There are many types of criminal offenses that are charged as a misdemeanor. Even though this designation is less serious than a felony offense, it is a serious matter. A misdemeanor conviction can have heavy consequence. Many can result in a loss of driving privileges or a life-long obligation to admit convictions of theft or dishonesty on employment applications. Time spent incarcerated is a life-changing situation, and if you have been arrested and charged with a misdemeanor, it is strongly advised that you contact a lawyer to protect your rights. Never take chances with misdemeanor charges, no matter how minor they may appear.
Felony crimes are the most serious criminal offenses a person can commit, and warrant strict legal penalties. An experienced felony crimes lawyer can evaluate your case and discuss your options, the potential penalties you may face, and an effective defense strategy.
Felony charges are not something to take lightly. In fact, the moment you are even accused of committing a felony crime should be the moment you contact a knowledgeable and skilled felony crimes attorney. A felony conviction can result in lengthy prison sentences, probation, heavy fines, restitution to the victim(s), community service, counseling/rehabilitation, loss of many rights¸ and a mark on your permanent record.
