Dublin Misdemeanor Charges Defense Attorney

Serving Those Charged with a Misdemeanor in California

A misdemeanor offense is less serious than a felony offense, but this does not mean that you will avoid jail or steep fines. The difference in these cases is that your sentence will not be for over 1 year in jail. A year in jail is a very long time, and your life can take a terrible turn if you do not act quickly and contact a Dublin criminal defense lawyer to assist you in defending the charge. In cases in which the charge is minor, a conviction can still have a negative effect on your future; your criminal record will forever reflect your conviction.

For example, if you are convicted of DUI offense, this becomes a matter of public record and future employers often do background checks on potential employees. You can lose a good job opportunity easily with a misdemeanor offense on your record, particularly drugs, alcohol-related offense and any violent crime or petty theft convictions. Obtain representation from the top criminal defense lawyer in Dublin to assist you in your misdemeanor case.
