Comment: Tessa is unbelievable, I was getting calls from the FBI wanting to talk to me, I did not know what to do, I tried looking up the best attorneys outside of Indiana which is where I am from, because I dont trust any here. I was reading through several attorneys and I came across Tessa. I called and spoke with her we hit it off immediately, I put down a retainer, she contacted the FBI, and threw One telephone call and one email it was resolved. A heavy weight lifted off of my shoulders. It went no further than that one phone call and one email. If you need an attorney that is intelligent a straight shooter and very truthful look no further than Tessa. She will remain on speed dial. I wish her the very best.

Comment: Tessa was everything you need from a good lawyer. Accommodating (contacted her in the morning and 2 hours later she was on it), knowledgeable, calm and firm when needed. Communication with her was easy and she always answered fast. We had the best outcome possible. Can’t thank her enough.

Comment: Right off the bat Heath seemed like the kind of guy you would want defending a family member or loved one. I actually found him on google and later received a recommendation from another friend and he couldn’t have been more correct about Heath and his team! Heath was calm and confident the entire time, including when I muddied the waters a bit before hiring him. Heath swooped in to save the day and ended up being able to get a misdemeanor knocked all the way down to a 0 point civil infraction! All in all I’m very happy with the outcome and would not hesitate to recommend him again!

Comment: Attorney Mike Bartish at SBBL did an amazing thing for my son, who was facing some extremely complex and unnerving questions regarding prior legal defense decisions. We called with an urgent need for consultation, and he not only made an opening quickly, but he reviewed our story and documents thoroughly in short order and gave us exactly the frank, open, and solid advice needed to calm nerves and alleviate tension. I would not hesitate to recommend Mike to any of my friends or family that found themselves in a similar situation. Thanks again, Mike – genuinely appreciated!

Comment: Heath and his team are some of the most precise, ethical, and patient people Ive worked with in any legal situation. In addition to fully dismissing my case, they were so thoughtful throughout the arduous process of communicating with prosecution, and, when necessary, were frank enough to outline every scenario and every possible mode of attacking a given problem, instead of being dismissive or unresponsive. They were a model of what anyone would want in personal representation, and I cant thank Heath enough for his strong advice throughout.

Comment: I could not be happier with my choice to work with SBBL, specifically Heath Lynch & his team. From the beginning, Heath displayed confidence that he could get me the best possible outcome for my case, and he delivered. All-the-while managing expectations, and making sure to not deliver false hope. Heath is practical and realistic, but will fight for you every step of the way. Heath was able to get my charges brought down to a Michigan 7411, which was best-case-scenario. I will be able to go on with my life with a clear record, and able to put this behind me due to his dedication to me and my case. Could not recommend him & his team enough.

Comment: We were confronted with a situation no parent wants, false accusations of sexual harassment. But not just that, our child was 10. Our son’s story never changed, however the ‘victim’ story fluctuated. As parents who have seen a lot during career work, we were not willing to allow for an unguided allowance of the schools investigation. We searched out legal teams for this issue, to which we found to be minimal in comparison to other areas of law. After interviewing two firms, one a rabid dog, the other a well behaved guard dog, we opted for that guard dog. Tessa was amazing at explaining the process, keeping us informed of procedural irregularities or just being receptive to the nonsense put on paper by this school district. We were able to point out and complete some work on our own to keep the billable hours to what we needed Tessa to complete in regards to legal matters, but our involvement was more informational pointing out the inconsistencies of the school’s investigation. Tessa completed all needed work timely and her involvement did not extend the process, even when the school messed up and caused delay. Each person we dealt with at SBBL was courteous and kind. Payment was easy and connecting with our team was flawless! Due to the diligent work of Tessa and her team, we had the decision of Not Responsible, which was touch and go with how the school handled the investigation! I would recommend Tessa to any parent or student who needs legal counsel in relation to Title IX!

Comment: Lawyer Tessa Muir and her assistant Jess Armstrong did a wonderful job, I was being removed from ROTC for a reason I both didnt understand, and didnt think I could get out of. After over a year (My ROTC programs fault, not theirs, they were very prompt with responses) I was finally exonerated and told it was my cadres mishandling and their mistake. I ended up saving 63k so very worth it, and very appreciative of Tessa and Jess. They do great work and theyre the girls you need!

Comment: It is difficult to describe just how happy I am with this firm. To be more specific, attorney, Heath Lynch, is one of the finest attorneys I have ever met in my entire life. Heath Lynch represented me when I was falsely accused of four crimes. He was exactly what every attorney should strive to be. Not only was he professional, honest and true, but he also listens to his clients and makes them a partner. This man is one of the finest you can find. I also would like to give a big shout out to the assistant on my trial, attorney, Michaela Hamilton. She was more than impressive, and between the two of them, my life was saved. The old adage, if you need some thing done, ask a busy person, applies to Heath Lynch in a way that I cannot describe. This man believed me when no one else did, and worked tirelessly for 13 months until the trial, which resulted in a full acquittal. Heath Lynch never shines away from going to trial, making a motion or listening to his client. This was the first time in my life I ever found myself in the situation, and I can safely say that this man saved my life. If you need a great lawyer, Heath Lynch is your man. If I become even 1/3 of the attorney that he is, I will consider myself exceptionally blessed.

Comment: I worked with Mike Bartish and his staff. I cant recommend Mike enough, the level of care and advice Mike offered on my case was above and beyond what was required of a attorney. Mike was personal, empathetic, and available if I needed advice regardless of what I was dealing with.My case involved my ex trying to use the criminal courts to interfere with our upcoming custody review and keep my child away from me. Mike was not only able to remove the order of no-contact with my daughter, he was able to work out a understanding with the court and the delicate situation involving my daughter that provided the best possible outcome.Even after the case Mike offered to help after hours dealing with my ex and trying to pick up my daughter. Mike cared enough to make sure the complicated events following the case were handled correctly and fairly to ensure I would have no further issues.I cant thank Mike enough for all his help through this difficult time and greatly appropriated his level of understanding. I highly recommend Mike to anyone who needs a personable and knowledgeable attorney willing to do whatever needs to be done to care for his clients.

