Criminal Defense Lawyers

A criminal defense attorney will defend you if you have been arrested and face criminal charges, need help negotiating a plea bargain, face trial by the government, or need to appear at a sentencing hearing. If you have been arrested or convicted of a crime, an expungement lawyer may be able to expunge your criminal records or have them sealed, depending on your age, the nature of your offense, and whether you have complied with the terms of your probation or sentence.

Criminal Defense: Felonies

A Court Buddy criminal defense attorney can defend you if you have been arrested, need help with a plea bargain, with a trial, and face fines, jail, or other punishment by the government. Different states define different acts as crimes, classify them differently, and will punish them differently. Generally speaking, however, states treat crimes as either misdemeanors, felonies, or capital offenses. If you have been charged with a crime the government still needs to prove its case against you. You are only subject to punishment if you have been convicted at trial or if you accept a plea (plead “guilty” to an offense and accept consequences). If you aren’t sure what you have been charged with or what to do after you have been arrested with criminal charges, it is best to consult a criminal defense attorney.

Felonies are considered to be more serious crimes against the state than misdemeanors and are punished more severely, by hefty fines and jail time. Common felonies include assault and battery, domestic violence, driving crimes, drug crimes, fraud, sex crimes, and theft. Murder, rape, burglary, arson, and robbery are felonies in certain states. In other states, these can be capital offenses, depending on the circumstances. If you have been charged with a felony, a Court Buddy criminal defense attorney can help.
