Defense For Felonies And Misdemeanors
Being convicted of a crime can have a lasting effect on your life and your career. For many crimes, even first-time, nonviolent offenders will have to live with a long list of restrictions on their rights — depending on the crime, you can lose the right to vote or to buy a handgun to protect your family, and those with a felony on their records often have difficulty finding employment.
The criminal defense attorneys at Michael L. Hawkins & Associates, P.L.L.C., will prepare a strong defense so you get your day in court. If you have been wrongly accused of a crime, we gather all available evidence in your defense. And if you did break the law, we’ll help you seek reduced charges — a misdemeanor instead of a felony charge, for instance — and a reduced sentence if you receive a conviction.
Experience And Contacts In The Criminal Justice System
Michael L. Hawkins spent six years working as an assistant commonwealth’s attorney (also known an assistant district attorney in most other states). As a result, he and his staff know how prosecutors and judges think, and we design our defense strategies with those factors in mind. For instance, we know what standards prosecutors must meet to prove their cases, and we take a close look at their work to make sure they have complied with all constitutional and statutory requirements under the law.
