The average Texan is unaware of the nuanced differences between misdemeanor charges and felony charges. Though misdemeanors and felonies are distinctly different, they both carry serious consequences that the accused often underestimate.
Many people accused of a crime fail to take action after being charged with misdemeanors. Inaction can lead to a swift conviction without the chance to put up much, if any, defense. The unfortunate truth is that a series of misdemeanor charges can actually spawn felony charges. This is precisely why individuals charged with a misdemeanor must reach out to a criminal defense lawyer after an arrest.
This is a legal battle that you cannot fight alone. Ally with our Houston misdemeanor defense attorneys and you will dramatically reduce the odds of a conviction for a crime that you are not legally responsible for.
