Criminal Defense

Criminal defense is a part of the law that allows attorneys to work with individuals charged with a crime in the state of Michigan and to defend them to the fullest extent of the law. One of the best things about the United States is the presumed innocence of all citizens until they are proven guilty in a court of law. If you have been arrested and charged with a crime, it is important to remember that you are not guilty of that crime until you get your day in court. By working with an experienced team like the attorneys at Sumner & Associates, you can give yourself a chance to present a strong defense in court and possibly be acquitted of your charges.


We are adept at fighting many different kinds of criminal charges, including the following –


  • Domestic violence
  • Assault
  • Shoplifting
  • Drug crimes
  • Fraud
  • Armed robbery
  • Carjacking
  • Kidnapping
  • Many, many more


When on trial for a criminal act, you might be facing the possibility of receiving a long jail sentence among other serious punishments. Don’t just stand by and accept whatever the court decides is your fate – you have the chance to defend yourself, and you should do so. Working together with Sumner & Associates is a smart move by which you can use our experience and knowledge to help defend against the charges you are facing.
