Drug Possession

Drug-related crimes have become one of the most widely prosecuted crimes in the state of Michigan, which have a wide range of possible consequences. A conviction for a drug crime in the state of Michigan can include prison or jail time, probation, community service, and heavy fines and court costs. On the federal level, the penalties for some drug crimes have mandatory minimums as high as 10 years of prison time.  It is possible to avoid such harsh consequences if you contact a defense attorney with years of experience with drug crimes on both the state and federal level.

Firearms & Weapons

Firearm and gun rights remains a hot-button issue to this very day. The state of Michigan has a serious stance on weapons charges, and if you’re charged with this crime, the consequences could be severe. Carrying a concealed weapon in Michigan without the proper permits is a felony, and it could result in up to five years prison time and fines.

Kirsch Leach + Associates attorneys are experienced in the laws surrounding constitutional rights to weapons and firearms.

Theft

The state of Michigan may classify theft, or larceny, as a misdemeanor or felony, depending on the amount or value of property or materials in question.
