Project Safe Streets (Violent Felons, Gun Charges, and Gang Prosecutions)

Springstead Bartish & Borgula Law, P.L.L.C. has the resources and determination to protect the rights of our clients charged with serious violent crimes in the federal courts, which often carry draconian sentences upon conviction.  Our award-winning federal criminal defense attorneys include two former FBI agents, one former JAG lawyer, a former federal prosecutor, and the former U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Michigan, with the experience, skill, and commitment to defending clients facing federal charges,  such as:

  • Felon in Possession of a Firearm
  • Felon in Possession of Ammunition
  • Unlawful possession of a prohibited firearm, i.e., a machine gun or sawed-off shotgun
  • Gang related drug charges

Federal law enforcement officers in and around Grand Rapids lead several local state and local task forces in West Michigan, targeting violent felons who possession weapons or drugs, repeat offenders.   Those facing federal charges for any of these alleged violations of law face harsh mandatory minimum sentences and lengthy prison sentences under the federal sentencing guidelines.   The federal government possesses a tremendous amount of power when it chooses to use harsh federal gun and drug laws to curb violent crimes.  If you or somebody you know is accused of any such crimes, you should contact an experienced federal criminal defense attorney immediately.  The federal criminal lawyers at Springstead Bartish & Borgula Law, are uniquely qualified to defend these charges and will try and win your case or get you the best possible result.
