Representing Clients Charged With a Variety of Offenses

If you or a loved one has been charged with a crime, it is important to speak with our Flint criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible. Waiting to get legal representation may limit your defense options. At the law office of Charles D. Riley, Attorney at Law, we handle a variety of misdemeanor and felony-level charges, including:

  • Drunk driving (DUI/DWI): A drunk driving conviction can result in higher insurance premiums, the loss of your driver's license, and even jail time. We will work to help you build a strong defense against these charges. We can also help with driver's license reinstatement if you have had your license suspended.
  • Property crimes: We handle all types of theft charges, from robbery and burglary to automobile theft. We will fight to ensure that your rights are protected.
  • Assault and battery: From bar fights to cases involving domestic violence, we will work diligently to defend against these charges.
  • Disorderly conduct: We handle all types of cases involving disorderly conduct charges, from fleeing a police officer to public intoxication to fighting. We understand how to build the most effective defense.
  • Criminal mischief: Vandalism, graffiti and other forms of property destruction may appear to be relatively harmless, especially when committed by juveniles. However, a conviction will result in a criminal record that can follow a person for life.
  • Drug crimes: Charges involving drug trafficking, distribution and the manufacture of marijuana for medical purposes can result in severe penalties, including decades of prison time. It is important to have aggressive legal counsel in your corner to protect your rights. We also provide defense against marijuana possession and minor in possession charges.

In every criminal case, it is our goal to have the charges against you dismissed. When this is not a possibility, we will work with the prosecution toward a fine reduction, sentence reduction, probation or work release.
