Buffalo criminal defense lawyer in your corner who can work to counter
the prosecution’s claims against you. No matter what you have been
accused of doing, you have rights, one of them being the right to face
your charges with legal counsel to represent you.
At Smith & Messina LLP we put our clients’ needs
first regardless of what they’re up against. We understand the criminal
process and we realize that when you are charged with a crime, you cannot
have peace of mind until it is handled properly. Our firm works to protect
your rights and your freedom at all times.
What am I facing with a misdemeanor?
We defend clients charged with various offenses such as:
- Traffic tickets
- Petit larceny
- Reckless driving
- Unauthorized Operation of a Motor Vehicle
- Drug Possession
- Driving with a Suspended License
Misdemeanors are broken into two classes, A and B, in New York. Convictions
for Class B misdemeanors can come with up to three months in jail and
upwards of $500 in fines. Class A misdemeanors are more serious, and a
conviction can bring up to a year in jail and $1,000 in fines.
For certain charges you could also face the loss of your driver’s
license or professional license or community service if you are found
guilty. You need to take any criminal charges seriously, especially since
they could stay on your record permanently, potentially limiting your
chances of keeping your job or finding one in the future. Having previous
convictions can also aggravate any future criminal charges.
