Here’s What You Need to Know.

  • Questions

  • What makes a crime a felony?

    Answer

    Crimes can be categorized in many ways, including misdemeanors or felonies. In the most general sense, felonies are typically thought of as “true” crimes and are often violent in nature.

  • Can a felony be reduced to a misdemeanor?

    Answer

    Absolutely. Because there are many factors that prosecutors and judges will assess in a case and its charges, working with a lawyer can greatly increase your chances of a charge reduction.

    Remember your rights. It is highly encouraged that you immediately call our defense lawyer. We can help make sure investigators do not overstep any boundaries.

  • I’ve been arrested. What happens next?

    Answer

    After an arrest, charges may be filed against you. You will then have the opportunity to enter a plea (not guilty, guilty, or no contest). If applicable, bail may be set for your release.

  • Possible Case Outcomes

    Charges Reduced

    There may be a chance that you can get your charges reduced to a misdemeanor, depending upon circumstances with what exactly happened.
