Charged with a Felony? What an Attorney Can do for You
When you are charged with a crime, you will either be charged as committing a misdemeanor offense or as committing a felony offense. Though being charged with any crime can impact your personal and professional life, when you are convicted of a felony, the consequences are often more severe. In these cases, it is invaluable to have the assistance of an experienced criminal defense attorney as a criminal defense attorney can help you understand your charges, the sentencing process, and how your charges could be potentially mitigated. If you or a loved one has been convicted of a crime, it is in your best interest to seek an experienced Maryland criminal defense attorney to help you strategize about your case.
Felony Offenses and What We Can do for You
In Maryland, when you are charged with a felony offense, a prosecutor’s main goal is to impose the most serious punishment for the crime with which you have been charged and will seek all evidence to try and prove that you have met all of the elements of the offense. These offenses can consist of, but are not limited to:
- Hit and run
- White collar crimes
These crimes are considered felonies because of the nature of the crime and the circumstances surrounding the crime. If you have been charged with a felony, then legal representation should be your number one concern as an experienced Maryland criminal defense attorney can help you pursue a verdict of not guilty, if you are to go to trial for your charges. An experienced attorney can also help you receive decreased penalties if it can be shown that the circumstances surrounding your case does not meet all of the elements of the crime with which you have been charged. Sometimes, instead of receiving a prison sentence, an attorney can help you negotiate a deal for probation instead of a lengthy prison sentence.
