Developing a successful defense strategy is about experience, tenacity and skill. Reducing a felony to a misdemeanor is in itself a victory.

Felony Offenses

The circumstances of your arrest, as well as your criminal history, if any, can cause you to be charged with a felony offense for the same conduct that would be a misdemeanor in another case. Our experience gives us the leverage you need in negotiating with the prosecution. We have represented clients in felony and misdemeanor cases involving drug offenses, sex crimes, white collar crimes, DUI and more.
