So, you are a good person who just happened to make a mistake. Unlike most of us who make a mistake, however, you were reported (or caught) by the police for a misdemeanor crime. Now, you worry that you will not be treated fairly and are facing a criminal justice system that has little patience or forgiveness, even for smaller crimes like misdemeanors. Or, perhaps you really are innocent and now worry that the system will fail you. The system’s failure may result in your conviction and you are now in danger of being found guilty for having committed a crime that you did not commit!
All of these thoughts and fears are quite normal. They are normal because guilty and even innocent people are accused and convicted of misdemeanors every day. Even for misdemeanors, harsh punishments are handed out by judges, encouraged by over zealous prosecutors who find solace and job security in seeking out and prosecuting people, literally, for their worst moments.
First, take a deep breath. Understand that you are not alone. Most people accused of committing a misdemeanor crime are good people who just happened to make a poor, momentary, decision. The Lakewood misdemeanor criminal defense lawyers of the Bagley Law Firm, LLC understand and have a great deal of empathy for our clients. We believe that one or even a few bad “misdemeanor” moments should not define a person’s character or determine his or her future.
The Bagley Law Firm, LLC and its Lakewood misdemeanor criminal defense lawyers represent clients who face misdemeanor criminal charges. However, no matter who you hire, the most important factor is making certain that your Lakewood misdemeanor criminal defense lawyer is experienced in advocating for his or her clients. The consequences of being arrested (and, ultimately, convicted) are directly tied to the skill level of the Lakewood misdemeanor criminal defense lawyer representing you in the courtroom. All too often, similarly situated defendants, or those facing the same accusation, receive drastically heavier punishments, all as a result of the defense attorney having possessed diminished legal skills.
