What is Criminal Defense?

When you become entangled in the criminal justice system, legal representation can go a long way to protect you and your rights. Criminal cases can be broken down into felonies and misdemeanors. Felonies, sometimes referred to as “high crimes,” involve more serious charges and hold much longer sentences in comparison to misdemeanors. Misdemeanors are lesser forms of misconduct and carry less severe punishments, usually fines and or minimal prison time.

 Whether you are looking at a misdemeanor or a felony, a criminal lawyer will investigate the case and help identify ways to introduce doubt into the question of a defendant’s guilt. Based on extensive research of the evidence, our team will build a case and identify the best possible defenses to help prove the client’s innocence or lessen the sentence.
