You Need the Right Team on Your Side

The practice of criminal law is specific to a group of laws that apply to criminal acts. These laws are designed to deter and prevent further crimes. They provide justice for the crime itself. And they bring about reform for the person who committed it.

There are two levels of crimes: misdemeanors and felonies. Misdemeanors are for lesser crimes that result in punishment fewer than 12 months in jail and often result in community service, probation, and fines. A felony, on the other hand, is a more serious crime that leads to a punishment with more than a year in jail. At the minimum level, a felony can result in 1-5 years in prison, and at the maximum level, life imprisonment or death.
