A Misdemeanor is not a Minor Offense –  You Need a Misdemeanor Lawyer

There is a tendency to think of a misdemeanor as a “Minor Offense”. THIS IS A MISTAKE. Misdemeanors include SERIOUS CRIMES with SERIOUS CONSEQUENCES such as:

  • Possession of Controlled Substances
  • Retail Fraud
  • Assault and Battery
  • Indecent Exposure
  • Animal Control Offenses
  • Domestic Assault

A misdemeanor can be punishable by up to a year in jail and fines. For many of the above crimes there are driver’s license sanctions too. Are you willing to represent yourself under these circumstances? Isn’t that a little like trying to operate on yourself for a medical condition?

A Misdemeanor Lawyer Can Help You Make An Informed Decision

What separates a professional from a lay person? Knowledge and experience. I am an experienced criminal lawyer and have handled hundreds of misdemeanor cases. I know that police and prosecutors routinely overcharge crimes. I know when the charges can be challenged, when the evidence can be challenged, and when a case should be tried. I know which prosecutors are lazy and which will try a case. I know which judges hand down harsh sentences and which judges are more lenient. On the other hand I also know when you will lose and how to work out the best possible plea agreement for you. Don’t try to represent yourself – you don’t have the depth of knowledge or experience that I do. You WILL compound your current problems. Call me. I am your best hope in a harsh and unforgiving legal system.