Comment: Exceptional law firm! My representing attorney Gary Springstead fought for me every step of the way in my case. Gary truly went above and beyond, which saved me from some serious repercussions. The interactions with the law firm were positive throughout the entire process. I was always informed/updated consistently on what was going on, and the office was always quick to respond if I had any questions. Hiring Gary Springstead was one of the best decisions I made, and I am thankful for the efforts he put into my case. I highly recommend this firm to anyone who needs an attorney to represent them.

Comment: Mr. Lynch made me feel more than comfortable from the very beginning. He spoke with much confidence, and that is what made me hire him. At the beginning, my husband was looking at a very lengthy prison sentence, and both me and my husband thought our hands were tied on more than one occasion. Once everything was said and done, there was no prison or jail time, and my husband was able to get probation. Mr. Lynch and his team are amazing, and fought hard to get the best possible outcome!! I couldnt thank Mr. Lynch more, and would be glad to recommend him to anyone I know looking for a lawyer who is confident in what he does and will fight to get them the best possible outcome!!

Comment: I am a business executive with a company that has offices through the United States, unfortunately one of our prior business deals required the expertise of Gary and his team. I hired Gary’s firm, Springstead Bartish Borgula & Lynch, PLLC and hired Gary Springstead specifically and he has been nothing short of amazing. He has past FBI experience and knows so many individuals and how the process works. Gary and his team learned about every aspect of my life and business and the situation and they worked it all out. I cannot say enough here. Hire Gary, his team will work with you and take care of it. I have worked with Gary for years now and I hope you choose him over others out there, he and his team are wroth every penny. His assistants are the BEST, they are professional, dialed in but have a great personal touch and supportive! Shout out to Tammy at his offices :)

Comment: 3 of my family members were arrested on charges from a State we dont even live in. They were false charges that could have landed each of them in prison for up to 20 years. I was a complete wreck to say the least, We knew of no attorneys in Michigan so l had to put my complete faith in this man l never met. He had my families lives in his hands. He responded to me very quickly, gave me great advice before I even hired him. He filled us in on what the bogus charges against them were and went straight to work. We never even had to go to trial and he convinced the prosecutor of my childrens innocence and got all of the charges dropped. Which is almost unheard of. I cant even begin to explain how stressful this all was for my family, and no matter what the cost, you cant put a price on your freedom. God Bless Mike Bartish and his team. I dont think l would have survived life if my child and my grandchildren were in prison, especially for a crime they DIDNT commit. If youre looking for an attorney that answers your questions takes your phone calls and genuinely cares, that will work hard for you, then Mike Bartish is your man.

Comment: Mike Bartish is an astounding attorney. He didnt just help me file paperwork to fight the CSC charges, he walked me through the process every step of the way. Although I was falsely accused, I have too much to risk in a public trial so Mike helped me weigh the options. I ended up taking a plea deal which best fit my case even when he expressed immense confidence in his preparation for the trial. Since the first minute of consultation, Mike completely understood my situation and believed in my innocence. There wasnt a single day that I felt like I should be worried about my legal representation. Some nights, I had big questions that were weighing down my mind as last as 10pm. Whenever I called, he answered. I felt as though I was his only client with the amount of attention I was given. It was incredible that even though the plea was a decent settlement, some of the last words said to me were something like, whichever option you choose, know that I will still gladly take this to trial. The plea deals offered earlier involved prison and sex offender registration. Im glad Mike was there to tell me that I shouldnt give into the prosecutors supposed final offers. He made it clear to the prosecutor that their offers were ridiculous and that he was more than ready to take this case to trial if thats all they were going to offer. Aside from the direct contact with the prosecutor (which I saw one time, thanks to Mike), he filed several motions to chip away at the prosecutors assault case. Every court date, I would start the day nervously but would walk away from the courthouse more calm than the previous day. Mike Bartish handled my case very well. Im confident that he can handle any other case just the same.

Comment: Choosing Mr. Springstead as my attorney was one of the best decisions I could have made, when I was faced with criminal allegations. Gary came highly recommended by many friends who work in the legal system and law enforcement and I now see why. He fought extremely hard for me, and took the time explain every aspect of the process. In the end he was able to bring the truth to light. I’m not sure exactly where I would be right now if I had not hired Gary to represent me. His professionalism, legal knowledge and ability to litigate a case is of the highest standard. Enough can not be said as well, for his staff. Tammy was wonderful. Prompt, caring and goes above and beyond. I would highly recommend Gary Springstead to anyone searching for the best attorney available to represent them.

Comment: In July of 2020 my husband unfortunately faced some serious charges and our lives were completely turned upside down. The first and best phone call we made was to Springstead, Bartish, Borgula and Lynch. When you hire this firm your not just hiring one attorney they are all in it together to get you the best results on your case. We were extremely fortunate to work with Gary Springstead and his assistant Tammy! From the beginning of a very complicated case they were reassuring and accommodating on all levels! When your life is hanging in the balance this is the guy you need in your corner, Gary is a monster in the courtroom and is not to be toyed with. Grateful does not even come close to how we feel when our family is still in tact and all charges were DISMISSED! I’m confident that had we retained any other attorney this would not be the outcome, so if you value your life and your freedom this firm is 100% where you need to be. Huge thank you again to Gary, Tammy and the rest of the team we appreciate you more than you could ever imagine!

