Attorney Carl Jordan brings experience, personal attention and a commitment to minimize the impact of any criminal charge for every client.
While every person charged with a crime in the United States is presumed innocent until proven guilty, from the moment you are charged, you need someone to protect your rights. Taking away your freedom and jeopardizing your future employment opportunities and many other things you take for granted, are what police, detectives and prosecutors want to do. They want you to make a mistake so they can hold it against you and get a conviction. Don't take a chance. Hiring an experienced attorney who practices criminal law exclusively is the only way to get the best possible outcome in your criminal incident.
Carl Jordan provides expert criminal defense for individuals charged with crimes. He aggressively defends the rights of clients, working diligently to provide the best possible outcome for every criminal case. He has over 20 years of experience as a criminal defense attorney, as well as, experience as an assistant prosecutor in Wisconsin and Wayne County Michigan. He is smart, aggressive, passionate and bold.
Mr. Jordan spent the early years of his law career working for the State of Wisconsin as an Assistant Attorney General and as an Assistant District Attorney. From there, he moved to Michigan where he served the County of Wayne for more than two years as an Assistant Prosecutor. During his tenure at the Wayne County Prosecutor’s office, he handled hundreds of criminal cases at both the pre-trial and trial stages. He also practiced corporate and criminal law at Lewis and Munday, P.C. and Hettinger and Hettinger, P.C.
In 2003, Attorney Jordan established the Carl Jordan Law Firm and his practice is devoted to criminal defense law. Since then, he has been a winning force for his clients in court. He has defended clients accused of everything from misdemeanors to capital felonies.
He received a Bachelor of Arts degree in History from Hampton University in Hampton, Virginia in 1989 and his Juris Doctor degree from the University of Wisconsin Madison in 1994.
Married with one child, Mr. Jordan enjoys youth mentoring through volunteer public speaking at churches and schools throughout the Detroit Metropolitan area.
For my clients there is no such thing as a minor criminal charge. I know that any criminal conviction can have serious consequences on your job, your home life and your future. As a criminal defense attorney with more than two decades of experience, I have seen this first hand.
During my time as a prosecutor, I was deeply troubled by the damage a criminal conviction can have on an individual and his or her family. That is why I chose to go into private practice as a criminal defense attorney after leaving the prosecutor's office. I am committed to providing passionate, effective and aggressive representation for anyone charged with a crime.
