Mr. McCririe has spent many years in his legal career working as a criminal trial attorney, both for the prosecution and defense. While his early career was mainly spent helping the government, his current passion is for helping real everyday people with their legal problems. Mr. McCririe’s experience on the prosecution side of OWI cases has given him a unique insight into how drunk driving cases are handled by police and prosecutors. He understands the corners that police tend to cut when they are attempting to force their way in drunk driving cases. Mr. McCririe understands the importance of science behind the field sobriety tests and the alcohol breath tests that are standard in drunk driving cases.

His understanding of how a prosecutor builds their case with the assistance of the police has been key to many successful results for his clients at Grabel & Associates.

He served as the Livingston County Clerk, being appointed in 1996. Before his time as a lead prosecutor in Livingston County, Mr. McCririe worked as a city attorney for both Southfield and Lansing. He sharpened his skills as a trial attorney in these various roles, which he uses to help his present-day clients as a criminal defense attorney with Grabel & Associates.

Mr. McCririe is a Michigan native and a graduate of Brighton High School. He attended and graduated from Michigan State University with a degree in pre-law. Mr. McCririe then attended Thomas M.

Scott and Bob achieved exactly the result I was looking for. They were prompt and effective. If I ever have any other legal issues (which hopefully I don't)... I'd certainly work with them again. M. C.
Scott Grabel was kind enough to look into my situation and take his time to speak with me free of charge. Most attorneys will not do that. He gave me reassurance that I had nothing to worry about. If I am ever in need of an attorney in the future I will be calling Scott Grabel and will highly recommend him to anyone with a legal issue. G. K.
Highly recommended lawyer! Mr. Grabel is very professional and knowledgable. My case happened suddenly on Saturday, but Mr. Grabel is 24/7 on call, which was what I needed. I called on Saturday night and the front desk told me I would hear back from the lawyer shortly. Only 30mins later, I got a call from Mr. Grabel himself and he eased my anxiety quickly by explaining the situation and options I had. I knew I was in good hands. ... Z. W.
