Grand Rapids Criminal Defense Attorneys

Ready to Defend Your Rights

Being charged with a crime, whether a misdemeanor or felony, is a serious matter. Even if you are not facing jail time, having a criminal conviction on your record will limit your opportunities for employment, housing, and more. The first thing you need to do after an arrest is find a skilled attorney.

Anything you say after an arrest can be used against you, so do not try to talk to the police without an attorney present. One of your most valuable rights is the right to remain silent. Law enforcement does not want to hear your side of the story, they are listening for any inconsistencies in your story that will make you look guilty. The Grand Rapids criminal defense lawyers at Tanis Schultz are here to fight for your rights and protect your best interests.

If you have been charged with a crime in West Michigan area, contact Tanis Schultz today at 616-227-3737.

What We Do

Your attorney has one job: protect your best interests. No matter what crime you are accused of, it is your lawyer’s duty to secure the best possible outcome. This is why it is strongly recommended that you not discuss the details of your situation with anyone other than your attorney. Even well-meaning friends and family members can end up incriminating you if called to testify. Prosecutors know how to press on ambiguous issues with witnesses and cast doubt upon a defendant’s innocence. By keeping the details private and speaking only with your lawyer, you can prevent this from happening.

Criminal cases we handle include:

At Tanis Schultz, our Grand Rapids criminal defense lawyers fight aggressively to secure the best possible outcome. What this looks like is different for everyone. Some clients can secure a complete dismissal of charges, while others might have serious felonies reduced to misdemeanors. We work closely with our clients through every stage of the case, making sure they understand how things are proceeding to help them make informed decisions.
