Misdemeanor Charges Are Not Minor Crimes
While not having the consequences of a felony charge, county jail sentences are possible. A criminal record can also affect your ability to pursue employment or schooling. Misdemeanor charges are anything but insignificant and carry serious penalties. Legal representation is important to help even the odds.
Our objective is to have charges dismissed or not-guilty verdicts. However, certain cases require us to pursue plea bargains and minimize the consequences you face. However, we will try cases if we cannot come to an agreement with prosecutors. You need that level of dedicated legal advocacy when the stakes are high.
