Seemingly minor offenses can have a huge impact on your life. While you may avoid jail, many employers and landlords will disqualify candidates who have ever been arrested for or convicted of any crime no matter how minor the offense was. If you have been charged with a misdemeanor, contact us so we can fight for your rights.
Drug crimes make up a huge percentage of arrests, and most drug charges are related to occasional personal use. While you may be given a seemingly favorable plea offer, it’s important to discuss the long-term consequences of accepting it with an attorney. You also have the right to challenge the charge with defenses such as an illegal search and seizure.
Alcohol offenses range from public intoxication to driving while under the influence. Special attention should be paid to these charges because they could result in the loss of a job or your ability to drive. Contact us if you’ve been charged with an alcohol-related offense.
