Here is what the East Lansing and Birmingham Criminal Defense & Personal Injury Attorneys at Abood Law Firm will bring to your case:


As experienced attorneys, we will leverage our knowledge of the law to advise you of the best course of action to pursue in order to achieve the best possible outcome for your legal issues.


There are often issues that only an experienced attorney would recognize to be advantageous to your case. Without an attorney who is experienced in the area of your particular legal concern, you could be overlooking opportunities to win your case and achieve your desired outcome.

Abood Law Firm has offices in East Lansing and Birmingham, MI. and we are experienced in defending clients throughout the state of Michigan in a wide range of legal matters, including:

  • Criminal Defense & OWI / DUI Law
  • Personal Injury Law
  • Divorce, Child Custody & Family Law


Most legal clients have the same fundamental concerns. First of all, they are concerned about their families and/or their liberty, as well as, the affect their legal issues may have on their lives––public, private and professional. It is our job to help alleviate your concerns and to pursue a strategy that is best for you and your family, and that ultimately protects your liberty and future.


Legal processes can be complex and are not always necessarily fair. So, you need an attorney to advocate on your behalf and to ensure that your concerns are heard and that you are treated fairly.

How your case is received will largely depend on how it is presented to the court. When you need to express to the court that you are a good father, husband, friend, and a law-abiding citizen, having someone else to advocate on your behalf can determine whether the court believes you, or not.


It's not enough that you have an experienced attorney or a clever attorney, you need the right attorney. Someone you are comfortable with and in whom you can put your trust. A good attorney not only defends and protects his client's rights, he also supports them emotionally throughout the legal process.


You need an attorney who not only knows the legal system inside out, but who is empathetic and can put himself into his client's shoes. Our criminal defense attorneys understand that we represent real people with real problems which enable them to represent our clients in the same manner in which they would want to be represented.
