Frank D. Eaman, PLLC, provides representation to individuals, corporations, and other businesses that face criminal liability. Representation is provided in almost every type of criminal investigation or charge. Both Mr. Eaman and Ms. Gabbara provide representation in criminal cases, felony and misdemeanors, in state and federal court.
Mr. Eaman has tried many long, complex, and high-publicity jury trials both in state and federal courts – trials of four months, three months, six weeks, and many trials of lesser duration. Ms. Gabbara has assisted Mr. Eaman in many complex state and federal criminal cases, and directly assisted in several trials. Both Mr. Eaman and Ms. Gabbara have engaged in plea-bargaining, when appropriate, to obtain advantageous outcomes for their clients.
Mr. Eaman and Ms. Gabbara not only try cases for their clients, they file appeals if the client is convicted, and also appeal cases where clients were represented by other lawyers at trial. Since Mr. Eaman has testified as an expert for other attorneys in cases where clients were provided with ineffective assistance of counsel, he has often spotted the mistakes of other lawyers at trial and raised claims of ineffective assistance of counsel on appeal. Ms. Gabbara has assisted in the preparation of an appeal brief in a recent case that resulted in a winning decision in the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals. (See United States v. Qin, in Mr. Eaman’s resume) Mr. Eaman has been writing appeals briefs since he was in law school and has argued countless times before the Michigan Court of Appeals, the Michigan Supreme Court, and United States Court of Appeals in the Sixth Circuit. He also represented a client in the Second Circuit, in New York.
Frank D. Eaman PLLC also files petitions for habeas corpus in federal court, challenging both state and federal convictions. The rules governing the filing of habeas corpus petitions are very complex, but Mr. Eaman is familiar with the rules. You have a short time period to file a petition for habeas corpus, and if you think you or a loved one needs to file a petition for habeas corpus, contact Frank D. Eaman PLLC as soon as possible.
Mr. Eaman also provides services to attorneys in assisting them in trial preparation for criminal cases, especially where the charges are criminal sexual conduct. For information on these services, please see Trial Preparation for Attorneys.
Please remember, in every case, state or federal, trial or appeal, or habeas corpus, it is an advantage for you to obtain competent legal representation as early as possible. The earlier we are involved in your case, the more likely we can provide valuable assistance to obtain the result you want.
