Misdemeanors

Although the penalties for misdemeanors are less severe than those for felonies, misdemeanor convictions can have serious ramifications on your life, reputation, and career. For this reason, our lawyers represent clients facing misdemeanor charges with the same creativity and vigor as they would if the client were facing a serious felony charge. Here are some examples of successful results we have achieved in misdemeanor cases:
