A Southfield, MI Criminal Defense Attorney that Will Fight for Your Freedom
“Innocent until proven guilty” is a central tenet of American law, yet we often fail to apply it.
Even before they go to trial, defendants must fend off attacks on their reputation and mistreatment by court and law enforcement officials. They are also frequently subject to unfair sentences, serving more prison time and paying higher fines than their crimes warrant. As an experienced criminal defense attorney in Michigan, Leon Weiss strives to stop these abuses.
Our team supports defendants in Detroit, Southfield, Flint, Lansing, and other communities throughout the state, upholding the rights and dignity of all who are accused.
