Misdemeanor Defense Attorney

Misdemeanor offenses are considered as lesser offenses when compared to felony charges. Although minor in comparison to a felony charge, misdemeanors can still have a major impact on your life.

Misdemeanors in Colorado are categorized as Class 1 (Most serious), Class 2, and Class 3 (least serious). Although misdemeanors do not carry prison sentences, they can carry extended jail time. A conviction for a misdemeanor typically means probation with additional conditions as determined by a Judge, or in a deal with a prosecutor or DA. It can also mean a lifetime of having that conviction on your record.

Some common misdemeanor charges include:

  • Theft;
  • Shoplifting;
  • Assault;
  • Harassment;
  • Fighting;
  • Child Abuse;
  • Domestic Violence;
  • Trespassing.

Misdemeanor cases can also have serious collateral consequences as well, depending on the charge and the outcome. Misdemeanors can affect security clearances, background checks, college applications, ability to carry a weapon (Lautenberg), career advancement, and many other opportunities in your future.
