    Just this week I watched Gary a motion to suppress in the Kent County District Court. I was impressed by his level of preparation and thoroughness .

  • Matthew G. Borgula

    I endorse this lawyer. As a federal prosecutor for many years, I know Gary Springstead to be one of the premier criminal defense attorneys in West Michigan. He has earned the reputation of a top-notch advocate for his clients, often obtaining results that other attorneys could not. He routinely takes on the most difficult, complex cases. I would not hesitate to recommend Gary to anyone looking for a criminal defense attorney.
