Violent Crimes

Detroit Violent Crime Lawyers

Defending the Accused in Wayne, Macomb & Oakland Counties

Federal law enforcement, including the FBI, ATF, DEA and the United States Attorneys in Michigan, investigate and prosecute allegations of violent crimes ranging from assault to murder. Although there is no death penalty in Michigan state courts, federal prosecutors can ask for the death penalty where there has been a death as the result of a federal crime. Other penalties can be up to life in prison. Our attorneys have successfully obtained dismissal of a federal death penalty charge and have successfully defended a federal prosecution against the death penalty, United States v. O’Reilly, 2010. 

If you or someone you know is the subject of an investigation for one of these serious offenses or has been charged in federal court, you should contact an experienced and tested attorney at Gurewitz & Raben, PLC, familiar with federal law enforcement procedures and the federal criminal justice system. Contact us online or at (313) 488-4422.
