Michael Humphreys Attorney At Law

Michael Humphreys ESQ.

The first time Michael Humphreys stood in front of a jury he knew he was exactly where he was meant to be.  A highly accomplished trial attorney, Michael spent the majority of his legal career  (over 30 years) as a federal prosecutor handling criminal prosecutions in various jurisdictions in the United States.  His prior experience as a prosecutor in the United States Attorneys Offices for Washington, D.C. and Las Vegas have given Michael unique perspective and insight into how federal investigations and prosecutions occur. 

Within the field of federal criminal law, Michael has significant experience with asset forfeiture matters, an area that is often arcane, complicated and unfamiliar to most lawyers.  In fact, when other criminal lawyers have asset forfeiture questions, they call Michael.   

If you need a powerful advocate in the courtroom, Michael is the person to see.  In addition to being an engaging court presence, Michael is a gifted writer and has handled numerous federal appeals in various federal circuit courts.  An astute listener with good judgment, Michael understands that cases are won or lost based upon the small details.  He always puts his clients’ interests ahead of everything else and understands the stakes involved with federal criminal defense. 

If you want a lawyer that will tell it to you straight and will always give you guidance and representation from a place of honesty, you want Michael in your corner.  A tireless advocate for his clients, Michael knows what it takes to win and knows how to get there.     

When he’s not busy representing clients, Michael enjoys spending his time with his wife, traveling, reading, golfing and, like any good native of Detroit, rooting for the Detroit Lions.
