A criminal defense lawyer can provide you with legal advice and skilled representation if you have been charged with a misdemeanor, felony or federal offense. This includes cases involving grand theft, arson, hate crime, assault & battery, bribery, child pornography, child molestation, computer crimes, white collar crimes, federal crimes, domestic violence, drunk in public, embezzlement, extortion, forgery, fraud crimes, insider trading, manslaughter, murder/homicide, public corruption, RICO, tax evasion and weapons charges, as well as juvenile cases, and drug cases.
A criminal case conviction can result in various types of penalties depending on the facts of the case. While probation may be ordered by the court for first-time misdemeanor offenders, repeat offenders and individuals charged with a felony offense will most likely be incarcerated and required to pay heavy fines. Sentencing can also include restitution and some form of counseling. In certain cases, a person will lose their driving privileges and their assets will be seized.
