Some people mistakenly believe that they aren’t facing time in jail when they have a misdemeanor charge. The fact is that many misdemeanors do come with time behind bars, so you should factor this into your defense strategy when you’re trying to decide what to do about the charges. We’re here to help you learn about your options for these cases, and we will stand beside you to help protect your interests throughout the case.
There are many things you need to consider when you’re facing a misdemeanor charge. One of these is how your future will be affected by the outcome of the case. Even though the consequences might not be as great as they would be if you were facing a felony, there will still be a mark on your criminal history if you’re convicted. This might impact your career or housing options. In some cases, it might even change what volunteer opportunities you have.
We know that this might seem like a lot to take in when the charge is just a misdemeanor. We’ll discuss your side of the matter with you and see what options we have to work with. In some cases, this might include the possibility of working out a plea deal. This should only be considered if you admit that you committed the crime.
It is always best to start working on your defense quickly when you find out you’re being charged with a crime. This gives you time to consider everything without having to rush through anything. It also gives us a chance to see what defense strategies we might employ on your behalf.
