Strategic Defense Designed for Positive Results

Misdemeanor Defense Lawyer in Fort Bend

Representing the Criminally Accused in The Greater Houston Area

A misdemeanor is a crime that holds more weight than a citation, but less than a felony. Although they can vary in severity, punishments are generally less harsh than that of a felony. In fact, the most severe punish for a misdemeanor offense is up to 1 year in county jail and up to a $4,000.00 fine.

A large range of crimes are classified as misdemeanors and separated by ‘classes’ ranging from Class A (the most serious) to Class C (the least serious). Even though a misdemeanor is not as serious as a felony, a conviction can still impact your life. You may find it more difficult to receive higher education, find a job, or even obtain an occupational license or firearm.
