Are You Facing a Misdemeanor?

New York Misdemeanor Lawyer

Misdemeanor Charges

Criminal offenses are categorized depending upon the severity of penalties which may be associated with a conviction. A misdemeanor is an offense which may be penalized by up to one year in county jail. A felony is a more serious offense and may result in imprisonment for more than one year in state prison.

Certain felony offenses may even result in life imprisonment or the enforcement of the death penalty. Some crimes, such as domestic violence, assault and DWI are what are referred to as "wobblers" meaning they may be classified as misdemeanors or felonies, depending on the specific case.

Is your offense a misdemeanor or a felony?

The attorneys at Gannes & Musico, LLP provide legal representation for numerous types of misdemeanor offenses throughout Long Island, New York and New Jersey.

We can defend you against charges for the following misdemeanors:​​​​

  • Shoplifting
  • Petty Theft
  • Harassment
  • Disorderly Conduct
  • Resisting Arrest
  • Simple Assault
  • Simple Battery
  • Trespassing
  • Perjury
  • DWI
  • Drug Offenses

Although misdemeanors are considered lesser offenses than felonies, aggressive and immediate criminal defense representation will still be necessary if you are to have the opportunity to avoid a conviction and serious penalties. Having a misdemeanor conviction on your record can limit your employment opportunities and your ability to obtain certain loans – in addition to damaging your reputation.
