Felonies are the most serious crimes. Traditionally felonies were crimes punishable by death. While most felonies no longer are capital crimes punishable by death, they are all very serious matters. Felony convictions can result in loss of your professional licenses, fines, probation, and long prison sentences. Some still carry a possible death sentence. They can cost you your career. The ramifications of a felony conviction are almost too broad to cover, including a loss of a right to vote, possess a firearm, or work in many jobs.

If you have been charged with ANY felony you need a lawyer who knows criminal law, the court you will be in, and the District Attorneys and Judges who will be involved in your case.
