Strong Misdemeanor Criminal Defense Strategies from an Oklahoma City Attorney
Focused on helping you fight criminal charges in Norman and surrounding areas
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 attorney at Amanda R. Everett, P.C., 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.
Amanda Everett helps 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. She looks into the circumstances of your arrest, challenging the arresting officer’s account of the incident and any field sobriety and Breathalyzer® tests. She handles 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 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. Amanda Everett helps 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, she efficiently pursues 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 an attorney whose representation gives you the best chance to move forward successfully. To learn more, visit the misdemeanor FAQ page.
