Misdemeanor Law

We defend professionals charged with crimes against the big, bad, prosecutor to help them maintain their licenses and livelihood. There are several types of crimes but mainly three categories: felony, misdemeanor, and traffic. A crime is a violation of a statute. A statute is a written law passed by a legislative body. A conviction is a formal declaration that someone is guilty of a criminal offense, made by the verdict of a jury or the decision of a judge in a court of law. Convictions are life changing. Depending on the conviction, the convicted person may not be able to obtain employment, housing, or the charge can remain on their record, permanently.  Our attorneys are experienced with all misdemeanor charges and can assist you.