Comment: I highly recommend this firm! The attorney that handled our matter was Heath Lynch. When I first called the firm to get a consultation, I was connected with an attorney who specialized in the exact area of law that we needed. I was able to speak to Heath right away and it was clear that he knew what he was doing. And guess what? He did. All of the charges were dismissed! Even though we were faced with some unforeseen issues, Heath knew exactly how to handle them.When we hire an attorney, we essentially place our fate in their hands. You want to make sure you find a firm that you can trust and an attorney that will fight for your justice. The legal assistants Mackenzie and Chasity were also incredibly helpful whenever we called the office or had an emergency. The people at this firm are very professional, yet personable and ensure that you feel comfortable working with them. They got us the outcome we wanted and I am so thankful that we trusted them with our matter.

Comment: I rarely write reviews. A service has to either be pretty bad, or done extremely well. I was so thankful that this service was top notch. Unfortunately my father had a once in a lifetime bad night, with bad choices, and a family that has never seen the likes of barely a traffic stop was now facing a possible felony with misdemeanors and jail/prison time. To say we were scared and nervous would be an understatement. After crawling the internet for criminal law lawyers in the area, we went and scheduled appointments with 3 different highly ranked lawyers, Heath Lynch being one of the 3. With some visits with the other lawyers, we chose to go with Heath. He had the skill of really putting in-depth situations and choices into laymen terms, and just simply put us at ease. This guy knows his stuff, and it’s clearly evident. He always made us calm and it was laid out at the very beginning that he was a text or phone call away if we had another question or concern. If you are reading this- that is huge, and we tested it. He passes that test with flying colors. I can’t stress that enough. In addition to Heath, his staff was always on the ball, patient, understanding and best of all, completely responsive. Heath both looks the part, talks the part, and has a presence in the court room. To wrap this up, every little step Heath explained to us beforehand happened in real life just as he had explained. I was shocked at how accurate his explanation was. My father went from facing a felony, misdemeanor and and jail time, to the eventual dismissal of the felony AND misdemeanor charges AND avoiding jail. If you are stuck in a bad situation and are looking for the lawyer to give you that confidence and take the guesswork out of things, I highly recommend Heath.

Comment: I reached out to Heath’s firm (Springstead Bartish Borgula & Lynch) after contacting several attorneys in the area and was connected with Heath Lynch. He was very friendly and knowledgeable during our free consultation. The price point was definitely middle of the road compared to other consults I had received. However Heath seemed very competent and confident in his ability to help. Turns out he was correct and the small retainer ended up being a steal for the excellent service provided.Heath was very accessible throughout the process. I loved the ability to shoot him a quick text If needed; If there were more important matters he would give me a call and explain everything in detail. I never felt lost or confused with where my case was or what was happening next.In the end Heath was able to help me avoid any criminal charges , fines , or other penalties. Obviously every situation is different and this won’t always be the case for every client. However I would definitely use Heath again in the future if I ran into any legal trouble and I’d recommend you do the same!

Comment: You wont regret hiring Gary. I was arrested and charged in Federal criminal court. I had another lawyer first who pressured me to take a deal and plead guilty. I refused because I was innocent. So I found Gary and asked him to take my case.Gary worked extremely hard on my case. Gary is not only a lawyer, but as a former FBI agent, he is also an investigator. As soon as he took over my case, he put a huge amount of his time and effort into studying and researching my case.He flew over to my area to meet me and the prosecutors several times. He also reached out to experts in the specific area and got help from them. Gary found a lot of holes in the prosecutions case and found new exculpatory evidence.Within a few months of taking my case, Gary was able to convince the AUSA to dismiss all the charges. His firm is the best and has a lot of resources with all different type of background can help any type of clients.Gary saved my life. I will recommend him to anyone.

Comment: Two life charges, Fully acquitted Thanks to attorney Heath Lynch.We made the decision to hire Mr. Lynch. The reviews here do not do justice to the level of “not messing around” that Heath and his partners are practicing. Every single step of the way, Heath not only displayed unmatched command of the facts and law involved, but also stood me back up placed me on my feet and helped me to understand that I was NOT condemned and that he would never allow us to go down without a fight. Heath commands the courtroom, exudes confidence (justly), demands fair treatment for his client, intimately gets to know the facts of your case, and as I’ve just witnessed, walks into court with both a hammer and a scalpel. We made the difficult decision to go to trial. We admittedly were worried about what we were getting for our pennies. I can tell you, from start to finish that this man is the man for the job if your life is on the line (as it usually Is when you need a lawyer). Jury deliberation took less than an hour, the decision was unanimous. Heath Lynch made sure our side was represented. I feel that he saved my life. Grace, prowess, grit, elegance, intelligence, force. Heath and his team were immaculately prepared for the biggest days of my life. I will never be able to thank them. Above all else, Heath showed critical emotional support to my family and myself when we all felt like falling down. The total package is here with Heath. I hope that our story inspires you to make the right choice with Heath Lynch.The jury deliberated for a total of 41 minutes. 41 Minutes for the rest of my life... Well worth the cost of admission. Youll know what I mean when you meet Mr. Lynch. He will be ready. I cant imagine him letting you down. Thank you Heath

Comment: They said they cant help me because my ex wife already went through legal aid so apparently I will have to pay out of pocket for a lawyer. Nobody will work pro bono for me.The people here are really nice and they sounded genuinely sympathetic to my situation. Honestly if I could afford them I would be a client. The office is clean and tidy as well.

