Experienced Defense against the Most Serious Charges

Felonies are the most serious crimes one can face under the American judicial system. As such, they carry the most severe penalties, including major fines and even lengthy incarceration in a state or federal penitentiary. Violent felonies include serious types of Robbery, Burglary, and Assault.

In some cases, a particular crime may be classified as either a misdemeanor or a felony depending on the factual circumstances. For examples, assaults with physical injury are misdemeanors but those with serious physical injury are felonies, and some misdemeanor crimes, such as drunk driving, can be raised to a felony based upon a prior conviction.

What Is Considered a Felony?

There are many felony crimes, including:

  • Burglary
  • Evidence tampering
  • Forgery
  • Drug crimes
  • Firearms crimes and other weapons violations
  • Money laundering

Remember, the circumstances may determine if a crime is classified as a misdemeanor, a felony or a violent felony. You may face additional mandatory penalties if your crime involved a deadly weapon. And if your crime was committed against a policeman or other law enforcement officer, you are almost certainly facing serious felony charges.

Does Having a Felony Ruin Your Life?

A felony conviction can ruin your life. It can leave you with a criminal record that prevents you from voting, purchasing a firearm, finding housing or employment, or obtaining a loan. When facing such charges, you simply must consult an attorney experienced with criminal law.

What Does Having a Felony Prevent You From Doing?

Being convicted of a felony can serious limit several parts of your personal life and professional career. Most employers have a policy in place that allows them to immediately terminate employees that have been convicted of a felony. In addition, finding new work becomes more difficult as well due to the background checks recruiters run for their company. A felony can keep you out of certain industries entirely and also limit your ability to start a business on your own.
