Skilled Defense Against Multiple Types of Felony Offenses

We can help defend against felony charges such as:

  • Aggravated Assault - "Simple" assault, which generally involves conduct that causes someone else to fear that they will be injured or suffer harm, is usually charged as a misdemeanor. However, felony assault charges may apply if assault was committed against a police officer, firefighter, or emergency medical technician or if a person is accused of firing a gun at someone or attempting to hit them with a car.
  • Aggravated Battery - Battery is often charged alongside assault, and it involves the purposeful infliction of bodily harm. This offense may be charged as a felony if the alleged victim suffered serious injuries or if they were a police officer, firefighter, EMT, a senior over the age of 60, a child under the age of 13, or a person with a disability. The use of firearms or other weapons may also result in felony aggravated battery charges.
  • Domestic Battery - Battery committed against a member of a person's family or household may result in felony charges if the alleged offender had previously been convicted of offenses such as battery, sexual assault, or first degree murder.
  • Burglary - "Breaking and entering" into a building with the intent to commit theft or another felony offense may lead to felony charges.
  • Drug Charges - Most drug offenses involving manufacturing or distribution of controlled substances will be charged as felonies. Drug possession may also result in felony charges based on the types and amounts of substances involved in a case.
  • Felony Theft or Retail Theft - Shoplifting may result in felony charges if a person is accused of stealing at least $300 worth of merchandise.
  • Kidnapping - Confining someone against their will or taking them from one place to another with the intent of confining them is a felony offense.
  • Manslaughter/Murder - While there are several different degrees of homicide charges, they will all usually be prosecuted as felonies.
  • Felony DUI - A third or subsequent conviction for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs will be charged as a felony. Felony charges may also apply in DUI cases involving injuries or deaths, when a person had a child passenger in their vehicle, and certain other situations.
  • Vehicular Homicide - Killing someone else through the negligent or reckless operation of a vehicle may result in charges similar to manslaughter.
  • Violent Crimes - Other offenses in which a person is accused of engaging in violence against others will often be charged as felonies. These may include robbery or hate crimes.
  • Weapons Violations - Offenses such as unlawful use of a weapon, illegal possession of a firearm, and reckless discharge of a firearm are often charged as felonies.
