Misdemeanor Criminal Defense
Avoid the Consequences of a Lasting Criminal Record
Just because misdemeanors are less serious than felonies does not mean they aren’t serious. A misdemeanor conviction on your permanent criminal record can have negative consequences that affect your ability to get a job, housing, or financial opportunities. Defend your future by calling Solomon Criminal Defense. With over a decade of award-winning legal service, Attorney Mark Solomon has the understanding to help you utilize the law in a way that will help you obtain the best possible outcome for your situation.
Even if you were not “arrested” (placed in handcuffs and taken to jail) a summons with a misdemeanor charge can be just as serious an offense as one where you are arrested. If you were arrested, you have likely posted a bond to get out of jail. You need to know your options on how to proceed: when to investigate, when to hire an expert to determine if your case has a good defense based on specialized examination of evidence and whether you have a good case for trial.

Would a one-week jail sentence destroy your life?
Spending any time in jail is most people’s idea of a nightmare. Many misdemeanor cases require jail by law, such as second offense DUI convictions and bond violations. In other cases, the prosecutor will require jail as part of their plea offer because of the aggravating facts of the case or a person’s criminal history.
Get a misdemeanor criminal defense attorney on your side to protect you from the legal system
Misdemeanor cases have the potential to disrupt a person’s life. Misdemeanors are not small cases when a conviction could end your career or your intended future career.
If you intend to be a police officer, a guilty plea can be disastrous. Some large departments will disqualify you if you have entered a guilty plea, even if the case was dismissed after a deferred judgment.
Misdemeanor charges are serious, and you should have a misdemeanor criminal defense attorney on your side who understands the issues that are important to you.
Not a U.S. Citizen? Immigration consequences of misdemeanor charges can be very bad
If you are not a U.S. Citizen, you will need an immigration attorney’s advisement. This advisement must address how the criminal case will affect your status in the U.S.
Your immigration status is controlled by Federal immigration law. Noncitizens charged with crimes can lead to deportation. A plea can delay becoming a citizen for years or disqualify you from ever becoming a U.S. citizen. You might never be allowed back into the U.S. That is why even the most minor of criminal charges will require understanding what will happen.
You need to know the consequences of your case before making decisions that will affect the rest of your life. We only work with the best immigration attorneys to help you. Mr. Solomon is a misdemeanor criminal defense attorney who will listen to you and help you.
