Being the subject of a criminal investigation is stressful. Many of our clients and their families have no experience with the criminal justice system.

Michigan criminal attorney Nicholas Leydorf has achieved outstanding results for clients who were facing accusations of sex crimesdriving under the influence, weapons offenses, assault and batterydrug offenses(such as possession and possession with intent to deliver), and various white-collar crimes.

White collar crimes are serious, as are offenses involving burglary, homicide, carjacking, and other serious or heinous crimes. That being said, there seems to be an alarming rise in the number of cases in Lansing, Ingham County, and throughout Michigan involving drunk driving and DUI, possessing illegal drugs and narcotics, even distributing illicit substances within the state or across state lines. While these types of crimes certainly seem less serious than murder or kidnapping, the criminal penalties for DUI and drug offenses are extremely harsh, and include not only substantial fines and driver’s license suspension, but possible jail time, community service, court-order alcohol and/or drug rehabilitation, and more.

We serve the following localities: Calhoun County, Battle Creek, Clinton County, St. Johns, DeWitt, Genesee County, Flint, Ingham County, East Lansing, Lansing, Isabella County, Mount Pleasant, Jackson County, Jackson, Kalamazoo County, Kalamazoo, Kent County, Grand Rapids, Oakland County, Pontiac, Saginaw County, Saginaw, Washtenaw County, Ann Arbor, Allegan County, Allegan, Branch County, Coldwater, Eaton County, and Charlotte.

With sentence, former Michigan quarterback Feagin gets a second chance

Nick was an outstanding lawyer. He took a very bad situation for me and turned it around to make it a valuable life lesson. His knowledge of the system allowed me to get through the system quickly and with the best possible outcome. I would recommend him to anyone. Professional, friendly, and aggressive in the courtroom. Plus he has very fair rate. You won’t be disappointed.

Nick was an awesome lawyer! I could not have been more pleased with the outcome and how great he was as a professional and a person throughout the whole ordeal. Definitely recommended!

A false accusation was made against me. CPS made me leave my home until they could determine what happened. This lawyer had me back in my home within ten days! He went with me for my interview, set up polygraphs and made sure all the information got to the proper people so that this case could be closed. At the time, it didn’t seem fast enough but looking back I can’t be more thankful that he was there to help my family get through this very trying time. I hope to never need his services again but if I do I would hire him with confidence.

Nick is an awesome attorney! He is very knowledgable, but also very kind. Even the judge remarked to my ex during one hearing something to the effect of how Mr. Leydorf is very fair and intelligent and will do what is right. It impressed both my mother and I that he has a great reputation inside the courtroom. He has seen me through the darkest moments in my life and fought for the safety and well being of both myself and my children. He has answered my *numerous* questions with sound, clear advice and without being condescending or cold. This man is worth his weight in gold! I would recommend him to anyone.

Mr. Leydorf is definitely one that has tenacity. I’ve had to utilize his services a couple of times. Each time he tackled the issue with such force that I was very glad that I was the one that hired him. He is extremely efficient, thorough, knowledgeable and fierce. I hope to never have to use is services again but if I do. I would fell very confident knowing he is handling my defense.

Nick Leydorf has been a wonderful attorney he took on my guardianship case knowing that I was in California and that I would be commuting back and forth to Michigan to settle this matter. Nick went above and beyond to make the reunion with my children happen. If ever I should need an attorney again I would not hesitate to call Nick.

Fantastic lawyer! Prompt and very knowledgable. Highly recommended!

Great attorney, returns calls in a timely manner and very knowledgeable. Very personable and would hire him again.

When I got into a tough bind and began searching for lawyers in the greater Lansing area, Nick was the easy choice. He was personable, straight-forward, and provided the results he had promised. Compared to the other lawyers in the area/industry he wasn’t stodgy, condescending, nor short in conversation. It was remarkable to work with someone who didn’t just treat you like “another case”. Incidentally, I have begun to use Nick’s services for my small business, and have been equally impressed. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing a fair, hardworking lawyer who will not only work for you, but also with you.

Mr. Leydorf is professional, friendly, and is a excellent trial lawyer. Mr. Leydorf is also extremely proficient in Michigan Law. I’ve personally utilized his services and have recommended him to others. If you’re looking for a competent attorney, please consider calling Mr. Leydorf.
