Misdemeanor Crime Defense Attorney in Franklin

Experienced Defense Against Misdemeanor Charges in Williamson County

Although misdemeanor crimes are less serious than felonies, crimes of this nature should still be taken seriously. If you are arrested for a misdemeanor offense, you could still be facing serious punishments. It is important that you contact a knowledgeable Franklin criminal defense attorney from Dana McLendon Law right away after you have been arrested. Do not hesitate to get the legal guidance your case requires if you have been charged with any type of misdemeanor crime.

I offer free case evaluations to discuss the issues involved.

Types of Misdemeanor Crimes

Regardless of whether this is your first arrest, or you have an existing record, misdemeanors are still taken seriously in the eyes of the law. Law enforcement and prosecutors work hard to reach a conviction with any case they take handle. To thoroughly protect your rights, it is necessary that you hire a Franklin criminal defense attorney to represent you.

I can investigate the details of your case to determine what evidence stands against you and whether any alternative options exist. This may include reducing your sentence, proposing an alternative to jail time, or having your case dismissed altogether.

A few examples of crimes which may be charged as misdemeanors include:

Impact of Misdemeanor Convictions in Tennessee

A conviction of a misdemeanor can lead to the following forms of penalties:

  • Time in jail
  • Fines
  • Probation
  • Community service
  • A criminal record

Having a criminal record can affect your reputation and personal relationships, as well as make it difficult for you to obtain and uphold a job, obtain housing, or be eligible for bank loans.

Depending on the severity of your charges, it is possible that a misdemeanor offense could be elevated to a felony during trial. I take the time to investigate my clients' cases to determine the best possible defense strategy to employ. You can rely on me for strong advocacy, compassion, and aggressive representation.
