Criminal Defense

Are you facing criminal charges in Michigan? And are you unsure of how to protect your legal rights? Our top Michigan criminal defense attorneys can help. (877) 737-8800 - CALL NOW. Free Consultation.

Dealing with a Michigan criminal defense law matter can be tremendously stressful, worrying and unsettling. Whether to hire a defense attorney can be one of the most important decisions that you will ever have to make. Allowing the experience of a seasoned attorney to stand by your side and fight for your rights at all cost is the most important make or break aspect of your unique case, and it is a challenge that the Lawyers of Goldman & Associates are more than ready to handle with respect and pride. With over 30 years of experience successfully handling defense legal matters, our law office has the ability to aggressively defend you or your loved one in any type of defense proceeding, including: Criminal Defense Drunk Driving, OWI and DWI Domestic Violence and Assault Retail Fraud Theft Charges Larceny Burglary White Collar Crimes Probation Violations Felony Charges If you or someone you love has been charged with a crime in Michigan, it is imperative that you contact an experienced criminal defense attorney today. The simple fact that one's freedom and liberty may be taken away, or that one's criminal record may be stained forever as a result of past transgressions are reason enough to justify hiring an attorney. But there are other considerations also. How will a criminal prosecution affect your reputation? Your job? Your ability to see your family members or friends? You cannot afford to make a mistake when it comes to criminal charges; the potential impact a conviction could have on your life is too great. You Can't Rely on Court-Appointed Lawyers The reason that you should avoid a court-appointed attorney is not necessarily because court-appointed attorneys are incompetent. The truth is that court-appointed attorneys lack the time and resources to provide the best defense possible to their clients. For these reasons, court-appointed attorneys are in the business of making deals even if those deals are not necessarily in the best interests of their clients. It is true that often times a plea arrangement makes sense for a criminal defendant, but if you were entering into a plea agreement, wouldn't you want to know that there is no doubt that the plea agreement is the best thing for you as opposed to the best thing for your court-appointed attorney? What Can Goldman & Associates Do For You? Our attorneys can help you throughout your entire criminal prosecution. We can help keep you out of jail while your case is pending, we can file pre-trial motions to keep you in contact with your friends and loved ones, we can file motions to suppress evidence that was obtained illegally, we can negotiate with the government to help you obtain an acceptable plea agreement, we can represent you at trial, and we can help mitigate your punishment at sentencing. No court-appointed attorney can represent you as vigorously as our lawyers can.

Child Custody

You TRUST your lawyer with your CHILD CUSTODY matter. Shouldn't he be an EXPERT? (877) 737-8800 - CALL NOW. Free Consultation.

We are experienced Custody Attorneys in Michigan and Family Lawyers in the Metro Detroit area (Macomb county, Oakland county and Wayne county). Few matters are as personal and as vital as child custody. The outcome of a custody dispute will forever impact your life and your relationship with your children. For nearly 25 years, the attorneys at Goldman & Associates have aggressively fought for the rights of their clients and their client's children to ensure that awards of custody serve their best interests. The attorneys of Goldman & Associates understand the difficulties that come along with child custody cases for all parties involved, and we truly aim to make the transition as easy as possible for our every client. Our lawyers are experts in providing solutions and outcomes that our clients desire, and we can assist you with the following in your child custody case: Establishing custody or visitation schedules Child support payment calculation Explanation of processes Custody Modification Mediation for military personnel Having custody of your child can mean legal custody, which is the right to make important decisions that affect your child's life such as religious affiliation, medical care and education, or physical custody, which is the actual possession and control of your child, or both. Joint custody can mean either joint legal custody, where the parents share decision making power, or joint physical custody, where the child divides his or her time between each parent's home, or both. In Michigan, the court determines custody based upon what it determines is in the best interest of the child. In making this determination, the court considers any factor relevant to the custody dispute, including: love, affection, and other emotional ties between the parties and the child; the ability of the parties to provide the child with love, affection, and guidance and to raise the child in his or her religion; the ability of the parties to provide the child with food, clothing, medical care, and material needs; the time the child has lived in a stable environment and the desirability of maintaining continuity; the permanence of the custodial home; the mental and physical health and moral fitness of the parties; the child's home, school and community record; the child's preference (if the court determines that the child is old enough to express one); the willingness and ability of each party to encourage a continuing relationship with the other parent; and domestic violence. Although Michigan courts are required to take each of the above factors into consideration when awarding custody, the laws governing child custody are very general. The wide-open nature of the custody process requires experienced attorneys to fight for your rights, address any complications that may arise and ensure that you are afforded the opportunity to foster a healthy relationship with your children now and into the future. The success or failure in child custody cases often boils down to preparation, planning and knowledge. At Goldman & Associates, our attorneys are well-versed in Michigan's custody statutes, legal opinions and judicial decisions regarding going back decades. As dedicated family law attorneys, we have the knowledge, experience, computer software, research abilities, and other resources critical to a successful child custody outcome.
