The Griffin Law Firm can help you resolve your misdemeanor criminal case as efficiently and beneficially as possible.

Although misdemeanor charges are less serious than felony criminal charges, they can still result in some harsh, potentially long-term penalties upon conviction. Specifically, jail time, creating a criminal record and expensive fines can all be imposed on the accused when they are convicted of a misdemeanor crime. What can make matters worse, however, are the facts that misdemeanor convictions may also result in:

  • The loss of professional licenses such as a medical license or teaching credential, which can trigger the loss of a person’s career
  • The loss of certain rights, such as the right to possess a firearm or the right to drive
  • Significant financial setbacks, which could force a person into bankruptcy
  • Permanent damage to a person’s reputation
  • Irreversible damage to personal relationships, including family members.

With all that is potentially at stake when a person is facing misdemeanor charges, it’s crucial that the accused work with an experienced defense lawyer to ensure that:

  • Their rights are fully protected.
  • Their best interests are being championed at every step of the legal process.

Defense Strategies in Misdemeanor Cases

While we tailor our defense strategies to the specific type of charges our clients face as well as the unique circumstances of their case, some defense arguments we may use to help you fight misdemeanor charges can include arguing that:

  • Police illegally obtained evidence.
  • Police failed to read you your Miranda rights upon your arrest.
  • You have been mistaken for the individual who actually committed the offense in question.
  • Witnesses have wrongfully accused you of the crime to try to ruin your reputation or exact revenge on you for some reason.
  • There is insufficient evidence to warrant the given charges.
