Felonies are the most serious of all crimes in criminal law. If accused of one, you are almost always facing a prison sentence of one year or more. The most serious felony can lead to a sentence of death. Due to the serious nature of these crimes and the permanent blemish they place on your criminal history, it’s vital to get a lawyer who knows how to aggressively defend you against a felony charge.
The realm of felony law is an expansive one and a novice lawyer isn’t going to know how to handle all of the complications of the charges. Our lawyers have over 50 years of experience defending our clients against felony charges. With a 99% success rate, you can bank on us defending your honor and your freedom through each and every stage of your case.
Felonies are often violent crimes but they don’t have to be violent to be considered a felony. For example, there are 2,000,000 drug violations each and every year that are felonies. This is by far the most common of all felony charges so if you’re facing heroin, cocaine, or meth charges, you’re likely up against a felony, even if it’s a first offense.
Property crimes are another common category of felony. Arson, burglary, larceny, and car theft are common property crimes that result in felony charges. We’ve been defending clients against charges like these since we began our legal careers. We’re passionate about the work we do and go into every case with the mentality that there’s something lurking within the details which will enable us to have a case dismissed. In the rare instance we can’t get a case dismissed, we go to work on getting charges reduced to something less than a felony. In the event, we can’t get things reduced to a felony, it’s our job to take things all the way to trial and show the court why you’re not deserving of the felony charges against you.
Other common felonies include crimes in categories like assault, vandalism, domestic violence, and forgery. Crimes that reach the felony level will always be more serious than misdemeanors in terms of jail time. Also, when you get a felony on your record it can affect the rest of your life. You will have more difficulty finding a place to live, getting benefits, finding a job, and supporting yourself. It’s vital that a felony charge be handled in just the right way each time. That’s why we’re the people to call if you’ve been charged with a felony.
If you’ve been charged with a felony, there’s no time to waste. The sooner you have us on your side, the better. In the early stages of the charges, we may even be able to have them dismissed or at least reduced to something less serious. Because of the life-altering nature of felony charges, we’re always going to aggressively try to have it reduced to a misdemeanor charge that doesn’t include prison time.
Probation is our goal if you’ve been found guilty of a felony. During sentencing, we will work 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to make sure that you don’t go to prison. This means that we’ll passionately plead on your behalf and show the court why it’s to everyone’s benefit to give you a second chance through probation. We believe that our clients are fully capable of turning their lives around through probation.
In most cases, we’re able to stop prison through simply going to trial. We have a 99% success rate and felony charges are included in this amazing total. This success rate percentage is living proof that we’re THE lawyers to call if you’ve been accused of committing a felony offense. The sooner you call us, the sooner we can relieve your stress by going to work on your case. We take on even the toughest of felony cases and we get the results our clients deserve and demand.
