Build a defense in misdemeanor or juvenile justice cases

When some people hear the word misdemeanor, they think of crimes that don't really matter. They usually think of having to pay fines and go on about their day. The fact of the matter is that misdemeanor crimes can have very harsh consequences, including being sent to jail. For that reason, it is vital that anyone who is facing a misdemeanor charge work to understand the charge they are facing.

Generally, you should invoke your right to have an attorney present if you are being questioned by police officers.