Comment: Short review:5 out of 5 ⭐️: Outcome of Case/Sentencing2.5 of 5 ⭐️: Ease of communication with attorney4 of 5⭐️: lawyers Comprehension/understanding of case5 of 5 ⭐️: Office Staff helpfulness (Tammy)Detailed Review: (brutally honest)If you’re reading this review is probably too late to tell you not to sell drugs to an undercover officer but it’s not too late to make the right decision and hire Gary and his law firm to take on your case. I was arrested during Electric Forest 2019 for a drug offense that involved UC and a sting operation. Being from Out of state I was very concerned about the outcome of this case would be considering this wasn’t the first time I had been in trouble for similar offenses. (This Law firm was the second firm we talked to regarding our arrest.)When I reached out to this firm via Their website, Gary Springstead quickly reached out to me and only after minutes of our phone conversation I already had a good feeling about him. Gary invited us to come to meet in person at his office (even on a Saturday) and he made My friend (Co-defendant) and I feel confident and comfortable with him handling the case while we returned to California, not to mention that he only charged me 1/3 what the other firms had quoted us for representation.I started to get frustrated when trying to contact Gary to set up a time to go over important documents like police reports and PSI (Pre sentencing interview) reports to personal documents I had collected to support the case and for some reason always ended up being able to get through 1 business day before next court date. His assistant, Tammy, is very professional and friendly and does an amazing job communicating to make sure you have all the information and documents needed in a timely manner. At times it seemed My lawyer had not even looked at anything sent to him until day of court.Going into court, I knew The judge wanted a strict 30 days jail time since I have multiple priors and that was the cap on my plea deal. My lawyer couldn’t talk him down at all, and even day of I was told by Gary I was lucky and getting off easy with a plea deal of 30 days max when considering the Michigan state sentencing point system, I realistically could have been sentenced to 11-23 months with a 7 year maximum sentence. In the hour before my sentencing is when Gary finally took a look at all the pages of Documents.That was the winning combination, ALL my documents suporting my case and my lawyers good standing relationships with state officials. Gary was able to show the court that I’ve changed for the best since I voluntarily went to inpatient rehab, attended NA/AA since my arrest (7 months worth) and have current medical issues like a surgery coming up that has a lengthy recovery. Gary discussed this with the prosecutor and the judge and my case was resolved with only a large fine paid to the pure state of Michigan, NO JAIL, NO PROBATION! When it comes down to your options for Lawyers in this area, especially for Electric forest cases, Gary is your best bang for your buck. He knows all the officials and is highly respected in Oceana county court.

Comment: I had an assault case pending and part of my bond was to get an alcohol tether or remote breath test set up. i could not get any help from the probation department or the person i was suppose to contact originally. after talking with a few different attorneys i spoke to heath told him the details of my case and what i was looking for. he told me what he thought he could do and past cases he had similar to mine. Heath was at the probation office within an hour of me hiring him and my appointment to get the remote breath test set up was set for 2 hours later. he also reached out to the alleged victim who had just moved into my house and worked out a way for him to go stay somewhere else while the case went on since we had a no contact order, if he didnt do this i wouldnt have been able to stay at my own home. The alleged victim also didnt want to press charges and regretted calling the police in the first place. i was fully prepared to go to trial and felt confident with heath on my side doing so. However at the pretrial conference he laid out the facts of the case and talked the prosecutor into dropping all charges. I could not have been more pleased with my decision to hire heath. if your looking for someone to go to bat for you right away...Heath

Comment: Deciding to have Heath Lynch represent me was the best decision I could have ever made. He blew away my expectations and got my case outright dismissed! I knew from our first conversation that this guy wasnt messing around and knew how to get things done. Hes highly intelligent, confident, and knows how to get results. He also has the backing of an amazing staff that is there when you need them. What a relief to just have everything over and done with! I cant thank you enough Heath!

Comment: If you have any doubts read on....Micheal Bartish and his team are awesome! I use them to get an early release from federal probation. It was amazing the dedication they had to get the job done correctly. I had an unbelievably great job offer. It was contingent on my release from probation. Every other law firm told me that it wasn’t going to happen. I was told it would take way past the deadline for me to accept the job offer. Mike filed the paperwork and it was denied due to misinformation.. It knocked the wind out of me but that’s when I experienced first hand what this law firm was all about. Mike and his team worked hard to show the prosecutor his error and get us back before the judge. By the end of the week the Judge signed my release and I have a new dream job. Thanks so much from the bottom of my heart. Happy Holidays Mike, Chastity and team.

Comment: We were referred to Heath Lynch and his firm through a mutual friend. We had a situation that involved an environmental issue with a municipality that resulted in possible felony charges. We contacted Heath and were able to meet with him that same day. I have never been in any sort of trouble before with no charges or criminal record of any kind. After explaining everything to him, he very quickly jumped in and handled everything for us. It was a very stressful event for us knowing there was a possibility that I could end up going to prison for 2 years for something that happened that was unintentional and non-hazardous or dangerous. Within a couple of months Heath was able to resolve our situation and even got all of the charges dropped! We cant express enough our happiness and thankfulness for the incredible and professional job he did for us. We strongly recommend him and his firm to anyone!

I feel like the weight of the world has been lifted off my shoulders!

Comment: Successful First DUI charge dismissed!I hired Heath Lynch after consulting with 4 other attorneys about my first DUI charge.His expectations during our initial consultation proved true through out the duration of my case. He made no promises, but clearly stated the order of events that my case would take. We held 3-4 follow up meetings (he was graciously flexible when I was unable to meet in-person, we also opted for phone conferences).He was willing to listen to any questions or suggestions I had about my case, and stood by his approaches with clear understanding of the law and the probable behaviors of the prosecuting attorney, but also suggested alternative notions and re-appeals, based on the unique variables of my case.He was persistent (two weeks of phone tag) when contacting the witness on my police report.Chastity and Mackenzie, the legal assistants at SBBL, were extremely thorough with explanation of what was needed from me through the duration of the case. They sent digital copies of any court paper work in a timely manner. They are efficient and thorough!Thank you, Heath, Chastity, Mackenzie, and

My case took almost a year from start to finish and I was in constant communication with my attorney, Heath. He is very knowledgeable and always does what he says. Heath is great at his job and cares about his clients. If I could give him more stars I would, I highly recommend Heath and his firm.

