If you have been charged with a misdemeanor offense, you might be tempted to avoid the matter or not take it seriously – even if you were formally arrested – because “after all, it’s not a felony.” However, every criminal charge can impact every aspect of your life. It is essential to enlist the services of a criminal defense attorney who can protect your rights and reputation. No matter how small the charge, it is imperative that you speak with an experienced Lake County  criminal defense attorney like Julie R. Glade.

Wide-Ranging Experience

At the Law Office of Julie R. Glade, RN, JD, my associates and I believe in focused representation when it comes to defending criminal misdemeanor charges, and we are sensitive to the consequences of an arrest, no matter how incidental the charge may seem. Contact us today if you have been charged with a criminal misdemeanor, and let us use our resources to help you. As a Lake County criminal defense attorney, my associates and I have experience representing clients against a range of criminal charges and similar matters including:

  • Driving under the Influence (DUI) and Operating While Intoxicated (OWI)
  • Commercial Drivers License (CDL) Defense
  • Domestic Violence
  • Public Intoxication
  • Reckless Driving
  • Record Expungement
  • Traffic Law Violations
  • Assault and Battery

Zealous Representation

The key to an effective defense is researching all of the evidence involved in your criminal law case. We identify the available options allowed by law, based on the criminal charges at issue, and we explain the ramifications of a conviction as it pertains to each charge. By working with the prosecutor and addressing available strategies in court, we negotiate to have your charges reduced or even dropped altogether before the trial.

The importance of addressing misdemeanor offenses cannot be over-emphasized. A blemish on your record can result in the loss of your job and may prevent you from obtaining other types of employment. It can mean rejection of certain housing applications. It may alter your relationships with family and friends, your standing in the community, and of course, your permanent record. It’s best to contact a top attorney with years of criminal defense experience as soon as possible after you learn you are facing charges.
