Don't let the pretty smile fool you.  After spending nearly 10 years as a Detroit police officer in both Gang Squad and Narcotics units, Attorney LaGrone knows how the system works.  From the firm's office in Lawrenceville, Georgia, she provides criminal defense and immigration representation to clients throughout the greater Atlanta metropolitan area.  She works aggressively at keeping black and brown men out of the prison system and home with their families. 

Ms. LaGrone's criminal defense client base comprises people who have been charged by the state with having committed misdemeanor or felony offenses. The types of cases that she has handled in this regard have included driving under the influence of alcohol, drug possession and distribution, theft, and assault and other violent crimes. During her career, Ms. LaGrone has been able to obtain positive results for her clients through dismissals, acquittals and the negotiation of favorable plea agreements with the prosecution. Her fellow professionals have taken note of her successful track record as well as of her high degree of ethics, and they have awarded her an "Excellent" peer review rating through AVVO.

As an undergraduate, Ms. LaGrone attended the University of Detroit Mercy, where she majored in criminal justice studies and received a Bachelor of Science.  She then spent several years as an officer with the Detroit Police Department before deciding to pursue a legal education at what was then known as the Thomas M. Cooley Law School. While she was there, Ms. LaGrone served an internship with the Wayne County Prosecutor's Office before being awarded her Juris Doctor in 2011. She is admitted to practice in Georgia and Michigan.