When I contacted them and they explained their experience with defending people. After talking to Heath Lynch and his experience on the prosecuting side, I knew he was the right person for our situation. He listened to us and gave guidance as needed. I was able to leave this in his hands and l feel that our voices were heard and our rights protected as much as possible in the situation. I cant recommend this firm enough.

Comment: I had a great experience working with Heath Lynch and his team. They were very responsive and always kept me updated on the status of my case. Heath is a genuine person and he truly wants the best for his clients. I was faced with two misdemeanor charges and Heath was able to get both of them dropped leaving me with 16 community service hours. This was the best case scenario for my situation and I couldn’t be happier with how everything turned out. I initially reached out to Heath while he was on vacation. I was in need of a lawyer and time was not on my side. I called him on vacation and he answered my call with no hesitation, evaluated my case and I was able to acquire him within the next day. I am so grateful for the work Heath and his team put in to make sure I walked out with the best result possible.

Comment: On December 29th I was pulled over and charged with my first OWI. I knew I needed to find a lawyer to represent me. I was lucky enough to have Gary represent me in this case. Gary went above and beyond for me and worked super hard on my case. I was super nervous about the situation but his team and himself made me feel super confident that we were going to win this fight. After 5 months of fighting this we went to trial and the outcome of the trial was amazing. Gary fought all the way till the end and convinced the jury that I was not guilty. The jury said I was not guilty and o was completely out of the OWI. I highly recommend Gary and his team for anyone that is in a criminal case. They are super smart and know a lot about all the laws. Very impressed.

Comment: I hired Michael Bartish as my lawyer for an OWI third offense charge. He was very knowledgeable in all aspects of the law and especially with my case. He knew the ins and outs of the separate courts within the area and how the process would move forward. At any point I could reach out and Michael would respond in an appropriate manor with anything I needed. Michael and his Law-firm successfully got me through my process with the minimum charges for my offense. Also successfully got me into a program that could help reduce my charge to a lower offense moving forward. I would 100% endorse and work with Michael Bartish in the future.

Comment: My daughter is a GVSU student who was charged with a traffic offense on campus. It was a situation that was really blown out of proportion and she was charged with a misdemeanor and faced school sanctions. All of the friends and family that I spoke to about the situation were shocked at the charges, especially after reading the police report. I was out of town on business when she was charged, and I didnt realize the seriousness of the situation. Initially, I was going to consult a lawyer who was in Ottawa County, closer to home. However, after researching more about misdemeanors and their long term impact, I was greatly concerned for my daughter who is in the process of applying to graduate schools. At this point I started looking at online reviews of law firms to find a lawyer who could help my daughter. All but a couple of reviews of Springstead Bartish Borgula & Lynch were amazing. I called their firm and booked a consultation immediately.My daughter and I met with Mr. Heath Lynch for a consultation, and we were so impressed with his confidence, professionalism, and genuine concern that we hired him immediately. Neither of us had any experience with criminal proceedings, so he guided us step by step through the process. He let me know from the start that while my daughter was his client and he had to respect her confidentiality, that he would keep me informed during the process, too. Mr. Lynch met with my daughter and called her several times to prepare her for her court dates and also assisted with her school sanctions. His office staff were very prompt about sending out reminders and documentation to us via email. The process took approximately three months from start to finish.When we actually went to court, it was obvious that Mr. Lynch is a well respected counselor. We observed other attorneys at the courthouse, and we were very relieved to have Mr. Lynch assisting us. We knew we had made the right choice. There were many different outcomes that this case could have had, but we received the best possible outcome: a reduction to a civil infraction, a fine, and restitution. I know that without Mr. Lynch my daughter would have ended up with a misdemeanor charge that would have impacted her pursuit of a graduate degree and ultimately her career. Yes, this law firm is more expensive than the firm we were going to initially consult, but the quality of the representation and the outcome completely justified the cost. I highly recommend this firm, and Mr. Lynch in particular, to anyone who is facing a legal situation.

Comment: When I was charged with a misdemeanor, I immediately knew that I needed legal aid. A permanent criminal record would devastate my future academic and career plans. There were two lawyers I looked at, one of which was Mr. Lynch. The other lawyer I considered was more affordable, but had a less impressive history. I knew after my initial meeting with Mr. Lynch that he was the lawyer I was going to go with. He was incredibly professional, put together, and straight with me. Lets be clear, you dont want to bargain shop when it comes to choosing a lawyer; your future is on the line. I can honestly say that Mr. Lynch was worth every penny and more. For the months that it took to resolve my legal problems, Mr. Lynch was there every step of the way. He would consistently call, email, and text me details I needed to know, as well as checking in with me. I remember calling him in-between my classes when I had questions about school sanctions relating to my charges and he was very helpful in explaining the process to me. One time there was a miscommunication about what day we were supposed to meet to discuss my case; I showed up at his office and he didnt have a meeting with me in his schedule. Regardless, he still sat down and met with me anyway. Mr. Lynch never offered me false promises or was in anyway less than truthful with me, which I greatly appreciated. His competency was all the reassurance I needed. He was also remarkably detail oriented, remembering and bringing up personal details I had only briefly mentioned. I was so pleased when he came out of the final pretrial meeting to tell me he had gotten me a plea agreement for a civil infraction - it was the best possible outcome! I can honestly say that I would 100% recommend Mr. Lynch as a lawyer.

