criminal record which makes it more difficult for you to apply for certain loans, find housing, and even get a job. Rights First Law keeps all of your best interests in mind when fighting on your behalf. As your representative, we will work hard to minimize the negative effects a conviction can have on your life. We are a boutique law firm and are able to provide our clients with an unparalleled level of personalized advocacy. When you hire us, you gain direct access to our skilled lawyer. Other, larger law firms are frequently forced to pass off clients to inexperienced attorneys or even paralegals. You can trust Rights First Law for the high-quality representation you need.
