Understanding Your Misdemeanor Charges
After you have been charged with a misdemeanor, it is important that you
understand your charges and your legal options. If you are convicted,
you could be facing jail time, fines, and other civil penalties. Having
a criminal record can also affect your personal life and your future employment
opportunities. Our goal is to quickly build a case on your behalf that
brings into question the allegations against you.

The way to make a misdemeanor go away is to have it expunged. Most misdemeanors,

a small number of Class A and B felonies are expungeable. Cases that are
eligible include drug possession, domestic violence and assault, etc.
