If you have been charged with a misdemeanor it is critical that you have an experienced criminal defense lawyer to represent you. While a misdemeanor conviction will not be as damaging on your record as a felony, the conviction may damage your reputation, result in the suspension of your driver’s license, jeopardize your professional license, result in a revocation of your security clearance and adversely affect your employment. In addition, you could still go to jail, be placed on community control (probation), placed under house arrest and fined. Therefore, a misdemeanor charge is nothing to mess around with.
The criminal defense attorneys at the Brannon Law Firm have successfully defended clients against all types of misdemeanor crimes including, but not limited to the following:
- Assault and/or Domestic Violence
- Minor Drug Crimes and Drug Paraphernalia
- OVI / DUI and other alcohol related offenses
- Petty Theft & Shoplifting
- Disorderly Conduct
- Underage Possession of Alcohol and Public Intoxication
- Prostitution and Solicitation
Most people that are charged with a misdemeanor offense are unaware of potential defenses and alternative resolutions (such as diversion programs) which can result in a dismissal of the charges. There may also be issues with the admissibility or reliability of the evidence which can lead to a dismissal of the charges. A good criminal defense attorney will determine which defenses will provide the most favorable outcome for your situation.