Comment: I hate to start off my review with such a cliché phrase. However, it must be done, and I truly cannot even begin to express the amount of gratitude and appreciation I hold for all of the help and support I had received from both Heath and his firm during this tumultuous time. The generous faces that represent this firm are all incredibly caring and professional individuals who are not doing their job primarily for the money. I urge you to take that initial step to contact this firm, because upon the first few conversations you have with them, you will begin to realize that they are people who genuinely care about any legal plight you are currently undergoing. I made a terrible mistake that had me facing felony charges that eventually dropped to misdemeanors before the pre-trial conference, and at this point, all I was hoping for was no jail time. Unfortunately, my court date had to be rescheduled 2 times due to scheduling conflicts and the death of my mother, and I can honestly say that Chasity, the firms legal assistant, was very prompt at notifying me and handling these issues with the utmost care. And I bring this up to demonstrate that during this incredibly rough time, both Heath and Chasity took the time to send me words of comfort to make sure I was doing okay while also contacting the court to reschedule. During all of this, Heath was very supportive and responsive in making sure I understood the whole process and what everything entailed. He reassured me that he would make sure to fight for no jail time. In a nutshell, my case had incredibly positive results that resolved with one charge dismissed, some fines, and one year of probation where upon successful completion, the second charged dismissed as well. If you need legal help, please contact them because they will take their time to understand your situation and fight for you. Without Heath, there is no way my case would have resulted in the outcome that it did, and I am eternally grateful. Thank you!

Comment: Appreciation and thanks are an understatement for the work that Attorney Heath Lynch did on my behalf. I was faced with a felony charge that was unequivocally false in its basis, and Atty Lynch went to work immediately in proving the prosecuting party submitted their charge without merit. Not only did the charges fall flat and get finished in federal court, I was able to continue living my life without fear of retaliation from the persons who falsely charged me. Thank you Atty Lynch for your work, and I will easily refer your services to anyone who may come across a need for your services!!!

Comment: Heath is an amazing attorney. I was facing 2 charges and I have a colorful past. I was facing charges in a jurisdiction that usually gives max penalties. Heath and his team got the biggest charge completely dropped and i was ok with paying a very small fine(which was my idea). He was fully prepared to go to trial but he was able to get them dropped prior to trial. I fully recommend Heath Lynch. He knows his work and has been available by cell whenever I had a question. Most attorneys get your money and disappear. It felt great and reassured to have an attorney and lawfirm to fully commit and care about their client. I wish i could give more than 5 stars.Edit: I forgot to add i was facing 3 bond violations after my charges (dont recommend to do so) but I was represented by Heath and went home with a warning.

Unfortunately for me, the prosecutor wasnt budging from her decision to go to trial. Although Heath had tried in several meetings to try and have some kind of resolution to this case. He is a fantastic attorney that really tries to help you any legal way possible. I recommend Heath and his firm to help you.

He stood up and was an encouragement for our family and our son. We searched for hours for a lawyer with experience in opposition to the Me movement and an advocate for the accused.

Comment: In April of 2018 my son was involved in an accident in which resulted in him facing a Misdemeanor. We knew in our hearts that the charge was not warranted for what he had done and knew we needed a lawyer. I contacted several lawyers in the area and they all told me he would need to settle with probation at the very least and honestly just didnt seem like they cared 2 cents to help in such a case. I was starting to lose hope when I came across Health Lynch and the firm at Springstead, Bartish & Lynch. I called though and spoke with Health for a good 30 minutes and knew that he was compassionate, dedicated and sincere about helping his clients achieve the best possible results. He makes sure to let you know that you can contact him at anytime with any questions you have and never wants you to feel as if you are alone in the whole process. Throughout the days leading up to the court date we stayed in contact with not only him but Chasity in the office, as well. She too, was extremely caring and friendly and was also readily available if you needed to speak with him someone. In the end Health, got our son the best possible outcome - CASE DISMISSED!! We are ever so thankful for Health and his team and would highly recommend to everyone!!

Comment: High praise for attorneys is sometimes rare- but Gary Springstead stands apart from other lawyers not only in West Michigan but the state as a whole in many meaningful ways. It was refreshing and encouraging working with Gary as he handled my difficult case which had my career on the line. He worked tirelessly to get all the right witnesses and evidence on board and ready for trial in a case that many other lawyers I had consulted with said a dismissal was not possible. His personal attention to my case allowed me to be confident in the lawyer that I had selected to represent me against the State charges. In the end Gary got the charge dismissed. I would like to thank Gary and his whole team for the unbelievable representation of me and the outcome that ultimately cleared my name from these false allegations. Do not hesitate to allow the lawyers at Springstead Bartish Borgula & Lynch to represent you, as they come highly recommend from many people I had spoken to and now by myself.

Comment: At 11 years old. I was WRONGFULLY convicted of a sex offense that ruined the next 20 years of my life as it was a permanent offense in the state of Michigan. I had lost all hope. Then one day I got a call from Mike Bartish saying my mom had filled him in on my situation. Mike went WAY out of his way, staying up to the wee hours of the morning to take my calls, and help me work on my case (for WAY less than he should have charged) and for the first time since my trial, I had hope. In less than 2 months, I no longer have a felony on my record, and do not have to register as a sex offender, that I never really was. The words THANK YOU, will never express my gratitude. You gave me a chance to be a great father, husband, and man, I wont ruin this chance.

Comment: As Mr. Heath Lynch will probably tell you, he regularly meets his clients on one of the worst days of their life. This was certainly true in my case. I stood accused of a violent felony and was facing years in prison. Heath sat with me, took the time to understand the intricacies of my legal situation and immediately got to work pursuing several avenues of defense. As a former Federal prosecutor, Heath possessed a unique insight into not only how to properly mount a defense but into the actions of the prosecution as well. This served to make me feel much more reassured and confident as time and again, one situation after another played out exactly as he predicted it would. Heath mounted a rigorous pre-trial defense, while keeping me well-informed as to his strategy, progress, and likely counter-moves of the prosecution. At every stage of the process I was presented with options and, more importantly, explanations of those options and the consequences thereof. He exuded confidence and tranquility both in the courtroom and outside of it; had we gone to a jury trial instead of the plea deal route that I requested, he would have made a daunting opponent for the State.Six months later, my felony charge had been reduced to a misdemeanor and instead of facing years in prison I had a maximum possible sentence of 93 days. That alone would have been a huge victory, but Heath wasnt done just yet. As we entered the endgame stage of the case, Heath was able to wrangle a plea deal that not only would have been unthinkable at the onset of my case, but also protected me from the possibility of a civil lawsuit in the same matter. By the time we were finished, I walked away from the courtroom with a light probation sentence owing mostly to Heaths expertise and knowledge of the criminal justice system.I cant imagine having to try to navigate the waters of the criminal justice system unaided by someone such as Heath; he was the Virgil to my Dante and helped me to escape the inferno of what could easily have been a life-ruining matter. Talk to him; retain him; for me it was the best decisions I could have made, right on the heels of some of the worst decisions of my life.

