Dunning Law Firm defends clients against both misdemeanor and felony charges.

One of life's most frightening experiences is to have the government charge you or your loved ones with a crime. Even a few months in jail can devastate a life, while a criminal record can prevent getting any gainful employment.

Crimes are charged as Felonies or Misdemeanors. In general, Felonies are crimes that carry a potential sentence of one or more years in prison while misdemeanors involve potential time in county jail. Both usually include fines.

Unfortunately, in our adversarial system, the state prosecutor may have no problem charging a felony for something that should only be a misdemeanor, or request jail time when a small fine or probation is more appropriate. It is not uncommon that the charges should never have been brought in the first place. Failure to hire the best criminal lawyer almost always results in a conviction that could have been minimized by a competent defense.

Attorneys at the Dunning Law Firm have over 25 years experience practicing criminal law, including both misdemeanors and felonies.

鄧寧律師事務所均為客戶的輕重罪檢控辯護

人生中其中一件最恐懼的事情,莫過於你或你所愛的人面對政府的檢控。

即管是數個月的監禁,亦足以改變命運,而刑事案底更可以影響一生前途。

刑事控罪分為輕罪(Misdemeanors)和重罪(Felonies)。一般來說,重罪將有可能被判監一年或以上,而輕罪則可能被判監禁於縣監獄。兩種控罪類別均需要罰款。

不幸地,在我們的控辯機制下,州檢控官能將原本屬輕罪的犯事行為,加重以重罪提出起訴,或在原本只須判決小額罰款或緩刑的案件中,向法庭要求監禁刑期。

錯判更並非罕見,聘請最好的刑事律師能為你辯護,為控罪帶來最低刑罰的機會。
