FACING CRIMINAL CHARGES? LET US BE YOUR VOICE IN THE COURTROOM
Criminal charges are truly disruptive. Whether you are charged for a minor misdemeanor or a serious felony, they can drain you emotionally and financially. You can lose your job, your respect and reputation in the family, go broke paying hefty fines and even face jail time. Therefore, it is important to have an experienced and seasoned criminal defense attorney on board whose legal counsel you can trust.
At the Offices of Michael T. Pattison we treat our clients with compassion, which means that we understand how the possibility of a criminal conviction negatively impacts many different areas of an individual’s life. Pattison’s sound knowledge of the criminal justice system in New York enables him to build an infallible defense. His commitment to fighting for his clients’ rights and protecting their future is unmatched and always pays off.
Classification of Felonies & Misdemeanors
In New York, misdemeanors are classified into 3 main categories: Class A, Class B and Unclassified. While you might only spend 364 days in jail and pay a fine of only 1000 dollars, regardless of the classification of your offense, it’s the long-term implications that the crime has on your life that truly matter. A criminal record, damage to one’s reputation, scarce employment prospects and more.
On the other hand, felony convictions are a little trickier to wrap your head around, as they depend on a number of different factors, like the severity of the crime, the character of the convict and the specific circumstances of the case. In most felony cases, jail time is longer than a year and there are other financial penalties, depending upon the offense.
However, don’t lose hope! Just because felonies are more complex, does not mean that seasoned lawyers like Michael T. Pattison do not have the skill to build a robust defense that guarantees your freedom! For him, no case is too big and no defense is too small.
