Criminal Law Defense Attorney
Do you need a criminal attorney?
- Have you been charged with a crime that may carry a punishment?
- What have you been charged with a Misdemeanor or Felony?
- Are there any justification defenses that apply?
- What evidence does a state or federal government have?
- Is this evidence admissible?
We at Betti & Associates are well versed in the practice of Criminal Procedure, which is the process through which criminal laws are enforced. The manner in which a local, state or federal government enforces the substantive law through the gathering of evidence and prosecution is generally considered a procedural matter.
Crimes are usually categorized as felonies or misdemeanors based on their nature and the maximum punishment that can be imposed. A felony involves serious misconduct that is punishable by imprisonment for more than one year or even by death. Most state criminal laws subdivide felonies into different classes with varying degrees of punishment. Crimes that do not amount to felonies are misdemeanors or violations. A misdemeanor is misconduct for which the law prescribes punishment of no more than one year in prison. Lesser offenses, such as traffic and parking infractions, are often called violations and are considered a part of criminal law.
Are there any justification defenses such as necessity, self-defense, defense of others, and defense of property that could be applied to your case?
What does the evidence look like in your case and can that evidence be excluded from trial in the form of a motion to suppress.
We vigorously defend and successfully advocate on our client’s behalf to get charges dismissed.
