Fight misdemeanors with the help of criminal defense attorneys

Not all criminal charges carry the same consequences. For example, Portland residents may find themselves facing apparently minor infractions for traffic violations, and may only have to pay modest fines to have their legal matters remedied. They may also be charged with felonies; felony convictions often result in individuals spending significant periods of time in prison for their alleged criminal wrongdoing.

Not all criminal charges carry the same consequences. For example, Portland residents may find themselves facing apparently minor infractions for traffic violations, and may only have to pay modest fines to have their legal matters remedied. They may also be charged with felonies; felony convictions often result in individuals spending significant periods of time in prison for their alleged criminal wrongdoing.

Between infractions and felonies exist misdemeanors, a class of crimes that generally are punishable by less than a year of incarceration. However, just because a misdemeanor is not punished as severely as a felony does not mean that a person facing a misdemeanor charge should simply give in to the charges without actively defending against the claim. Conviction on a misdemeanor charge can force a person to relinquish some of his rights and submit to criminal penalties that can alter his life forever.

The lawyers of the Short Law Group understand how difficult it can be for a person to manage the defense of his misdemeanor charges on his own. For that reason the firm offers a variety of criminal defense services to those people who wish to actively confront the criminal charges that prosecutors have placed in their paths. In addition to the defense of misdemeanors, the attorneys of the Short Law Group also provide criminal defense services for individuals facing felony charges in the state of Oregon.

No criminal charge is insignificant, as even the most straightforward ticket, infraction, or misdemeanor may have more serious repercussions if it is left undefended.
