MISDEMEANOR DEFENSE LAWYER

Misdemeanor offenses carry unfavorable consequences. For a first-time offender, a conviction can mean a blemish on an otherwise clean record, as well as fines and probation. For individuals with prior convictions, it can mean intensive probation, heavy fines, and potential jail-time. It is absolutely necessary to have an attorney that understands the implications of being charged with misdemeanor offenses, and the experience to obtain a case resolution that is in your best interests. Frequently, a resolution can be negotiated that will minimize the impact on the accused, whether a first-time offender, or an individual with a prior history.
