Felonies & Violent Crimes

Protecting Your Rights

A felony charge is as serious as it gets. Whereas a misdemeanor can bring about fines and minimal penalties, the consequences of a felony charge are far more severe. Depending on the crime, repercussions can include extended prison stays and, in drastic cases, even the death penalty.

There’s a lot riding on your defense. In addition to the known and devastating potential punishments for felonies and violent crimes, there are other collateral consequences. Such repercussions can jeopardize firearm rights, limit employment opportunities and put restrictions on other freedoms. For example, certain sex crime convictions could mean having to register as an offender in your area of residence. Domestic violence charges could lose you custody of your children, and put heavy restrictions on visitation. The proper defense is crucial in ensuring your rights. It is a long and intense process. Our experienced attorneys will represent you and handle your case with the utmost professionalism.
