My name is Dustyn Coontz, and I founded Coontz Law to serve the criminal defense needs of Lansing and the surrounding areas. This is the part of most lawyers’ websites where they talk about themselves – the honors in law school they received, their career accomplishments, and their community involvement. We are not going to do that. Not because we don’t have those things, but because you probably don’t care all that much.
If you’re here right now, you are probably going through one of the toughest, darkest, scariest times of your life. We want to get you through that. If you have been wrongly accused, we want to get you acquitted. If you are experiencing something in your personal life that caused you to make an unfortunate decision, we want to get you somewhere that can help you through that problem. If you made a mistake, we want to make it so that mistake doesn’t define the rest of your life.
If you want to know about us, here is what you should know: we are a skilled group of attorneys and legal professionals, and we practice criminal defense because it’s what we are passionate about. We help people with their whole lives by providing a dedicated client care team (the CCT), we make sure things get to the right places with our legal assistance team (the LAT), and we get the job done in court with our attorney team (the A-Team). We enjoy helping people through their worst times so they can get back to living their best lives. Whether you’re facing drug crime charges or a DUI, we can help.
READ DUSTYN’S NEW BOOK: “SURVIVING A CRIMINAL CASE IN MICHIGAN (AND PICKING UP THE PIECES AFTERWARD)”
Maybe it’s the flashing lights in your rearview, or perhaps it’s a knock or a battering ram at your door. However, your first interaction with the criminal justice system happens, this encounter is likely just the start of a long, stressful journey.
Dustyn wrote this book not for lawyers but for regular folks who are likely going through the worst time of their entire lives. This book isn’t going to save your skin or protect your liberty. Instead, it’s meant as a companion to help you understand what it is you’re up against, what you can expect at different stages of your case, and some ways to either beat a case or to lessen the damages. While not intended as a substitute for actual legal advice, Dustyn wants you to at least get an idea of what your case could be like.