Comment: I had to write a quick review for Heath Lynch and his support staff. I was looking for a reputable attorney in Grand Rapids and found Springstead, Bartish & Borgula Law PLLC and was quickly connected with Heath. We hit it off and he took down all necessary information to get the ball rolling to defend my case. He was incredibly diligent, detail-oriented and did exactly what he said he would. He made the calls, found information I could not and most importantly I was able to see to my personal obligations knowing he was handling things properly. Success follows hard work and my family was very thankful to have Heath and his support staff by our side. I can’t say thanks enough, well worth the money for his experience covering a wide spectrum of law.

Comment: I needed a lawyer for my brother. He suffers from PSTD, which had gone untreated for a while, and lead him to have legal issues. Our entire family lives in Texas. We have never been to Michigan, so I had no idea where to start. After calling several law offices and basically feeling hopeless, I said a prayer and chose Mikes number. Chasity took my call and was beyond helpful . She was a blessing. She listened, calmed me down and was extremely helpful. Words will never express how she helped me during this process. She assured me Mike would help me and if he couldnt, he would make sure he referred me to the right person. She was right. From day 1 till the end, Mike went above and beyond in helping us and even took calls/messages at any hour. He helped our family during a difficult time. He encouraged my brother to take the steps needed to address his underlying issue for his recovery. During this difficult time, hiring Mike and his staff was the best thing I couldve done. Our results couldnt have been better. My brother has a second chance to live a good life. For that I will always be grateful. Thank you Mike and Chasity. May God bless you always.

Comment: I retained Gary Springstead for a case pending out in Oceana County. From the start Gary informed me how he plans on taking the case on. He kept me informed through out the case, answered all of my questions personally and made me feel like he was fighting for a family member. On the day of my sentencing, due to a very discriminatory presentence investigation from my probation officer the judge was stern on giving me time in jail. With successful negotiations and mitigations with the judge and prosecutor he help an innocent man walk free.

Comment: I hired Mike to represent me when facing charges in Michigan that related and incident that occurred when I was traveling there on business. Mike believed that he could have me avoid returning to Michigan for court and that he could successfully have my charges reduced to the minimum which was a careless driving ticket in my case. Mike delivered on his word as he executed his plan for my case flawlessly. I would highly recommend Mike Bartish to anyone who was looking for legal representation in Michigan.

Comment: I was charged with Conspiracy to Commit Murder- yeah....pretty serious!! My family sought out Gary Springstead after another lawyer told them to Let me sit in jail because it will count as time served! Upon meeting Gary (while sitting in jail), he looked over the evidence, listened to what I had to say and believed me and in my innocence. Gary went to battle... Sleeves rolled up ready to fight! And fight he did! To watch this man in a courtroom is impressive! He had the case dismissed- all charges dropped! Through the appeal, chargers were resurfaced and I was looking at going to trial. Weeks before the trial, Gary was able to produce evidence that the man accusing me of these allegations was lying. He then had charges placed against the accuser! Through the almost 3 years of this, Gary and his staff went above and beyond! Taking the time to talk to my wife and family, answering every question and concern. He became part of the family! Gary saved my life.... There are never enough words to thank him for everything he has done, and most of all, believing in me!If you are reading this, its because you or a family member needs help. Stop your search right now and call! You wont regret the results. Thank you again Gary.... I owe you my life sir!

Comment: I had a court appointed attorney that basically told me to roll over and accept what the prosecutor offered. Being I did not think I was in the wrong my wife searched the internet for reviews on trial lawyer. We found Gary and it was the best find we could have imagined. He was AWESOME. Not only did he fight for me but he believed in me. He went above and beyond what I expected. If you need honest yet hard fought representation I cant think of anyone better.

Comment: Heath Lynch was my sons attorney for his OWI and he was top notch. He was both professional and personal. Our first conversation he gave us his private cell phone number and said we could text anytime with any questions we had. And we did.Not only did he represent my son but he allowed this mama bear call or text whenever I needed to.He was quick to reply and was always there when we needed him.I feel like he’s part of our family now.He did a great job and even the judge told my son that. I’m glad it’s all over and I wish nothing but the best for Heath and his team and staff of secretaries.Five stars all the way!!!Thank you again Heath!!

Comment: I callled them in just a few hours Heath called me back . We talked About my ccw case . He didn’t judge me at all . Once I explained the case he took no time at all to get started . If I txted with a question he got back to me that day or his assistant emailed me ASAP or once the court contacted them . By far the best law firm to hire . When sentencing came around he was able to get my fines lowered and fines and court coast no payments for me are a fair monthly payment. I will put it like this you get what you pay for and Heath Lynch went the extra mile . If I ever have a problem in Michigan or need a lawyers advice for Michigan laws. I’ll be calling Heath or sending my friends and family his way .

