Criminal Defense Attorney in Charlotte NC, Serving Mecklenburg County and Surrounding Areas
Misdemeanors may be less severe than felony crimes, but you should never assume that misdemeanor charges are not serious. If convicted of a misdemeanor, you could easily face severe punishment-from heavy fines to jail time. This is why it is so important to retain an experienced criminal defense law firm. Whether you are charged with trespassing, shoplifting, Alcohol Law Enforcement violations, or even solicitation of prostitution, The Law Offices of Estwanik & May, PLLC treats your misdemeanor charges with the dedication and attention they deserve.
Ways criminal defense law firms can help
With the possible exception of a simple traffic ticket, an arrest on misdemeanor charges is subject to the same Miranda rights you would receive for felony charges. To ensure the best outcome of your case, you need to call a Charlotte criminal law attorney before you answer any questions. Our firm can help in many ways:
- Protect your rights after an arrest: Our attorneys are at your side during all questioning to ensure it is conducted legally and to advise you on how to respond appropriately without incriminating yourself.
- Guide you through the legal process: Our lawyers remain at your side to advise and represent you during the arraignment and throughout the criminal process.
- Build an effective defense case: Theoretically, you do not have to prove your innocence-you are presumed innocent until proven guilty. But, a critical part of your defense involves refuting the evidence the prosecution plans to use against you. At The Law Offices of Estwanik & May, PLLC, we dig deep into the details of your case to get as much evidence dismissed as possible-and refute the rest.
