People may say it’s only a misdemeanor, it’s not a felony. For someone facing a misdemeanor charge, however, the circumstances can’t be downplayed. A misdemeanor conviction can still lead to a jail sentence, probation and a record.
At the Legal Advocate Group P.A., every case receives the highest degree of attention. Our attorneys recognize the magnitude of criminal charges even when the state classifies them as misdemeanors.
With our clients, we start by advising them about the difference between felonies and misdemeanors. Felonies are crimes punishable by more than a year, while misdemeanors are punishable by less than a year.
First-degree misdemeanors come with a sentence of up until a year while second-degree misdemeanors come with a sentence of up to 60 days. However, prior convictions in the same crime can upgrade a second degree misdemeanor to a first degree misdemeanor.
That’s just one of the reasons every misdemeanor needs to be addressed by skilled, experienced attorneys. Our LAG team brings a bold and aggressive approach and we aren’t intimidated by taking a case to trial. We possess trial experience on both sides, with lawyers who have previously worked as criminal prosecutors before taking on the role of defense attorney.
We use our expertise to identify a client’s legal options and then we add a degree of empathy so we can calmly explain the various possibilities.
If you find yourself facing a misdemeanor charge and refuse to view it with a light-hearted attitude, let us lend you the expertise, attention and care you rightfully deserve. It’s not just a misdemeanor.
