Attorney at Law
While any arrest is serious, there are distinctions within criminal law between crimes that are dealt with more harshly than others. FELONIES carry penalties with State Penitentiary (Department of Corrections) incarceration, from anywhere from no minimum time to Life Without Parole.
This is certainly not an exhaustive list.
If you are convicted of a FELONY you will no longer be able to vote, buy a firearm, or run for many political offices. It becomes extremely difficult to find a job. You can be evicted from your home. Finally, you may spend a number of years either under DOC supervision or incarceration.
The process for a FELONY charge is complex and time-consuming. It is extremely important to find an attorney who knows exactly what they are doing within this arena of the law. This is not a time to cut corners with finances or take a risk with a 'budget' attorney. As in any business, you get what you pay for.
Not every case needs to go to a jury trial. However, having an attorney who isn't afraid to 'put on a trial' is extremely important.
