Brian R. Watkins
Brian Watkins earned his reputation as a fighter for justice successfully defending clients accused of serious crimes in courtrooms across Michigan. He is admitted to practice in all Michigan state and federal courts and the United States 6th Circuit Court of Appeals.
Brian serves on the Board of Directors for the Criminal Defense Attorneys of Michigan (CDAM), is a member of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (NACDL), and served on the State Bar of Michigan's criminal law executive committee. He is a graduate of Gerry Spence's famed Trial Lawyers College in Dubois, Wyoming, the CDAM Trial College, and the federal Hillman Advocacy Program.
Our government has virtually unlimited resources with which to investigate and prosecute the accused. Brian Watkins knows that real justice must hustle harder. He believes that consistently getting the best possible results for his clients means consistently outworking the opposition.
Our criminal courts are complex and often confusing for those facing criminal charges. Brian makes sure his clients understand the process they are going through and what it means for their case. He believes a well-informed client is not only an ethical requirement, but also better able to work with their lawyer and more likely to achieve a successful outcome.
The criminal justice system can be hostile towards defendants and our constitutional rights. Brian believes every accused deserves nothing less than a lawyer who is devoted to their cause and not swayed by fear. Brian Watkins knows who he works for and why. When he represents you, you are truly represented and know it.
