Why You Need a Lawyer

If you don’t know the full extent of your rights after being accused and head to court by yourself, you won’t be able to successfully defend yourself. Having no idea what your options are can make your case feel like a lost cause. You need an aggressive attorney with a thorough understanding of the criminal justice system and relationships built with judges to be on your side – our law firm can provide that attorney.

Felonies vs. Misdemeanors

Besides representing you and your case, we also work to educate all our clients on the legal process so they understand their options and what lies at stake.

For instance, we can define the difference between a felony and a misdemeanor. A misdemeanor is a less serious crime than a felony that can involve jail time, small fines, and temporary punishments. A felony, on the other hand, is one of the most serious crimes that come with longer jail or prison sentences, fines, and the loss of freedoms – some of them permanent.

There are various classes of misdemeanors and felonies that denote imprisonment lengths.

Misdemeanor classes include:

  • Class A misdemeanor - one year or less, but more than six months
  • Class B misdemeanor - six months or less, but more than thirty days
  • Class C misdemeanor - thirty days or less, but more than five days

Felony classes include:

  • Class A felony - life imprisonment or the death penalty
  • Class B felony - twenty-five or more years
  • Class C felony - less than twenty-five years, but more than ten years
  • Class D felony - less than ten years, but more than five years
  • Class E felony - less than five years, but more than one year

During your consultation and if we take you on as a client, we can define all of these terms and more.
