Criminal Defense

Being charged with a crime, whether a simple misdemeanor or more serious felony, is life-changing. You have to spend time and money defending yourself. Your reputation suffers and if you are a divorced parent, or in the process of getting a divorce, child custody and visitation may be in jeopardy.

The consequences of a conviction vary depending on the charge. A misdemeanor conviction may mean up to a year in jail with a substantial fine. A felony conviction can carry hefty fines and many years in prison, perhaps even life. You need the assistance of a Treasure Coast criminal defense attorney or a Ft. Pierce criminal defense lawyer.
