Criminal & Municipal

Edward C. Pedersen, PLLC
No one ever anticipates being charged with a criminal offense or being ticketed by a police officer. People from all walks of life may have contact with either the criminal justice system or the municipal court system at some point in their life. Parents may have contact with the criminal justice system as a result of their child, while others may be charged mistakenly or as a result of a false allegation. Whatever the reason, it is critical during these most difficult times that our clients are represented by experienced lawyers to ensure their rights are protected and that they are treated fairly by the courts.

When charged with a crime or serious motor vehicle offense, our clients often face consequences that can include the loss of their liberty or severe penalties. Additionally, a conviction may affect their driving privileges and employment. Therefore, finding the right attorney is essential. Whether a case is a simple motor vehicle violation or an indictable offense in the state or federal court, we can help you.

We have experience in district, circuit and federal courts throughout Michigan and have handled a wide array of offenses that include, but are not limited to, assaults, burglaries, robberies, narcotics offenses and homicides. Our affiliated attorney's ensures that our clients receive the best representation available. We have an understanding of the criminal justice system to help guide our clients through the system while diligently ensuring that their rights are protected and that they are treated fairly by the courts.

We also pursue expungement petitions to remove and purge a client’s prior contact with the criminal justice system. It has been estimated that as many as one in every seven Americans have had some type of contact with the criminal justice system. In these volatile and uncertain times, there exists a heightened awareness and scrutiny in corporate America which may affect a client’s employment, livelihood and career potential even after their criminal case has concluded. Clients can obtain assistance in petitioning the courts to erase a criminal conviction or disposition so they may shed the negative stigma associated with that incident and not be continuously affected for having made a mistake or engaged in an indiscretion.

When a client is charged with a criminal offense or serious motor vehicle offense that could impinge upon their life or liberty, they need to feel confident and secure that they are getting the best legal representation possible.
