Although misdemeanor crimes are less serious than felonies, crimes of this nature should still be taken seriously. If you are arrested for a misdemeanor offense, you could still be facing serious punishments. It is important that you contact a knowledgeable Franklin criminal defense attorney from McLendon & Milligan right away after you have been arrested.
Regardless of whether this is your first arrest or you have an existing record, misdemeanors are still taken seriously in the eyes of the law. Law enforcement and prosecutors work hard to reach a conviction with any case they take on. In order to thoroughly protect your rights, you will need to hire a Franklin misdemeanor attorney to represent you.
We can investigate the details of your case to determine what evidence stands against you and whether any alternative options exist. This may include reducing your sentence, proposing an alternative to jail time, or having your case dismissed altogether.
A conviction of a misdemeanor can lead to time in jail, fines, probation, community service, and a criminal record. Having a criminal record can affect your reputation and personal relationships, as well as make it difficult for you to obtain and uphold a job, obtain housing, or be eligible for bank loans.
Depending on the severity of your charges, it is possible that a misdemeanor offense could be elevated to a felony during trial. We take the time to investigate our clients' cases to determine the best possible defense strategy to employ. You can rely on us for our strong advocacy, compassion, and aggressive representation.
