I was charged with a felony gun charge. Concealed Carry without a license to do so. I had never been in trouble before. I was out of state. Not only did Gary and his team show they cared about my situation, they put effort into fighting my case. They got my bond amended so I could return to my home state and keep my job. Amazingly enough, thanks to Gary, my charge was dismissed! I had a serious case that if I was charged guilty would effect the rest of my life. I would have never been able to possess a gun again. Thanks to Gary, Kathy, Tammy and his team, I am a free woman and will be able to go home and apply for my CCW. I would recommend Springsteen and Burtish Law group to anyone.

Gary Springstead saved my life! It was my first offence owi charge. I was sleeping in my car with the ignition on when the cops showed up and arrested me. I had no idea what to do, I've never been in a situation like this. So, I began to research different law firms around the area using the internet. The one law firm that stood out the most was Springstead Bartish and Borgula law. With there perfect 5 star ratings I kept researching. I kept reading and reading all these perfect 5 star reviews from past clients. I was convinced so I gave them a call and talked to Gary about my situation. After talking to him, my stress and anxiety level went down drastically. His confidence and honesty was what I liked about him, he was upfront about everything including what he charges and that's what made me hire him. BEST DECISION OF MY LIFE. The only time I appeared in court was for my arraignment, other than that Gary took care of everything with the prosecutor behind the scenes. If I had any questions they were quick to respond whether via email or phone call. His team was constantly updating me on the status of my case. There was never a time that I didn't know what was going on. Gary Springstead had my misdemeanor owi charge dropped to a civil infraction reckless driving charge with only a few points on my license and a ticket for reckless driving. He had my case dismissed and my implied consent refusal dropped. I can't thank Gary enough for what he did for me. I would recommend Gary Springstead to everybody whose in need of a criminal defence attorney. He is the best around. Thank you again Gary Springstead.

Believe the reviews about Gary. He and Kathy are amazing people who genuinely care about you. I cannot stress this enough. They are truly powerhouse lawyers, who will get results. Even the prosecutor and court admitted that once I hired them, I made an amazing decision. I'm a first year grad student in a medical profession. I got pulled over in Big Rapids one night and charged with a DUI. It was the first time I ever had a run in with the law and I did not know what to do. I panicked and hired a cheaper lawyer, who ended up dragging the process out by months (because it did not work with her schedule), she wouldn't return my phone calls, I never knew what was going on with my case, and the worse part was that she continuously kept trying to tell me to take the plea (which was offered to me before I even hired her, so she did absolutely nothing). She told me the plea was a great bargain (it was an OWVI, a lesser DUI but still a DUI). I never met her, and she had planned on sending an associate in her place to the plea acceptance. I could tell that she didn't even do anything with my case because every time I called her, her secretary did not know a thing about my case. Out of panic, I called around to get a second opinion, and I DID MY RESEARCH CAREFULLY THIS TIME! I read all the reviews on Gary Springstead, and I reached out to him. He called me back the night before my plea agreement and changed my life. He told me not to accept the plea bargain because it was a horrible deal, and he would fight for me. The moment I hired Gary, the whole experience changed. Gary and his team constantly kept me updated on my case every step of the way. Within a matter of weeks, they EASILY got my DUI dropped to a civil infraction. Gary and Kathy cared about ME, they were not out for money like other lawyers. They gave me a discounted rate because of what happened with my first lawyer and genuinely tried to make the case as cheap as possible for me because I'm a student. I wish I had hired them first and not suffered through the first 3-4 months of hell from my first lawyer. Honestly, I've sat in your position scrolling through reviews, feeling scared and confused and awful about the position I was in. Believe me when I tell you that Gary and Kathy will completely change those feelings the moment you even talk to them. I felt so safe and cared for, I had a team behind me that really fought for me and took care of the whole process. I was able to focus on school and work, knowing that I was in safe hands. You honestly can't put a price on that kind of comfort when going through this difficult time. Gary and Kathy worked my case for such a low rate but if I had the funds I would have paid them much much more because they were honestly truly good people who are worth every. single. penny.

This law firm is a powerhouse that gets RESULTS. I cannot speak highly enough of them. I hired Mr Gary Springstead to defend me against 3 very serious felony drug charges. He looked at the evidence closely and was able to write up a compelling argument to the prosecutor on why my charges should be dropped, and was able to get all three felonies DROPPED to one single misdemeanor! I was just sentenced this week and did not receive a single day of jail time! Throughout the process, both Gary and his staff kept me aware of what was happening, and our court dates I was prepped thoroughly so I knew how to handle any questions.
Gary gets my highest recommendation both as a world-class attorney and as a human being.
Thank you my friend.

Hands down the best defense laywer around. I was being charged with a potential second owi that would have impacted my life severely... Losing my license for a year and loads of fines. Gary went to work for me, nailed down all the Information and got me a plea agreement. This agreement allowed me to keep my license No jail time. Without Gary no way this would

My girlfriend and I take an annual trip from California to Michigan to attend an event and meet up with some friends from across the country. Unfortunately, I ended up getting arrested while on this trip. Being that I wasn't from Michigan I took the first available attorney I could find. After being told my options were obsolete and I would spend a year in jail, I decided to see if there was anyone more willing to help me fight my case. After researching multiple criminal offense attorneys, Springstead Bartish & Borgula was always first on the list. I reached out to Mr. Springstead and after a brief consultation, I was confident he would be able to help me more than my previous attorney had. Being from California made matters more difficult to deal with and Gary did a stand up job of keeping me up to date with any information, research, evidence and any other thing I could have thought of. He was able to find discrepancies in the case that could have been detrimental to my sentencing. All in all, the outcome was more than I could have hoped for and I'm very grateful to have come across Mr. Springstead, for his determination, dedication and integrity in his practice.

Gary helped me with some trouble I got into at electric forest this year. Charged with many felonies, Gary was able to get a probationary deal worked out with the judge and keep me out of jail due to the fact I was a first time offender and I am in school. He was a huge help and I would highly recommend him to anybody in need of a criminal defense lawyer.

I found that Gary was always prepared and knowledgeable for each step of the legal process. But the highest qualification was honesty at each step, not sugar coating what could be a very difficult message.

I was arrested on December 18th and charged with an OWI and a PBT refusal. With my job I have to keep a valid class A CDL, so if I was to be charged with the OWI I would have lost my job. This is when I chose to have Gary Sprinstead defend me. When I talked to Gary and told him my story he told me he would do what ever he could to help the situation. In my situation not knowing if I was going to lose my job or not was very stressful, but Gary and his team were there to answer any questions at anytime and that was very reassuring. On the 23 of December Gary got my charges dropped to a careless driving! It only took him 5 days! I had no probation or even a hearing, just the careless driving charge. Gary Springstead saved my life, and I would recommend his services to anyone!

After having been terminated from employment over an issue related to flex time use, charges of embezzlement were filed against me. I hired Gary Springstead, based on a recommendation from an employment attorney that I was consulting with. I was very impressed by Mr. Springstead's professionalism, dedication, compassion, and knowledge of criminal law. Mr. Springstead succeeded in getting the felony embezzlement charge dismissed by the prosecutor himself before the preliminary exam to determine if there was probable cause was even held, an extremely rare occurrence. If you should ever find yourself in an unfortunate situation requiring the services of a criminal defense attorney, I highly recommend Gary Springstead!
