Facing criminal charges can be terrifying, but an experienced criminal defense attorney can help you understand your rights, and protect them. The Berger Firm has over 40 years of experience in defending clients against criminal allegations in state, federal, appellate and supreme courts. If you have been charged with a crime, or believe that criminal charges may be filed against you, contact The Berger Firm today to discuss how you may be able to avoid arrest or having a criminal record. The Berger Firm handles all aspects of criminal law, including:
If you have been charged with a felony, it is essential that you retain an experienced criminal defense attorney to zealously defend you in court. Felonies are the most serious crimes — such as murder, drug trafficking, conspiracy, fraud, money laundering and burglary. Felony convictions also have the most serious consequences. A person convicted of a felony faces a sentence of at least one year in a state or federal prison, and may be confined for life. In addition, convicted felons are stripped of many of the rights guaranteed to American citizens, including the right to vote, the right to travel out of the country and the right to own a gun. Convicted felons also have to disclose their crimes on job applications and can be deported if they are not American citizens.
Misdemeanors are crimes such as disorderly conduct, simple assault, drug possession and trespassing that are punishable by less than a year in jail. Although misdemeanors are less serious than felonies, having a misdemeanor conviction on your criminal record can limit your employment options and can result in a jail sentence. Ensure that you receive top representation by hiring The Berger Firm.
If you have been charged with operating a vehicle under the influence of drugs or alcohol, driving with a suspended license or vehicular manslaughter, The Berger Firm can help you.
