Experience Defending A Variety Of Charges
Misdemeanors and felonies carry lifelong ramifications that can damage your job prospects, housing, education and more. Do not simply place your fate into the hands of the justice system and hope for the best. Take matters into your own hands with an aggressive defense.
Jonathan Burge, Attorney At Law, has been working in criminal law for more than 30 years – 10 years as a police officer and nearly 25 years as a defense attorney. He can defend you against any number of misdemeanor or felony offenses, never easing up until he has achieved the best results possible.
Misdemeanors Vs. Felonies: What To Know
The two broadest categories of crimes are misdemeanors and felonies. Misdemeanors are less serious than felonies. The sentence tends to be probation, community service, up to one year in jail or some form of alternative sentencing. Common misdemeanors include:
- Possession of marijuana
- Reckless driving
The court punishes felonies much more severely. Most felony charges carry more than one year of jail time. Examples of felonies include:
- Assault and battery
- Promotion or trafficking of a controlled substance
- Sexual assault
Mr. Burge has experience with all these charges and more. He can explain the potential consequences you face and help you understand the law in detail.
