Types of Cases We Handle 

Sumner & Associates, P.C. provides services in different practice areas. We have extensive knowledge and a Clarkston lawyer with experience in the following types of cases: 

Personal Injury 

If you were injured in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries in addition to other losses. Personal injury cases include the following: motor vehicle accidents, slip and falls, pedestrian accidents, motorcycle accidents, injuries resulting from a defective product, and injuries from toxins.  

Our legal team includes a senior attorney, a former adjuster for a large insurance company, who understands the inner workings of how insurance companies settle cases. With this knowledge, we can obtain the best results you deserve. 

DUI Defense & Criminal Law 

It is the sad truth that there are times when a person’s rights are violated during a criminal investigation or while a person is in police custody.  Other times, an innocent person is wrongfully charged with a crime. With over 30 years of combined experience, members of our legal team have worked for the Oakland County Prosecutors, 52-3 District Court, Wayne County Juvenile Court and City of Detroit-Law Department. Understanding how the other side thinks helps us better advocate as well as protect your rights. 

Don’t lose hope if you believe the prosecution’s evidence against you is solid. We conduct an independent investigation, questioning both the veracity and legality of the prosecution’s evidence. We represent clients charged with misdemeanors and felonies, such as the following:  

  • DUI and other driving offenses 
  • Drug possession 
  • Domestic violence 
  • Shoplifting or retail fraud 
  • Assault and battery 
  • Resisting or obstructing 

Family Law 

It could be detrimental to your case if you do not you adhere to the family court’s strict rules. A Village of Clarkston lawyer can help you understand both the laws involved as well as each family law judge’s strict rules. We can help you with different family law matters, such as divorce, child custody, child support matters, annulment, alimony requests, and other family law disputes.  

Estate Planning, Trusts, Wills & Probate 

No matter how old you are, it is always good to plan for your family’s future. Estate planning helps you plan ahead to ensure that your loved ones are provided for after you pass away. This includes preparing for incapacity, such as medical and financial durable powers of attorney, preparing a will or Revocable Living Trust. We could also help establish court ordered conservatorships and guardianships. We will review your circumstances to determine the best plan to help the ones you love while avoiding probate costs.
