Albany – Saratoga Criminal Defense Misdemeanor Lawyers
Misdemeanor convictions are less severe than felony, but should not be taken lightly. Both can be costly in terms of time in court, and the penalties and punishments involved. You can pay some very lofty fines and you can also be sentenced to perhaps a year in jail. A misdemeanor conviction makes it more difficult to secure financial loans for a new home, business venture, and even higher education loans. None of this has to happen if you have the right representation.
Carbone & Carbone attorneys have experience helping our clients who have been wrongly accused of misdemeanors. Our experienced and skilled legal team launch a criminal defense team for our clients who have been arrested on misdemeanor or felony charges.
