Criminal Justice FAQs

When choosing a defense attorney, it's essential to look for experience, compassion, and a passion for justice. You want someone who is well-versed in criminal law and has successfully handled cases similar to yours. It's also important to find a lawyer you feel comfortable working with and who will prioritize your best interests every step of the way.

It all depends. Many criminal cases are resolved through a plea bargain, while others do end up going to trial. Ultimately, the decision on how to proceed will be based on the specific circumstances of your case and what is in your best interest. Your defense attorney will be able to advise you on the likelihood of your case going to trial and what steps can be taken to reach a favorable outcome. So, it's vital to have a skilled defense team on your side who can handle every aspect of the legal process, from negotiations to potential trials.

Misdemeanors are less serious offenses and include things like petty theft and minor assault. They usually carry a jail term of up to one year. Felonies, on the other hand, are more serious crimes such as murder, rape, or armed robbery. These can result in prison terms of more than one year. The specific class of felony or misdemeanor can greatly impact sentencing, so it's crucial to have a skilled defense attorney on your side.
