Misdemeanor Criminal Charges

Misdemeanor charges can carry serious penalties, including jail time of up to one year and result in significant fines and loss of licenses. When you are charged with a misdemeanor, including a traffic offense, domestic violence, drugs, or property crimes, Vervaecke Law and Mediation will aggressively work to reduce penalties and to make sure you receive a fair trial. 

While the consequences for misdemeanor convictions are generally less severe than for felony convictions, it is not a good idea to try and save money and act on your own behalf. If a person is convicted of a misdemeanor, and successfully completes his or her sentence, that person may be able to serve on a jury, practice the professions, and vote. It is important to retain experience legal counsel to help minimize the impact of any misdemeanor charges. 

Vervaecke Law and Mediation is dedicated to being available to answer clients’ questions and address important legal concerns. To schedule an initial consultation with Karen please call 402-504-1818. You may also e-mail now now to request an appointment.
