Our Criminal Defense Representation
Leading the criminal law area of our firm is attorney Patricia Reeves Floyd. A former prosecutor, attorney Floyd now draws on her time in the prosecutor’s office to provide insight into how the prosecution may handle a case against a client of our firm. She confidently guides clients through the criminal justice system when they are facing a varied range of charges, including:
- Felony and misdemeanor driving while intoxicated (DWI)
- Violent crimes, such as felony-level assault and domestic violence
- Sex crimes, including felony-level rape
- Shoplifting, vandalism and other juvenile crimes
- Other general misdemeanors
Potential Consequences For A Conviction
If an individual is convicted of a crime, the severity of the punishment depends on the specific situation’s details and any mandatory sentencing requirements set out by state statute – the more serious the crime, the more severe the consequences. Misdemeanors may require minimal jail time, monetary fines and other consequences. Felonies may result in months or years in jail, thousands of dollars in fines and more. It is also important to note that any conviction may go on your criminal record and be visible to potential employers, lenders or landlords.
