So many make the mistake of going to court and taking the "first deal" offered by the district attorney (without ever consulting with an attorney). These defendants are often happy to sign the deal because they are being presented with offers with no fines or jail time. In their haste to "get the case over with" they assume they can represent themselves. But, many of these charges ARE real criminal convictions. Even if there is no jail or fine, pleading guilty will result in a criminal conviction and criminal record. This can lead to all kinds of adverse effects and actions (from failing background checks associated with a job to having one's driving privileges revoked). Mike has represented thousands of clients charged with municipal crimes and misdemeanors. Our firm takes all cases and charges very seriously (from the 1st Degree Murder to a speeding ticket). We know that municipal crimes and misdemeanors are not always as minor as they seem. Mike has gotten many charges dismissed or prosecution of the case deferred where the initial plea offer was conviction (adjudication).
