Felony and Misdemeanor Attorneys serving West Michigan and the Grand Rapids Area for over 40 Years
Felony and misdemeanor are terms used to describe the level of severity of different crimes.
Misdemeanors are crimes less serious than felonies and are usually punishable by fine, penalty, forfeiture, or confinement for one year or less in a place other than a prison, such as a county jail.
Although less serious than a felony, misdemeanors can have damaging effects to your record, reputation, and wallet if not properly defended. It is important to make sure that you have a dedicated, reliable and aggressive attorney who has experience with the specifics of every misdemeanor charge and can successfully represent you. Michael F. Kelly and the attorneys at Kelly Law Offices, P.C. have over 40 years of experience successfully handling misdemeanor cases.
Felonies are serious crimes punishable by imprisonment for one year to life.
If you are charged with a felony, it is important that you invoke your right to remain silent until you are called for questioning. Once called, you should invoke your right to counsel and ask for an attorney. While waiting for an attorney, it is important that you do not answer any questions asked by an officer. It is also important that you avoid speaking to anyone else that may be at the station, such as others who may be in your holding cell, because any information that is overheard or freely given can be used against you.
