Metro Detroit Criminal Defense Attorney

Facing a criminal charge is one of the most terrifying experiences in life. The criminal laws are generally designed to give no breaks and once a person is alleged to have committed a criminal offense, expect the criminal justice system to roll on implacably.

The consequences of criminal offenses are severe and life-altering. They range from imprisonment to fines, and loss of certain privileges. But, some of the most damaging consequences are often those that result from the status of being convicted of a crime, which can include loss of the rights to child custody, as well as life long reduced job and life opportunities.

Considering the horrible consequences of a criminal charge, it is absolutely crucial to contact an experienced Metro Detroit criminal defense attorney immediately when the charge is filed. When a criminal charge is filed, there is no time to waste as the police and prosecutors will already be working hard to find evidence that supports the charge.

These offenses generally carry stern penalties that can have life-altering consequences. If you have been charged with a criminal offense in Michigan, you need to act fast if you are going to secure a positive conclusion. Get in touch with Allison today.


  • Federal crimes: Being charged with a federal crime can often be an entirely different affair. This is because the federal criminal justice system is often unforgiving, and includes definitions of crime and consequences that are strict, to say the least. A person charged with a federal criminal offense must be prepared for an incredibly tough process, and for this purpose, only the services of a tough-as-nails criminal defense attorney will suffice.


  • Family-centered criminal defense: Although it is disheartening when it occurs, families can often be a target of criminal acts, often by a family member. However, there are several other cases where a charge is wrongly filed, such as unfair or illegal charges of child abuse or neglect. Allison provides legal defense to assist parents or individuals unfairly charged in these situations.


Criminal Defense for Parents in Michigan

Allison is a criminal defense expert for families that are charged with criminal violations under Michigan family law. There are many instances in which the services of an accomplished criminal defense attorney will be required in family law cases. These include:

  • Criminal allegations of child abuse or neglect
  • Failure to pay child or spousal support
  • Domestic abuse
  • Child abduction
  • Endangerment of a child
  • Child pornography or sexual abuse

While there are situations where many of these charges will be justified, there are several more where the allegations are unfounded and unfair. Sadly, innocent persons can get caught up in situations very easily, and before a lengthy examination shows their innocence, they may have lost too much, including their own children.

Parents can often find themselves walking a tightrope when it comes to allegations of child abuse, medical abuse, or neglect especially. It takes only one phone call to get Child Protective Services involved in a situation, and once they are involved, the situation can deteriorate drastically.

Expungement of Records from Child Abuse Register

CPS maintains a child abuse register to which it adds the names of individuals who have been found culpable of child abuse or neglect violations. The purpose of the register is to serve as notification to government and private agencies that the person in question is a proven child abuser.

Being added to the child abuse register can be very damaging for individuals, especially with respect to anything involving children. Such an individual may be barred from adopting a child, obtaining or retaining child custody, or getting any jobs or appointments that have anything to do with children. In addition, being added to the child abuse registry can be damaging to a person’s reputation and good standing in society.

Sadly, many people find their names on the child abuse register even when they are innocent of the charges against them. Allison understands the detrimental effect of having one’s name on this register and has been very successful at making sure this damaging information is expunged.

If you were unfairly or illegally added to the child abuse register, contact Allison Folmar at once. She will work tirelessly to interface with the relevant agencies and clear your name of all wrongdoing.
