Misdemeanor Charges Really Do Matter
Misdemeanors are not minor criminal matters. Convictions are punishable by fines, probation and possible jail time. Simply stated, misdemeanor criminal matters are life-changing legal problems. Pursuit of employment or education becomes challenging when a background check shows a criminal past that may include:
- Drunk driving
- Possession of marijuana and other drug crimes
- Traffic violations
Misdemeanors can often have unanticipated consequences in other areas of your life. For that reason, where desirable, we work to negotiate pleas that will avoid those consequences, particularly when it comes to your gun rights.
A Skilled Lawyer At Your Side With Dedication And Diligence
At the Louisburg-based Tickle Law Office, we will spend time to identify the specific issues surrounding your case and any instances where your rights have been violated. From there, we conduct our own investigation, reviewing police records and witness statements to build a fact-based misdemeanor criminal defense.
Regardless of the misdemeanor charge or the serious consequences that come with convictions, our firm’s lawyer, Lawrence Tickle (or “Tickle” as our firm’s clients call him) will protect your rights and pursue the best possible outcome. While many misdemeanor criminal cases are resolved through plea bargains, we will not hesitate to take your case to trial. In the end, our goal is to minimize the consequences.
Our job is not done after your initial case is resolved. Long after criminal proceedings, we can help with expungement of your criminal records, provided that they are eligible.
