We won’t close your case until we’ve done everything possible to ensure a fair and just ruling.
Possible Consequences of a Criminal Conviction
When you are first accused of a crime, it may become apparent rather quickly that you need to protect yourself from being convicted. However, the exact penalties may remain unknown until the judge reads your sentence. You should realize that even nonviolent misdemeanors could put a black mark on your criminal record, potentially with long-term ramifications.
Here are some of the penalties you could face, from both the court and your peers:
- Months or years in prison
- Thousands of dollars in fines and court fees
- Hours of community service
- Revocation of your driver’s license
- Destruction of your social reputation
- Difficulty applying for jobs
When we see your case, we can give you an idea of what penalties you may face if you are convicted. We can also take immediate steps to counter the prosecution and build a solid defense to help minimize your sentence.
