Although misdemeanors are less serious than felonies, the outcome may seriously impact your future. Convictions for certain misdemeanors may result in the loss of your driver’s license, gun rights, financial aid for school, deportation if you are not a U.S. citizen and perhaps even job loss. To avoid having a misdemeanor limit your future opportunities, you need to hire a skilled aggressive experienced criminal defense attorney to fight for your rights and for a favorable outcome for you.
The good news is that if you have no criminal history there are many options for resolving your misdemeanor case without having a conviction on your record. Many jurisdictions offer diversion programs for many types of cases, including some domestic violence cases. Even if you have something on your criminal history you may still be eligible for first-offender treatment under one of two statutes available to first-time offenders: The general First-Offender Statute and the Conditional Discharge Statute for first-time drug offenders.
If you are charged with DUI, a high and aggravated misdemeanor, or if you already have a criminal history, you must act quickly to retain an aggressive experienced criminal defense attorney to level the playing field and ensure that you can pursue the best possible outcome for your situation.
