As a community with a large student population, the Lansing area is subject to numerous instances of what could be called "campus crime." Ranging from minor offenses such as noise violations to more severe crimes such as sexual assault, there is a broad range of criminal offenses that we at Baird and Zulakis P.C., Attorneys at Law, handle on a regular basis.
Protecting The Rights Of Students And Those In The University Community
If you are a Michigan State University student charged with a crime (or the parent of a student who faces criminal charges), you have access to legal resources to help you defend yourself. While a school attorney can be helpful, the fact is that these lawyers carry large caseloads and cannot provide the level of personalized attention our firm offers.
