Get The Help That You Need

In the state of California, a misdemeanor conviction can result in up to a year in jail and a fine of $1,000. Misdemeanors remain on your record unless expunged, meaning they can be a stain on future employment background checks. While a criminal defense attorney for misdemeanors may be able to get your charge expunged eventually, the best defense is to fight the charges and keep them from appearing on your record in the first place.

If a court has charged you with a misdemeanor, it's essential that you seek out the services of a qualified attorney as soon as possible. Here at the Law Offices of Tabone, we have over 40 years of experience representing and fighting for clients. Let's take a look at what misdemeanors are, the consequences of conviction, how to get your misdemeanor expunged, and more.
