Criminal law is a complex blend of state and federal statutes.
Each state defines its own set of laws and punishments for state crimes.
Due to the complexity of the criminal justice process, the average person is often unable to understanding the full breadth of the law or how to navigate the system on their own.
A qualified criminal defense attorney often spends a considerable amount of time reviewing all documentation to provide the most appropriate legal advice and representation for those charged with crimes, whether a misdemeanor or a felony.
Depending upon the case, punishments can range from fines or community service to long term prison terms, or even the death penalty.
It is important to make informed decisions and avoid costly mistakes, and the representation of a competent criminal attorney could make the difference between a long prison sentence and being exonerated. Please call us at (954) 306-6921 to evaluate your case.
