Not all criminal charges are created equal. The differences between being charged with a felony and a misdemeanor can be huge — in terms of jail time, the amounts you may owe in fines and the general effect it can have on your life. Employers, for example, may ask you if you have been convicted of a felony, but rarely will they inquire about misdemeanors.

This is not to say that misdemeanor criminal charges are to be taken lightly. On the contrary, you should work with an experienced, principled misdemeanor defense attorney who will be a strong advocate for you and your freedom. That means choosing the hard-working lawyers of Dunham & Ingram, LLC, in Ocala, Florida.
