My philosophy in criminal cases is simple...

Criminal Defense Attorney Southfield Michigan - Law Office of Leon Weiss - Leon-Weiss

...when the government charges an individual with a crime, it is a declaration of war against that person. This process can threaten a person's freedom, reputation, financial status and peace of mind. It is my job to be a soldier for my clients in fighting their wars and making sure their constitutional rights are protected.

I pride myself in helping people in times of great stress and challenge to them and their families.

A Dedicated Southfield, MI Criminal Defense Attorney

Home Page Extension - The Law Office of Leon Weiss - home2

From all felonies and civil suits to the most minor misdemeanors, justice is a double-edged sword.

On the one hand, defendants must not be sentenced for crimes they did not commit, and even the guilty deserve dignified treatment and reasonable punishments. On the other hand, those who do serious wrongs must be held accountable.

As a personal injury and criminal defense lawyer, Leon J. Weiss upholds justice on both fronts. Serving Southfield, Detroit, and other cities throughout Michigan, we make sure that the accused are treated fairly in criminal cases. At the same time, we ensure that those guilty of negligence pay for the injuries they cause. The Law Office of Leon J. Weiss has the experience and expertise to secure fairness and accountability for all our clients.

Deft Criminal Defense

Weiss and his team believe that every defendant deserves a fair trial, respectful treatment, and if found guilty, sentencing that is proportionate to the crime.

We thus offer:

Evidence Examinations

All data is subject to interpretation, and evidence that seems to prove your guilt may, in fact, be inaccurate or misunderstood. We interview witnesses, assess forensic tests, examine breathalyzers, and otherwise make sure that all information presented is reliable.

Sentence Support

Even if you are guilty, you deserve a sentence that is comparable to the crime you committed. We thus fight to keep you out of prison, prevent you from losing privileges, and minimize fines and fees that you must pay.

Respect For Rights

Whether guilty or innocent, all defendants must be treated with dignity by court and law enforcement officials. If anyone treats you inappropriately, we will make them stop and use the incident to reduce your sentence.

Acute Appeals

If the initial ruling is inaccurate in any way, we are happy to appeal the decision until we get a fair outcome.

Whether our clients are involved in serious felony cases or more minor criminal cases, we fight for their rights for as long as it takes. Our goal is to make sure that no one is unfairly punished.

Personal Injury Prudence

In addition to ensuring fair sentencing for criminal defendants, Leon J. Weiss is also committed to obtaining redress for personal injury victims.

If someone else’s negligence causes you serious injury, we will provide:

Data Diligence

From the moment you report the injury, we begin talking to witnesses, visiting the scene of the incident, and accruing as much evidence as we can. This will allow us to prove beyond a doubt that the accused is culpable for your injury.

Investigating the Impact

In addition to proving that the accused caused your injury, it is also necessary to demonstrate that said injury is having a serious impact on your life. We thus pay close attention to all of the negative consequences, including medical expenses, missed work, physical and mental suffering, and disability. We ensure that the final settlement addresses all these concerns.

Attorney Assessments

The party responsible or their insurance company will likely assemble a team of experienced lawyers to defend themselves. We handle all interactions with such attorneys, making sure not to release any information that they could use to undermine our case.

Negotiation Know-how

Our experienced, skilled legal team is prepared to negotiate for as long as it takes to get you the compensation you deserve.
