Syracuse Misdemeanor Lawyers
Vigilant, Knowledgeable Counsel from Team Green Lawyers
Misdemeanors are criminal acts that are not considered especially serious but can still come with criminal penalties. While many criminal defendants expect a “slap on the wrist” following an arrest for a misdemeanor, many are surprised to learn that significant fines and even jail time may be a possibility. No matter what the perceived seriousness of your offense might be, it is always advised that you speak with trusted defense counsel before proceeding with your case.
Our legal team at Team Green Lawyer includes former prosecutors who are familiar with the adverse effects a misdemeanor conviction can have in the life of a defendant and their loved ones. We take a comprehensive approach to criminal defense and work with our clients and their families to protect their rights and interests during this critical time.
It can be possible to secure reductions and dismissals in misdemeanor cases. Contact us today to request a free case analysis.
