Misdemeanor Defense Attorney in Ann Arbor

Working to Keep Your Record Clean

A misdemeanor is generally any criminal offense that is deemed less serious than a felony. These offenses are typically penalized with up to $1,000 in fines and/or up to one year in jail. As with any criminal matter, it is always important to meet with an attorney right away to discuss your next steps.

As an experienced Ann Arbor misdemeanor defense lawyer, I understand the laws can be confusing, especially if this is your first encounter with the criminal justice system. My goal is to educate you and ensure you understand your rights and options at all times. Together, we can work to protect your future and fight to maintain a clean criminal record.

Call my firm, Susan Longsworth, PLC, today at (734) 201-0303 to request a free consultation.

Types of Misdemeanor Offenses

Although misdemeanors are generally less serious than felonies, a misdemeanor conviction can still have a significant impact on your future. In addition to the financial penalties and the possibility of jail time, a criminal record can affect you years into the future, making it difficult to secure a job or rent a home. This is why it is important to work with an experienced attorney like myself who can fight to have your charges reduced or dropped altogether.

Examples of common misdemeanors I can defend include:

  • Petty theft
  • Simple assault
  • Misdemeanor DUI
  • Trespassing
  • Public intoxication
