Focused On Helping You Fight Criminal Charges
Misdemeanor charges can carry significant penalties, but many people accused of these crimes believe that they cannot afford strong legal representation to fight the charges against them. However, that is not true. With the experienced Oklahoma criminal defense attorneys at Everett & Taylor, you receive professional legal services at affordable rates.
How Can I Benefit from Working with a Misdemeanors Defense Lawyer?
A number of common crimes are misdemeanors. The penalties for misdemeanors may include fines, probation, community service and jail or prison time. Working with a knowledgeable attorney gives you the opportunity to defend yourself against the criminal charges with improved chances of a favorable outcome over trying to face charges without legal representation.
We help with the following types of misdemeanor cases:
- DUI and DWI. A DUI conviction can mean fines, jail time and loss of your driver’s license. We look into the circumstances of your arrest, challenging the arresting officer’s account of the incident and any field sobriety and Breathalyzer® tests. We handle both the criminal proceedings and any administrative hearings with the Department of Public Safety.
- Assault and battery. These cases depend on the testimony of the victims or witnesses. Your Norman criminal defense lawyer challenges these accounts, while demonstrating to the court your innocence and past record of good behavior.
- Petty theft. This includes shoplifting and fraud. While some may consider these crimes minor in nature, the penalties can be harsh — even for the theft of a small item. Our lawyers help you fight the charges, seeking reduced penalties whenever possible.
- Drug crimes. In many cases, drug charges come from illegal searches or law enforcement officers’ seizure of your property without a warrant or your permission. If this has happened to you, we efficiently pursue the dropping of the charges.
Don’t give up or plead guilty just because you doubt that you’ll find a good attorney to represent you. Work with our team for representation that gives you the best chance to move forward successfully.
