Criminal Defense

Criminal Defense Lawyers

With an in-house former prosecutor, our defense team knows how the other side thinks.

The Right Defense for You

Every criminal case is different, and every criminal defendant’s life circumstances are different. In some cases, a plea agreement will be the best option. In others, evidence may have been illegally collected and a motion to suppress may be your best move. Sometimes it may be in your best interest to go to trial.

At Sharp & Associates Law Firm, our experienced Criminal Defense team, which understands how the other side thinks, will take the time to assess your case, explain your options and recommend the best course of action for you.

We serve all of West Michigan; Kalamazoo County, Kent County, Calhoun County, Berrien County, Van Buren County, Cass County, St. Joseph County, Ottawa County, Branch County, and Barry County.

If you’ve been charged with a crime, you may not know where to turn for help. Having a former prosecutor and experienced criminal defense attorney in your corner may help ease your mind and make all the difference in the resolution of your criminal charges.

The criminal justice system can be intimidating. Attempting to navigate it alone or having an inexperienced attorney, who doesn’t specialize in criminal law, can be costly. Simple mistakes like overlooking a document you didn’t know you had to file or missing a deadline can cut off important defenses or leave you without access to key witnesses. Fortunately, you don’t have to fight this battle alone. Sharp & Associates Law Firm specializes in Criminal Defense, and with a former prosecutor, who spent years on the other side on our team, we know how the other side thinks.

If you’ve been charged with a crime, schedule a free consultation with one of our experienced Criminal Defense Attorneys right away. Timing matters. Call 269-978-6560.

Finding the Right Criminal Defense Lawyer for You

When you’re facing criminal charges, it goes without saying that you’ll want a knowledgeable lawyer with criminal defense experience by your side—someone who can clearly explain the process and your options, investigate the strength or weakness of the case against you and take responsibility for meeting deadlines and other procedural requirements. But don’t stop there. It’s just as important that your attorney is invested in your future and understands what it takes to get your charges dropped, reduced, or dismissed. That is why at Sharp & Associates Law Firm, we have a former prosecutor and experienced defense attorneys ready to defend your rights and freedom.
