All too often, I hear potential clients ask, "why should I hire a lawyer, this is only a misdemeanor offense." Truth be told, misdemeanor offenses are less serious than felonies. However, a conviction for a misdemeanor offense is still a permanent mark on your record. Furthermore, many misdemeanor offenses like simple battery, DUI, and suspended license offenses can be recategorized as felonies if you were to have multiple misdemeanor convictions. For these reasons, and many others, it is important that you consider speaking with a skilled and experienced Orlando Misdemeanor Attorney about your case and what you can expect. Call us today at 407-473-1233.
