About our Troy, MI: office


Dynamic Michigan law firm protects the rights of clients facing charges

If you face criminal charges in the Detroit area, you deserve an experienced defense lawyer who has a reputation for winning the tough cases. At Richards & Associates, PLLC in Troy, I will confront police and prosecutors on your behalf and fight for the best possible resolution. In practice for nearly 20 years, I don't back down when my clients' freedom is at stake. My firm represents individuals accused of all types of crimes in Michigan state and federal courts. Whatever the particular allegation might be, I provide attentive service and draw upon my big-firm experience to build the most complete defense possible. I understand the stress that criminal accusations cause and battle every day to ease my clients' burdens. I, Ray E. Richards II, am committed to giving you the confidence to overcome whatever legal trouble you face.

Established lawyer serves as conscience, counsel and champion defender

Hiring the right criminal defense attorney can make a huge difference in the lives of you and your family for years to come. You can rely on my legal representation because I am:

• Highly respected — Having practiced in Michigan for nearly two decades, I have earned recognition from clients, peers and national organizations as a top criminal defense lawyer. You can trust that I will provide the aggressive support you need to maximize your chance at a positive result.

• Trial-ready — In courts throughout the area, I have won acquittals in cases involving all types of criminal charges. I can often negotiate a more favorable plea agreement because I am never afraid to go to trial.

• Dedicated to enforcing every client's rights — Too many defendants surrender their fundamental legal rights because they feel like underdogs, unable to challenge the government's power. I will stand up to strong-arm tactics and fiercely defend your rights from day one.

If you have been charged with a crime, do not hesitate to take action. Prosecutors and police officers are already trying to build a case against you. My firm offers a free initial consultation so that you can get the information and protection you need at once.

• Criminal defense — For any criminal defense case, I am an aggressive advocate who doesn't just settle for quick deals but focuses on winning.

• Drug crime allegations — Whether your charge relates to possession, sale or manufacture, I have a long, successful track record handling drug crime cases in state and federal courts.
