Do you need an experienced criminal defense attorney? At the Law Officesof John O. Knappman, we have 25 years of experience and the awards and recognition that go with it. With a background as an Assistant Prosecutor, we can defend you. With these high stakes, don't stand in court without the best criminal attorney next to you. Now you've found them.
We know the judges and the law, but, more importantly, the judges know us. Our reputation matters just as much as yours. You should be represented by an experienced criminal lawyer Who works currently works regularly in your geographical court system.
We have DUI, DWI, OWI, drunk driving defense as a significant part of our practice, but we can also be your misdemeanor attorney. Speeding ticket? Usually we can help you avoid points and may get the ticket reduced (but nothing is guaranteed).
Some quick advice? The police mean it when they tell you anything you say can be held against you. A good criminal lawyer will tell you that. We always add: You cannot do your own plea bargaining as good as an experienced criminal defense attorney representing you. Once you speak out, it can never be taken back. Let your attorney speak on your behalf.
Our practice includes traffic offenses, felonies, misdemeanors, and drunk driving charges. We handle felony cases in Recorder's Court (Detroit). We also can help you in Monroe County. (Call us regarding other surrounding counties as well! -Monroe, Oakland & Macomb.)
If you don't know your rights, then essentially, you do not have any. An attorney that specializes in criminal defense knows your rights. An attorney who has been an assistant prosecuting attorney knows how to present you and represent you for the best possible outcome. Get it right the first time! Appeals are expensive without any gaurantee. Remember, a permanent record can ruin you reputation, job opportunities, leasing a home and more!
