Put Our Decades of Experience on Your Side

Once the police accuse you of committing a crime, criminal charges soon follow. You need a criminal defense lawyer who understands the charges you are facing. Before you talk with the police, you should always consult with an attorney first. What you say to the police will be used to strengthen the criminal charges, not exonerate you.

The police interview suspects to obtain evidence to support the criminal charges. What you say will be used by law enforcement to build a criminal case. By consulting with Attorney Fragel before you talk with law enforcement, you may completely avoid facing criminal charges. Attorney Fragel’s background in Michigan criminal law, including his past experience as a prosecutor, can assist you on key aspects of the case.

Depending on the nature of your case and the various circumstances involved, we may employ any of the following tactics:

  • Arranging a polygraph exam to establish your innocence
  • Interviewing the police witnesses
  • Inspecting the evidence gathered
  • Advising you on the legality of search warrants and your right to remain silent
  • Conducting a private investigation to build your defense
  • Obtaining independent medical and scientific testing
  • Explaining your version of events to the police, without the risk of self-incrimination

These are the steps law enforcement uses to prove your guilt. You are entitled to have a consultation with a criminal defense lawyer at each step of the criminal procedure.

With more than 25 years of trial experience, Attorney Fragel knows how to minimize the impact of criminal charges on you and your family. If you are the focus of a criminal investigation, contact us immediately for a consultation with an honest, experienced criminal defense attorney in Traverse City.
