Misdemeanor Defense

Arrested for a Misdemeanor?

If you have been charged with a misdemeanor, you may wonder whether to seek legal representation or just take your chances. While a misdemeanor charge is not as serious as a felony, it may result in a jail sentence of up to 12 months in city or county jail. Other penalties include fines, probation, community service, orders of protection, driver's license suspension and treatment programs. Repercussions include a mark on your criminal record potentially affecting applications for scholarships, jobs and loans.

Acting immediately and enlisting the services of a Brooklyn criminal defense attorney gives you the best chance of a favorable outcome of charges. You owe it to yourself and to your future to be properly represented against misdemeanor charges.

Assertive Advocates in Your Time of Need

We take misdemeanor charges seriously and are dedicated to helping our clients avoid conviction. The Law Offices of David E. Levine proudly serves the Brooklyn community. We investigate the circumstances of the charge and are alert to evidence that provide defense against charges. If the police have violated our client's constitutional rights we move to dismiss evidence illegally obtained. When state witnesses misrepresent the facts, we use cross-examination and other defense tools to set the matter straight and dismantle the prosecutor’s defense.
