Felony or Misdemeanor?

Crimes are classified in two main categories: felonies and misdemeanors. Felonies are punishable by a year or more in prison (e.g., armed robbery, murder, drug manufacturing). Misdemeanors are generally punishable by less than a year in prison (e.g., theft, repeat DUI, simple assault). Prosecutors like to stack charges so while you may be guilty of one crime, it's common to find yourself charged with five or six other crimes. Each of those can add time to your sentence.

Administrative Hearings

In addition to defense in criminal trials, we also help clients facing administrative hearings, which can result in the loss of a drivers' license or serious fines.

Expungment of Criminal Records

A criminal record – even a simple arrest record – can follow you for the rest of your life. We help people with expungment of criminal records and sealing of criminal records. This means no one will be able to see your arrest or your record. This option is not available for every crime. If you are wondering if this is an option in your case, meet with one of our attorneys and we will review your record.
