Misdemeanor Defense Lawyer St. Paul & Minneapolis

misdemeanor defense lawyerA misdemeanor isn’t as serious as a gross misdemeanor or a felony, but it is still serious. There is a misconception that a misdemeanor doesn’t warrant any kind of defense. This results in many individuals sitting back and accepting the charges and the consequences. The mindset is that it is just better to get a misdemeanor over with rather than fight it.

When you hire an experienced St. Paul criminal defense lawyer to represent you, you have the chance at keeping the misdemeanor off of your permanent record. Having a misdemeanor on your record could result in difficulty finding a job, a place to live, and doing anything that requires a background check to be performed first.

Aggressive Misdemeanor Offense

Just because a crime is charged as a misdemeanor doesn’t mean that it doesn’t require an aggressive approach. We will carefully evaluate what occurred so that we can gather the facts and build a strong defense designed to achieve the best resolution.

Some common misdemeanors include:

  • Some types of theft
  • First-time DWI
  • Traffic offenses
  • Assault in the fifth degree
  • Trespass

These offenses and others can be classified as petty misdemeanors, misdemeanors, or gross misdemeanors. A gross misdemeanor is one level down from a misdemeanor and can involve jail time. A gross misdemeanor includes the assault of a peace officer, a second or third DWI offense, stalking, and a number of other offenses.
