Beverly Hills Misdemeanor Defense Attorney

While misdemeanor charges carry less serious penalties than felonies, they should not be taken lightly. Heavy fines and time in local county jail can still be included, and a mark on your record can still damage your reputation, current employment, and future employment opportunities. In addition to this, repeat offenses, such as repeat DUIs, can lead to increased fines and longer jail time.

For most non-serious misdemeanor offenses, probation sentences are often given by the presiding judge, resulting in conditions that must be met, such as community service, electronic monitoring, counseling or treatment programs, or even paying restitution to the victim. If you are facing a misdemeanor charge, it may be best to speak with a skilled Beverly Hills criminal defense lawyer.
