Misdemeanor & Felony Defense Counsel

Criminal acts may be classified as misdemeanors or felonies depending on the severity of penalties that may be imposed upon a defendant if he or she is convicted. While misdemeanors are less serious than felonies, they may still have life-changing consequences that can affect careers, professional licenses, and one’s freedom. A felony conviction can result in years in prison, heavy fines, and the loss of voting and firearm rights.
