Many situations can result in misdemeanor charges. Driving too fast on your way to work or having a few too many drinks on a night out, for example, could lead to a police encounter.

If you are charged with a misdemeanor offense, you deserve to know all the options available to you. You still have a chance to defend yourself and potentially avoid a mark on your criminal record. At Matthew Pillado PLLC, we know what it takes to fight a misdemeanor in Texas. Let us represent you.

What Are Misdemeanors?

Examples of the misdemeanor charges that our firm often encounters include:

Generally, a misdemeanor falls under the lowest category of criminal offense. The potential penalties are not as severe as they are for felonies. However, jail time and fines are still possible consequences. Even minor charges call for strong legal defense.

Misdemeanor Cases Are Still Critical Affairs

A misdemeanor may not carry the same penalties as a violent felony, for example, but a conviction can still affect your life. At most, a misdemeanor can result up to one year in jail and a fine of up to $4,000.

Jail time is a major life disruption, and many families cannot afford such a sudden high expense. A conviction can also risk future employment, immigration status and educational opportunities. Your freedom deserves full legal protection. When you hire our dedicated Hurst lawyers, we will identify your defense options.
