About Tiffany DeBruin
For Tiffany DeBruin, the practice of law is an opportunity to “serve others and help people facing life altering consequences.”
Her passion is fighting for people who may not have the opportunity to fight for themselves, and being the voice for people who may not have a voice in the legal system.
Tiffany is a native of Ohio, and attended college and law school there before moving to Michigan with her husband. Her attention to detail and enjoyment of the potential challenges of running her own business led her to major in business at a Christian liberal arts college as an undergraduate.
However, she also had the desire to work in a profession that would allow her to live the values instilled in her through her upbringing, and knew that the practice of law lent itself to spending her days helping people.
After she graduated from Capital University Law School in Ohio, she worked for legal aid services helping people who were facing legal troubles and couldn’t afford attorneys. She also has experience representing the victims of domestic violence, and children and families encountering the Children’s Services system.
When she moved to Michigan, she decided to put her business skills to work by opening her own law firm. One of her focuses as a criminal defense attorney in Lansing is criminal defense, which she chose because she saw an opportunity to protect and preserve the rights of people accused of crimes — work she finds important and rewarding.
When representing clients, Tiffany brings a sharp attention to detail that’s necessary in criminal matters that can involve complex evidence and legal questions, including Michigan OWI charges and drug charges. She also brings perseverance and tenacity, and doesn’t back down from the fight to get the outcome that is in the best interest of her clients.
Among her other various professional affiliations, Tiffany stays up to date on the latest scientific and legal developments in the highly specialized area of OWI law to better serve her clients as a certified and active member of The Michigan Association of OWI Attorneys (MIAOWIA).
She has several years of experience working in courts in and around Lansing, including Ingham County and Clinton County, and maintains good working relationships with the clerks, prosecutors, judges, and other people involved in criminal matters. Her clients can be assured that she will always represent them in a manner that is professional while working every angle of a case to diligently defend her client’s rights.
