Misdemeanor Charge Lawyers in Fort Worth

Defense for Misdemeanor Crimes in Texas

While a misdemeanor may be a less serious type of crime than a felony, a misdemeanor charge should not be taken lightly. Yes, the punishment for a misdemeanor, in most cases, is less severe than the punishment for a felony, but a misdemeanor conviction can lead to probation, community service, fines and/or jail time for up to a year - not to mention a criminal record.

Even if you're a first-time offender in Fort Worth, don't assume that you'll walk away with a slap on the wrist. Contact a knowledgeable criminal defense lawyer right away to review your case and see where you really stand. Depending on your situation, there may be alternative options to reduce your sentence, avoid jail time, or get your case dismissed.

Collateral Consequences of Misdemeanors

Misdemeanors can have additional consequences that can negatively a person's life for years. Just the prospect of spending up to year in jail can be traumatic for many people and those left behind at home, including parents, spouses and children. Not only can a criminal record stigmatize you in your community or your church, a misdemeanor could show up on a background check during credit checks or job interviews. Finally, depending on your record and the gravity of the charges, it is possible for a misdemeanor to be elevated to a felony, in some cases. Don't let this happen.
