Felonies Vs. Misdemeanors

When you are facing criminal charges, it can feel like the whole world is against you. The law firm of George Collins, P.A., is dedicated to protecting our clients' rights and freedom with an aggressive stance on criminal defense.

Criminal law divides charges into two groups: felonies and misdemeanors.

Felonies are the most serious crimes, including the causes of extensive physical or property harm, for which the punishment can be more than a year in prison and the loss of several rights as a citizen or immigrant.

Misdemeanors are less serious with shorter jail times or fines but convictions can still limit options later in life such as employment or living arrangements. Make sure you have an experienced criminal defense lawyer to defend you against any of these charges.

Fighting Against Jail Time And Damaging Criminal Records

Our attorneys have helped clients fight charges in a variety of situations, including:

  • Drug-related crimes

  • Theft crimes
  • Violent crimes

Our attorneys are more than up to the task of defending citizens from a misdemeanor or felony, protecting your rights to pursue jobs, education, travel and other privileges that may be lost or restricted due to a conviction. We can also address North Carolina courts to seal or expunge old records of criminal charges, increasing our clients' chance of a normal life after a prosecution.
