A True Criminal Defense Customized To Your Unique Situation

At Jocuns Law Firm, I don’t just walk clients through a plea process. I litigate each case, which may include filing motions, going to trial and pursuing appeals. My mindset is to provide a real defense based on the details of your case and the potential impact on your life.

In the courtroom or in negotiations, I am fighting for you.

No Matter What The Charges

I am attorney Bernard Jocuns. For 20 years, I have vigorously represented the accused, with many successful outcomes for my clients. At Jocuns Law Firm, I have defended people charged with murder, rape, robbery and other major crimes. I welcome all felony and misdemeanor cases, from drug charges and drunk driving arrests to allegations of domestic assault or child abuse. I also maintain a strong practice in criminal law appeals.

I never start out seeking a plea deal. I approach every case as if I will have to persuade a jury. With the support of my legal team, I pick apart the government’s evidence and work every angle to get the charges dismissed or put you in the strongest position for a favorable result.

No Matter What The Charges

I Try To Walk A Mile In Your Shoes

Getting arrested and prosecuted is a scary, stressful ordeal. My firm do not take a case unless I can put myself in the shoes of the accused. I give every client the same honest advice and earnest effort that I would give to my own family members.

My staff and I consider the person behind the charges – how this could affect your freedom, your livelihood, your standing in the community – and tailor our approach to your unique circumstances. Prior convictions or addiction issues, for example, may require different strategies than a person who has never been “in the system” before.

Strong Advocacy For The Injured Too

Attorney Bernard Jocuns

A True Trial Lawyer On Your Side

Few defense attorneys can say they have published decisions in cases before the Michigan Supreme Court and Michigan Court of Appeals. I am a graduate of the renowned Gerry Spence Trial Lawyers College and, in turn, I have taught courses on trial advocacy to other attorneys. My comfort level in the courtroom should be a comfort to you.

Exercise Your Right To An Attorney

It is true that anything you say to a police officer can and will be used against you. Resist the urge to give explanations or excuses. Your best move is to exercise your right to remain silent. Politely refuse to answer questions, then promptly call my office to arrange a free initial consultation. I will advise you on what to say and do to avoid harm to your case, while I am working behind the scenes to prepare a robust defense.

I welcome inquiries and referrals in Lapeer County, Genesee County and surrounding jurisdictions, and I have tried cases throughout Michigan. Reach out at 810-498-2772 or use the form below.
