Oakland County Criminal Defense Lawyer

Being accused of a crime can be a terrifying and intimidating experience. Law enforcement and the criminal justice system can seem harsh, cold, and unyielding, with little regard for your humanity. You can feel intimidated by police, judges, and the legal procedures and be unfamiliar with your rights. These situations can be overwhelming due to high stress, anxiety, and uncertainty about your future.

Turning to a reputable and proven lawyer in these matters is your legal right and a crucial factor in your defense. At HJP Legal, we understand what you are going through, which is why our Oakland County criminal defense attorney provides knowledgeable legal guidance, strategic defense plans, and a client support system founded on empathy. 

Attorney Halley J. Peters recognizes the individuality of each client, each situation, and each case. No two criminal arrests or charges are alike, which is why her defense strategies are tailored to the person and circumstances at hand. Her personalized attorney-client relationship means you will receive the care and attention you need at this critical juncture. 

Whether you are facing a minor misdemeanor or a serious felony, you deserve the best possible defense from an attorney who is honest, trustworthy, accessible, and committed to fighting for your rights and best interests.

Put a legal ally on your side in the face of a criminal investigation, arrest, or charges. Call HJP Legal at (734) 593-1688 for a confidential consultation with our Oakland County criminal defense attorney today.

How HJP Legal Can Help

Licensed in Michigan, Florida & California

Our firm's approach to serving clients is based on delivering comprehensive legal support from start to finish. Ms. Peters is not interested in expediting as many cases as possible through the court system.

We are attuned to the potential consequences you could be facing, from jail or prison time to hefty fines, lengthy probation, and the adverse effects of a permanent criminal record. That is why we work so hard to minimize those consequences through meticulous investigation, evidence gathering and analysis, negotiations with prosecutors where applicable, and aggressive advocacy in court.
