Misdemeanor Criminal Defense
The most important difference between felony and misdemeanor charges is that a conviction for a misdemeanor generally cannot result in more than a year behind bars. However, it is still possible to spend up to a year in jail, so misdemeanor charges must be taken seriously. Our criminal defense lawyers certainly do. We will mount a vigorous defense on your behalf to protect your rights and give you the best chance possible of keeping your freedom.
