Aurora Misdemeanor Defense Attorney
|While Misdemeanors are less serious than felony cases you can still be sent to jail as a result and it may result in a permanent criminal record. With any misdemeanor case my goal is to make sure that you do not go to jail and at the same time try to keep the case off of your permanent record.|
As you know, any conviction on your record could prevent you from obtaining employment in the future. I have been helping all types of people over the past twenty years who have made a simple mistake, doctors, attorneys, nurses, college students and working men and women. I treat all with respect and handle all of their cases personally; I will never send an inexperienced associate to handle your case.
I know how important your case is to you and will work diligently to make this process as painless as possible. In the past I have had charges dropped completely or reduced to minor traffic offenses. In other cases I have had charges dismissed after filing a pretrial motion. Of course, I have also won many other cases by having either a bench trial with a judge or a jury trial. Please take a look at the results of actual recent cases I have handled. Many times a key factor is knowing who the judge is in a particular case and avoiding those judges whom I know to be biased or unfair.
If this is your first interaction with the criminal justice system, the process can be very scary and intimidating for many people. You need an experienced attorney working on your side protecting your rights and getting you through this difficult period. I try to handle each case as if it were my own and take all steps necessary to arrive at the best possible result. I have been trying and winning cases for a long time now and I know that the key is preparation and research of all issues. In many cases I can get the case resolved without a conviction being entered against you and after two years we can have the case expunged or removed from all records.
