We Fight for Your Rights
The experienced attorneys at The Law Offices of Marvin D. Miller have successfully defended clients facing charges ranging from minor infractions to major felonies and conspiracies.
Misdemeanors are crimes with a penalty that cannot exceed 1 year. They are seen as less serious in the eyes of some courts, but the outcome of your case can still weigh heavily on your future. Many misdemeanors may involve paying a fine or making an agreement with the prosecutor to avoid violating the law for a period of time. We find what is best for you in your case.
Felonies are more serious crimes in terms of the punishments. The most serious violent crimes are felonies. A felony can be penalized by over 1 year in prison, and there is the possibility of a very large fine instead of or in addition to jail time.
There may be different alternatives available in certain cases. Sometimes, adjustments can be made so there is a better outcome in your case. We work with you to determine the best approach for your individual case.
