Defending People Against Federal Criminal Charges In Michigan

When you face federal criminal charges, you need an experienced attorney who understands the complex realities of the charges, and how to best fight against them. Federal criminal charges are much more serious than state criminal charges — the penalties are more serious, the court rules and regulations are more stringent, and federal prosecutors and judges are much less likely to cut a defendant a break. That's why you need the best legal defense possible — from an attorney with serious federal experience — when you are facing federal criminal charges.

At G. M. Gabry Law, our lead criminal defense attorney, Gary Michael Gabry, is a former prosecutor who has over 35 years of experience prosecuting and defending state and federal crimes throughout Michigan, including Kalamazoo and Portage. This insight gives him the unique ability to "think like the other side," with the goal of putting together the strongest defense for his clients. Since federal charges carry stiffer penalties than state crimes, this is essential for an effective defense.

A Criminal Lawyer Who Cares

As soon as you know you're facing federal criminal charges, it's essential to find an attorney with the necessary skills and experience to represent your legal interests. An attorney can help shelter you from federal agencies, like the Internal Revenue Service or the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, to reduce the stress of your circumstance. An attorney can also protect your rights and offer sound counsel, while working to respond to the charges and seek the best possible outcome, whether it's a plea deal, trial or getting the charges reduced.

At G. M. Gabry Law, we approach each case with care and compassion by getting to know our clients as individuals. We thoroughly investigate every case and use cutting-edge techniques to make sure their rights aren't violated by the system. This technique helps us provide clear, accurate and pragmatic advice that's in the best interest of our clients and designed to secure the best outcome possible.
