In what could have been an open and shut case against me by the prosecution Kevin Bessant was the best decision i made. I was facing felony drug and misdemeanor drug possession charges. Kevin was able to convince the prosecutor to drop the felony charge if i plead guilty to the misdemeanor charge. He was also successful in getting the judge to sentence me immediately so the process was not dragged out, and cost me more time missed from work. He was able to convince the judge for a light and fair sentence of 12 months probation, with a possibility of having it dropped to six months. Kevin worked with me on making payments and took my case with paying him only a fraction of his retainer fee upfront. He returned my phone calls almost immediately even before i had him retained. He talked me through each step and kept me informed through the entire process. He made me feel and my family that the best case scenario would be the result and he proved that to be true. If you need a criminal defense lawyer, i wouldn't look any further than Kevin Bessant. Thank you Kevin Bessant!
Mr. Bessant listen to my issues and informed me of what I was facing prior to hiring him. After retaining Mr. Bassant he continued to be informative each step of the way. He made me and my family feel confident and relaxed in his abilities and the process ahead. My case was dimissed and all charges were droped. I highly recommend Mr. Bassant. Thank you sir.
Couldn't of asked or a better attorney. He worked on a felony fraud case for my fiance. He worked with the prosecutor and got the sentence drastically dropped down and one charge completely dismissed. My fiance got a 90 day program when he was facing years. He was extremely knowledgeable and kept me in the loop the whole time. He returned calls and texts immediately. He was confident about what he did and most importantly held my confidence through the whole process. His rates are extremely reasonable for the work that he does. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing legal help.

I recently hired Mr. Bessant to handle a drug case for me he was sure he could get it dropped down and he did everything in his power to keep the felony off my record and he did. I will use him again if I ever have any legal issues.
Kevin Bessant was extremely responsive and knowledgeable about my problem. E-mailed several times and each time, received a prompt reply with accurate instructions on what was needed. He is very easy to talk to, as he actually listens and when you talk. He installs confidence with his words. He is definitely a fantastic person to have on your side.
One of the best decisions I've made to this date was to hire attorney Kevin Bessant. When I first contacted Mr. Bessant on the phone and explained my situation he was very thorough and forthright. After being on the phone for nearly 45 seconds explaining my case he then took about ten minutes to describe some of the things that could occur if I went into court without legal representation. It was not a scare tactic nor a tactic used to pump out his chest and say hire me. He wanted me to have all of the information that I needed before hiring an attorney or deciding to choose him. I spoke with other attorney's who made my situation sound like doom and gloom and if I hired them I would have the best representation. I never felt comfortable with the others I spoke with so I decided to go with Kevin. Best decision I could have ever made. Kevin was there the entire process. When I called, emailed or text he would get back with me in a timely fashion and explain what was going on with my case. When it was time to go to court Mr. Bessant was able to work with the local prosecutor and get my case reduced to where it wouldn't go on my record and I didn't have to go to jail. During the process, Kevin was always very professional, knowledgeable and honest about what I was facing. He truly did a great job the entire way and now and I can go ahead and concentrate on my life and not worry about the legal cloud that was over my head. In closing I would recommend Kevin Bessant to anyone looking for a great defense attorney.
I am a native Detroiter who moved out of state a few years ago and left behind a legal matter that turned into a warrant for my arrest. I thought that it would be in my best interest to hire an attorney in Michigan to handle my case. After retaining (2) different lawyers within (1) year of absolutely (0) results, I decided to sever my agreement with the second attorney and start all over again. After many calls and consultations, I found Kevin Bessant's website and decided to contact him. From our initial conversation, I felt confident that he was quite knowledgeable of my type of case (unemployment benefits fraud) and knew exactly what steps to take to help me get it resolved. After retaining Attorney Bessant, he quickly got me a court date and arranged to have all of the court matters, such as the arraignment, pre-trial and sentencing to occur on the same day- which saved me the time and expense of traveling back to Detroit multiple times. Upon appearing in court and meeting him, I observed that he is very well-respected and “connected” in the courtroom. My case was satisfactorily resolved within 8 days of our initial conversation!!! I am so grateful to Mr. Bessant for being there for me at a time when I was literally in tears and in fear of entrusting another lawyer. His services are top-notch and he is a true professional and pleasure to work with. I sincerely and whole-heartedly give my highest recommendation of Attorney Bessant's firm and legal services. He is simply the best!!
I call Mr. Kevin about representation about a warrant I had
From 2006 and I spoke with him he sounded like he didn't care and said he would call me back and never did after 2 days so if this the lawyer your looking for stop looking and GET A REAL LAWYER WHO WILL CALL BACK
I was so nervous for a long time about my case. I called Mr. Bessant and told him about my case. And he told me what he wanted to do with my case in court and told me his retainer fee (extremely affordable!) If you ask me he should charge more for what he does for people! I retained him and he told me what to expect in court and what he would do for me and on the day of my court date he did exactly what he said he would do. I had a VOP on a major charge, he got my probation closed and he got my hyta status retained. I am no longer facing prison time, and my criminal record is clean. Seriously Mr. Bessant is an amazing lawyer and I would recommend him to anyone facing the courts or legal troubles. He is very good at what he does and he does what he says he's going to do. I can live an anxiety free life now and I don't have to look over my shoulder everywhere I go anymore! If you read this Mr. Bessant , THANK YOU again for what you did for me and my future!!
