Facing Felony Charges?
A felony is any offense that can be punished by more than a year in jail—in other words, a crime that carries potential prison. Felony convictions have severe and lasting collateral consequences in your life. If you have an upcoming felony case, it will likely be in the Maricopa Superior Court in Downtown Phoenix or Mesa.
Facing Misdemeanor Charges?
Misdemeanor charges carry up to 6 months jail, fines, fees, probation, and much more. Penalties in misdemeanors are often minor; however, a conviction can leave you with a permanent criminal record.
If you have an upcoming misdemeanor case, it will either be in either municipal or justice court. This information should be in your paperwork. If you were charged by city police, you’ll likely be in city or municipal court. If you were charged by DPS, you’ll likely be in a Maricopa County Justice Court. Either way, you’ll need an experienced and dedicated attorney to protect your interests.
