Legal Resources

Learning about legal topics requires research. As your Ann Arbor Criminal Defense law firm we have compiled a list of legal resources that may assist your research. We believe educating yourself on your particular criminal case will assist you in making the best decision for you. We encourage all clients to conduct their own research on their legal matter. This allows you to ask us questions, challenge us, and possibly, even assist with a possible defense for your criminal case. However, we want to emphasize as your criminal lawyer, we are your legal expert. We will do everything in our power to get your conviction overturned, your divorce settled, or your custody despute put to rest.

What are the 5 Stages of Legal Research? Step 1: Introduction

Step 3: Determine Your Legal Problem and Your Desired Outcome

Client Reviews
Sam was a helpful lawyer who is a man of his word. He helped in our cases 2 times in a row with successful outcomes. I could not think of a better lawyer who is always on time to court, good attitude, smart, and honest. He is respectful and answers all of the questions we had. Two cases were both a success thanks to Sam Gigi
It has been a couple of days since Sam represented my son in Washtenaw County. He gave me the miracle I prayed for. He did way more than I thought was possible and as I told him on the phone I would hug him if I could. If you ever need a good lawyer, this guy is the one to hire – and his prices are very very reasonable. I wish him much prosperity and a good life. He made my life happy for the first time in a long time and I cannot thank him enough. Linda
Sam took my call and consulted me immediately. He provided fair pricing for the legal services I was requiring. I hired him about a week before my case, he still took on the case load and did amazing work. He is an excellent attorney and a friendly person to be in the court room with when you’re in a stressful situation. Devon
