Felonies, as opposed to misdemeanors, are in no danger of being laughed off. Everyone understands that a felony is serious business, and that’s been reinforced by film and television. If you get charged with a felony, you’ll be facing a minimum of one year in prison. No fines, no community service, you go directly to jail.
While a misdemeanor can potentially change your life, a felony absolutely will, with no question.
If you’re being charged with a felony, you should already know that you need a good defense attorney. But how do you decide which defense attorney to choose? All of them take felonies seriously, because they know what the punishment will be.
What you need is a defense attorney who is dedicated to being available whenever you need them, at any hour of the day, and someone who will give you the personalized attention that your unique case deserves. You need an attorney who understands that no two cases are the same, and that you’re a customer, not a criminal.
It also doesn’t hurt to find an attorney who’s so confident in their services that they’re willing to offer a free consultation so that you can see exactly how they operate.
