Misdemeanor Defense

Although misdemeanor charges are relatively minor in nature, we understand they may have a major impact upon your life.  Many people facing misdemeanor charges find themselves in an unfamiliar and scary position.  They often require an added degree of attention, as they are typically unfamiliar with the process of defending against criminal charges.  If you are currently facing misdemeanor criminal charges, you likely may be having your first experience with the criminal justice system.  Our law office works with misdemeanor clients daily and welcomes the opportunity to provide your best defense and unmatched service.
