Felonies, Misdemeanors, and Traffic Offenses
Felonies are very serious, and include crimes such as armed robbery, as well as grand larceny, possession of cocaine or heroin, malicious wounding, and other serious charges. The classification of crime as a felony is based upon the maximum sentence provided by law — not by what a court actually imposes. Each state and the federal government has its own criminal codes. The element of a particular crime can vary as can the sentencing range. If you are charged with a felony or felonies, it would be in your interest to retain an attorney who has much experience with the laws surrounding felonies. Our law firm understands the importance of thorough preparation and exacting attention to detail, which are crucial for a successful turnout in a serious case.
Misdemeanor crimes are usually considered less serious than felony crimes and typically have less severe penalties. Nevertheless, having a misdemeanor charge on your record can result in serious consequences. The Law Office of Jennifer M. Newman, P.C. represents individuals charged with misdemeanor crimes and works hard to achieve a good result for all their clients.
Your right to drive is very important. Traffic offenses can put that right in jeopardy. Commuting to work, going to the grocery store, running errands and meeting friends are all examples of daily events that take you out on the road. Any time you are rushed or have things on your mind, these daily events present opportunities for traffic violations. Traffic law violations carry stiff penalties and may result in long-term effects. In addition to escalating fines, you may face insurance companies that raise premiums or drop your policy. Our firm will fight to ensure your privilege to drive.
