Prosecutors hang their hats on conviction rates in major felony cases. If it’s a high-profile case, such as a murder or armed robbery, they pull out all the stops to put the “bad guys” behind bars.
At Holleman Law Firm, PLLC, we understand that this is a fight for your life. We are not here merely to plead you guilty. Attorney Mike Holleman exhausts every avenue to avoid a conviction and prison if at all possible, or to position you for lesser charges or penalties.
We represent the accused in Gulfport, Biloxi and the Mississippi Gulf Coast, on state or federal charges. Contact us immediately for a free consultation.
With prison time and a felony record at stake, criminal defense lawyer Mike Holleman thoroughly examines the evidence and aggressively challenges police reports, search warrants, witness statements and the alleged victim’s account of the crime. In 25-plus years of practice, he has defended clients on the full spectrum of violent crimes:
Assault and aggravated assault
Murder and manslaughter
Robbery or burglary
Gun crimes and felony weapon enhancements
Mr. Holleman opened his own practice in Gulfport after practicing for years with his father, noted trial lawyer Boyce Holleman. Mike’s skill and determination have led to favorable outcomes in high-stakes prosecutions. In one case, charges were dismissed against a client accused of killing his wife. He also successfully appealed the conviction of a man charged with killing a 23-month-old baby. The Mississippi Supreme Court overturned the conviction and acquitted the defendant after Mr. Holleman exposed that the prosecution had hidden key evidence favorable to his client.
It’s frightening and intimidating to be accused of a major crime, and Mike Holleman gives his clients hope and support during these dark times. He diligently prepares as if your case will go to a jury, while keeping your options open and giving you realistic counsel about the strength of the government’s case.
