Aggressive Defense for Misdemeanor & Felony Charges in Fort Lauderdale, FL

There are varying levels of criminal offenses, including felonies and misdemeanors. Criminal charges will be classified based on the crime itself, as well as the criminal record of the individual who is accused. Repeat offenders may be charged with a felony, even in a DUI case. Felonies are the most serious of crimes in Florida, and carry the most extreme penalties. Felonies are punishable by one or more years in a state penitentiary. Misdemeanors are punishable by up to one year in a county correctional facility. As a “convicted felon,” you may also have trouble getting employment or even a place to live.

If you have been arrested and charged with a felony or a misdemeanor offense, your future is uncertain.
