Fort Lauderdale Misdemeanor Defense
Skilled Florida Criminal Defense Attorneys
A misdemeanor is a criminal offense which is considered lesser than a felony crime. However, misdemeanor crimes are still serious and can carry heavy penalties, including jail time. There are two classes of misdemeanors in the state of Florida, each of which vary depending on the alleged crime and can lead to different and harsher penalties.
At Raisman & Raisman, P.A., we offer strong legal defense for all misdemeanor charges. Because we focus our firm solely on criminal defense, our Fort Lauderdale attorneys have the skill and experience you need on your side.
A few examples of misdemeanor offenses we defend are:
- Domestic violence
- Resisting arrest
- Marijuana possession
- Check theft
- Underage drinking
- Public intoxication
- Vehicle burglary
How Will a Misdemeanor Conviction Affect My Life?
You may have heard that misdemeanors do not carry heavy consequences because they are not as serious as felonies. However, this is not the truth as being convicted for a misdemeanor can still lead to adverse consequences. Having a misdemeanor on your record can impact your current lifestyle, as well as your future. Your employer may fire you, you could lose your housing, and you may find it difficult to apply for a loan or education opportunities in the future. Potential employers may also shy away from hiring you if you have a misdemeanor on your record.
