5 Steps to Take Immediately After Receiving a Tailgate Offense
1. Take a deep breath; there is nothing you can do in the moment, go enjoy the game or the rest of your night; if its late, go to bed. If you wish to take touch with an attorney, send me an email firstname.lastname@example.org or text/call me 248-924-9458. You can send me a copy of the ticket; get that off your plate. If you're a family member of the person ticketed, please email and call me, we will get a copy of the ticket later in the day.
2. Once you regroup that evening or the next day, you will see a text reply or email reply letting you know that your case is manageable and everything is going to be OK. You are where 100's of my clients have been in the past, and every single one of them had a favorable result if they followed my plan. We will discuss next steps to work together.
3. In the coming days, once we are working together, I will give you a few proactive steps to take on your own time to improve your case, and help me help you figure out a great outcome.
4. Our goal is to keep you from having a criminal record; that is a possible; it's also possible to have you excused from court, or to join court via zoom.
5. This case does not need to have long-term consequences on your life; you're successful, and having a criminal record over an isolated moment in time is not equitable. Believe in common sense; lean in on telling your story; this case will not define you.
Ann Arbor Minor In Possession
When I represent you, we can include your family in our decision making process, or keep them out of it - it's ultimately up to the person charged who they want involved. I work with a lot of families on these cases - mom and dad like to be informed of the process, and sometimes mom and dad hire me without even speaking to the client. I'm ok with any arrangement as long as you get the legal assistance your future deserves.
I handle MIP cases for students and non-students. Most commonly I represent University of Michigan students on Minor in Possession cases. If you're a student at U of M, and are interested in my legal services, I would be happy to arrange to meet you on campus to discuss your case. I know you're busy as a student, and it's difficult and uncomfortable to go visit a law firm.
If your parents are out of town, I would be happy to speak to them on the phone before and after our meeting to keep them in the loop if you so desire. I look forward to helping you.
