La Plata & Waldorf Felony Lawyer
If you have been charged with a felony, hiring an experienced felony defense lawyer may be the most important thing you do in your life.
In Maryland, a felony is the most serious criminal charge, reserved for activity the government considers especially harmful or dangerous. But the fact is, criminal defendants are frequently charged with a more serious crime than they deserve. Innocent people sometimes find themselves facing felony charges simply because the police made a mistake. In other cases, what should be a misdemeanor is ramped up to a felony because the state failed to exercise fair judgment when assessing the crime. It may also be that the alleged crime is, in fact, a felony, and an experienced La Plata & Waldorf felony lawyer is needed to effectively refute the charges and help ensure penalties are reduced to the greatest extent possible.
Our lawyers understand how frightening, demoralizing, and arbitrary felony charges can be. We are here to protect your rights and fight for your freedom.
The state is aggressive in pursuing felony charges. If a technicality can bump a minor charge up to a felony, prosecutors and police are known to exploit those technicalities to secure a tougher conviction. If you are charged with a felony in Maryland, your freedom and future are at stake. You are facing the very real threat of a long-term prison sentence, significant fines, and the revocation of some of your most basic rights as a U.S. citizen. By seeking the representation of an experienced felony defense attorney, you are taking necessary and decisive action to protect yourself and, ultimately, steer your life back on track where it could have veered irreversibly off course.