Comment: Very good communication and accessibility. Other attorneys that I have dealt with were hard to get a hold of most of the time and would take days to respond. Attorney Heath Lynch kept me up to date on everything and even gave me his cell number. The staff in the office are very polite and eager to help with anything you need as well. While you may hesitate at fees thinking you can get a better deal, more than likely you will regret not going with these guys. I have started with a cheeper retainer for a different attorney but ended at the same cost with very poor results. Heath did his best to look at every angle and patiently listened to all my concerns. He was very honest with everything we addressed. Overall, ended well and I am very happy I chose this firm.

Comment: Heath Lynch was me and my fiances lawyer and it didnt look good for us. Everything was going against us....We didnt have much hope and every other lawyer office we called, we got thrown dollar amounts that were outrageous before they even heard any of the case. But Mr. Lynch listened from the first phone call through the last. Not only did he make me feel that he was invested ,he made me feel that he was knowledgeable at a level that no other lawyer could compete. He is an amazing lawyer and he has many connections within the system that Im sure other Lawyers do not have. These professional connections acquaintances ,friendships ,whatever you want to call them, allows him to make Headway where other lawyers cannot. Like I said, my fiance was looking at years and Mr. Lynch got him 18 months. He was kind ,not judgemental in any way of our situation. I could not have picked a better lawyer. His prior experience being a federal prosecutor is just one of the many qualities that makes him such an amazing defense attorney. When it comes to criminal cases Heath Lynch is the lawyer that you want. My family is so thankful for him I can barely put it into words. Not just him either, his entire office was wonderful. Everyone was kind, communicative and even people in his office knew who I was when I walked in. People I had never met. If anybody is unsure about which lawyer or which office to choose.. choose Heath Lynch. I know you wont be disappointed. Not every case turns out great but hes will fight for you with everything he has.

Comment: 2 FELONY CHARGES: 15 YEARS MAXGary and his legal team are incredible. Gary specifically was very involved and personal and really went to battle for me. I was facing very serious felony charges for assault and looking at a maximum of 15 years. He and his team fought hard on my behalf and managed to get both felony charges dismissed and a plea agreement of misdemeanor charges with a maximum of 30 days, of wich I was sentenced to 21 days to be served on weekends. I was not only able to avoid the two felonies, but I was able to keep my job and my life. I cant thank him and his team enough!Gary! Hes Da Man!

Thanks to gary and his legal team, my case was plead down to the lowest possible charge and basically walked away with a slap on the wrist and some fines!! I would highly recommend this law firm in any circumstances, but especially an OWI charge. Thanks again to all of the Springstead legal team for making this hard time as easy as possible.

Comment: 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, Ive 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 thats 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 didnt 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 cant 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.

Comment: 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.

Comment: 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 have been possible. Definitely saved my life.

Comment: I was charged with a very serious crime that could have impacted my future detrimentally. I was unsure which criminal lawyer to contact as I had no experience working with lawyers in the past. However, I did my research and found Gary Springstead and his team. I felt like Gary and his entire legal team always kept me in the loop as far as what was going on with my case; I was able to have access to any new information/evidence that was presented to him. I was also able to contact Gary via my phone or email at any time if I had any questions or concerns about what was going on and he always responded in a timely manner. I felt like Gary was approachable and direct with what was going on. The best part of working with Gary was that I received absolutely no jail time or probation once my case was concluded. In addition, the other thing that was imperative to me was how I was in control of making all of the decisions in regard to my case. Gary did not make any decisions without consulting me first because he wanted to ensure that I was comfortable with the direction that we were going in. I recommend Gary Springstead and his legal team to anybody that is facing a difficult criminal situation in their life currently.

Comment: Mike Bartish and Gary Springstead are the BEST!! I called and left a message to ask them about their services at about 10 p.m. and my call was returned by 9 a.m. the very next day. I was so relieved to hear the sincere concern and empathy for my case. That is what makes them special! Mike and Gary are both very heartfelt individuals and will do what ever it takes to assist you with your needs. In my case, I was needed someone who would be willing to go the extra mile and not to fear the judge involved. The judge we were dealing with is very difficult to come to any agreements with. Mike Bartish was very real with the judge and spoke about being humans and deserving another chance. The judge listened to him as he would when discussing a friend or family member.I am so incredibly thankful I found them online and made the call. I will never use another legal service for anything. They are stuck with me for life!!

Comment: I was pulled over for window tint in Newaygo county north west of Grant MI in mid August and arrested for a DUI. At the time I currently had a bench warrant out for a DUI in Oakland county. My lawyer in Oakland county contacted Gary and together they devised a plan to keep me out of jail & with minimal penalties. I was skeptic at first if they would be able to make good on the best case scenarios they described, however during the pre to final sentencing Gary was able to adjust the court hearing dates and my requirements to be there to help my other case in Oakland county. I called him 2 weeks before my sentencing for my other DUI and he was able to move my court date up to accommodate my sentencing. When I arrived for final sentencing I was worried that I might be facing possible jail time and probation in Newaygo but Gary was able to persuade the judge to let me off with nothing more then paying my fines and putting my vehicle on lock down for 90 days. I highly recommend Gary if you are in any type of trouble in north western Michigan, Gary Springstead is a life saver!

Comment: This guy really knows what he is doing. With 15 years of experience in law, that is unsurprising. When I made the first phone call to his office to get a consultation, he dropped a lot of great points on how he could beat my case and why I should go with his firm. At first, they seemed too good to be true and I was suspicious of his points of defense, as I thought he was just trying to sell me on his service but he proved everything he said in the initial consultation as the case progressed. I urge you to at least give him a call for the consultation (particularly if your case is from Electric Forest or a similar event as I know personally that he has won many cases originated from there). He proved his brilliance when he wrote an unbelievably well-written motion to suppress. It was absolutely full of quote after quote, reference after reference. It honestly boggles my mind how he was able to to combine so many relevant sources into one paper. On top of all of his professional qualifications, he is an incredibly understanding person, which is a hard quality to find in most lawyers. He is in the business to help people with a second chance, not for the money.
