The attorneys at Springstead Bartish Borgula & Lynchfocus almost exclusively on criminal law/defense. Why? We believe it gives our attorneys and our clients an advantage in defending criminal charges in state court and federal court. After all, most prosecutors practice in only one area of the law: criminal law. In order to level the playing field, our attorneys focus almost exclusively on criminal defense. The depth of knowledge and experience that comes from focusing on criminal defense day-in-and-day-out makes us better at what we do. It allows us the time and the experience to master all the various aspects of a criminal case in order to get better result for our clients.
This includes mastering: the pre-charge investigation; grand jury investigations; pre-charge plea bargaining (before the prosecution becomes entrenched in the case); cooperation; arraignment; bond/detention hearings; discovery; effective plea negotiations (including knowing a good deal from a bad deal); filing pre-trial motions (with an aim toward winning the case or excluding critical evidence from trial); jury selection; the rules of evidence; jury trials; cross-examination; post-trial motions for acquittal or new trial; pre-sentence interviews PSI's), pre-sentence investigation reports (PSR's); the sentencing guidelines; motions for downward departures/variances; sentencing; deferred sentences; deferred plea agreements; alternatives to traditional incarceration; and making persuasive written and oral arguments on appeal. Mastering these areas of practice is critical if you want to be regarded as one of the best criminal defense attorneys/best criminal defense firms in West Michigan. If we didn't focus our practice on criminal defense, it would be difficult to master all the different aspects of a criminal case, any one of which could make a tremendous difference in our clients' cases.
