“I am determined to see that every Client in my Firm has the Highest Quality Criminal Defense. Every Criminal Case is Treated as the Most Important Event our Client Will Ever Face.”
I am attorney Chuck Kronzek. My interest in founding this law firm, along with my first partner, Michael Cronkright, was that I wanted to operate a firm where we could offer each of our clients the best possible defense, the best possible attorneys and the best possible results. I am proud of what we have been able to achieve. Since we started practicing together, Mike, myself and the team have had many trial victories; too many to keep track of really. We enjoy our reputation of being thorough, intense, competent Michigan criminal defense attorneys. We love winning cases and helping clients.
At Kronzek & Cronkright, PLLC, we never stop educating ourselves, never stop learning better ways to present arguments and win cases. I make sure that all of my attorneys participate in continual ongoing legal education and training. I make sure that every criminal defense file is regularly reviewed by one of the partners in the firm.
We don’t have any small cases or unimportant clients. If you are being represented by my law firm, I will accept your call and review your case progress with you, even if another attorney in the firm is the lead attorney on the case. I meet with clients during the day, during the evenings and on weekends. I offer you my personal guarantee: If you are a client at my firm, you will be represented well. I will see to it.
