Under state and federal laws, crimes can either be charged as misdemeanors or felonies, depending on the nature and severity of the offense. In general, felonies are considered more serious than misdemeanors, and they often carry lengthy prison sentences, steep fines, and other restrictions. Misdemeanors can still result in significant consequences, such as jail time, probation, fines, and other punishments. Whether you are facing a felony or misdemeanor charge, Dean Law Group P.C. is here to provide you with effective and aggressive legal representation, fighting hard to protect your rights at every turn.
A felony conviction can take away your right to vote, own a firearm, and you may face long periods of incarceration. Because so much is at stake, working with the right defense attorney is crucial. It is critical that you contact an attorney early in the criminal process to protect and preserve all your rights. At Dean Law Group P.C., we have decades of experience handling all types of criminal proceedings in Oregon and Washington, as well as in the U.S. District Court in Oregon and in the Western District of Washington. We’ve served clients charged with violent crimes, Measure 11 crimes, rape, sex abuse, assault, drug charges, and more.
A misdemeanor is a crime that carries a penalty of less than one year in jail. Misdemeanor crimes may include DUII, shoplifting, prostitution/solicitation, strangulation, and others. Like felonies, misdemeanor convictions can show up on background checks, affect your ability to be hired, and restrict your ability to travel internationally.
