When you are facing allegations of sexual assault, it is difficult to know where to turn and who to trust. I have represented countless individuals who have been accused of sex crimes against both adults and children across the State of Michigan. It is a major focus of my law firm. I will guide you through the process. With The Bennett Law Firm at your side, you know you’re getting a compassionate attorney.
My extensive experience with these cases gives you the advantage. We will work with you to overcome the stigma of the charges and defend your rights. If convicted of these offenses many carry extreme penalties such as life in prison or registration on the Michigan Sex Offender Registry for the rest of your life. We will examine all the evidence, including the testimony of medical professionals and of alleged victims to combat the allegations against you.
If you’re charged with drunk driving, it can be scary and overwhelming. That is why you need a defense attorney that will not only explain what happens in Court but also help put a plan in place for your defense, which includes a variety of methods to not only assist with your case but set you up for success in your life.
From investigating the reason you were pulled over to arguing for a reduced sentence, and everything in between, you need someone on your side that truly cares. I have helped dozens of clients navigate the complicated Court system and get their lives back on track after misdemeanor and felony drunk driving charges. Your long-term success is my goal.
Not all drunk driving cases are the same. Hire a defense attorney who understands that each client’s plan is catered to their needs.

If your Michigan driver’s license has been suspended or revoked, your daily life can be dramatically impacted. Losing your driver’s license puts you in a very difficult situation. Do you drive to work, and risk being arrested, or do you spend your hard-earned money on cabs and Ubers?
There are many reasons someone can find themselves suspended, denied, or revoked, and unable to drive. From drunk driving or drug convictions to failure to pay tickets, or refusing a breathalyzer, many people find themselves in this position.
The State of Michigan has an appeals process that can help you obtain your driver’s license and regain control over your life. Through the Driver’s License Appeals Division (DLAD), you can request a hearing to argue for the return of your driving privileges upon determining that you’re eligible. You need an experienced, hard-working attorney on your side to guide you through this process and successfully handle the hearing.
Whether you’re charged with simple misdemeanor possession or a more serious delivery/manufacture felony drug crime, the Court process can be daunting. The State of Michigan has been cracking down on everyone from drug dealers to personal users, so it’s important to put a plan in place before you enter a Courtroom.
Most of the time with delivery/manufacture charges, Prosecutors take several weeks to issue charges. The Michigan State Police Crime Laboratory must test and confirm the presence of the suspected drug before you can be charged. This waiting period is vital, and the case can be won or lost during this time. It’s important to always be proactive and have an attorney on your side well in advance of charges being issued.
