We Handle Misdemeanor & Felony Criminal Cases

Like misdemeanors, felonies, too, are classified on a spectrum based on the seriousness of the crime. Any felony convictions you receive will likely continue to impact your life even after you complete any associated sentence – from denied admission to higher education institutions, being barred from federal benefits such as voting, or being turned down for other opportunities in life. You can also lose the right to own firearms or procure to hold certain professional licenses.
