Paul Jarboe, of Jarboe & Pfeil Attorneys in Traverse City, has filed to take over as Clarence Gomery's defense attorney.
Clarence Gomery, of Gomery and Associates, was arraigned Monday on a felony charge of homicide-solicitation of murder.
"Mr. Gomery has been a well-respected member of this legal community for over 20 years." says Paul Jarboe. "He has served the citizens of both Grand Traverse and Leelanau Counties as an assistant and elected prosecuting attorney, and has helped hundreds, if not thousands, of local citizens in his distinguished private law practice."
"Mr. Gomery deserves the same rights and courtesies that are afforded to all individuals in our criminal justice system," says Jarboe.
