Getting arrested and facing criminal charges is always stressful, especially if you have little to no experience with the criminal justice system. Having the right defense representation can help you from the start, and a criminal defense lawyer in Greensboro can fight for the best possible outcome in your case. Contact the law office of E.J. Boswell to discuss your specific situation, and the following are some common questions you may have.
What types of cases do you handle?
Georgia law sets out hundreds of different crimes for which you may be charged. Some people might not even know they are breaking the law, but this will not prevent an arrest from occurring. To best help criminal defendants in the Greensboro area, attorney E.J. Boswell handles a wide range of cases, including:
- Driving under the influence (DUI)
- Traffic violations
- Misdemeanor charges
- Felony charges
- Violent crimes
Speaking with an attorney openly about your allegations can be difficult, but know we are not here to judge – only to provide the strongest defense against your charges.
Do I need a lawyer for a misdemeanor offense?
Since misdemeanors are less serious than felonies, many people assume that it is not worth it to hire an attorney. However, a misdemeanor conviction can still come with severe and lasting consequences, such as:
- Jail time
- Driver’s license suspension
Having any criminal record can also have a long-term effect on your educational and professional opportunities, as well as your immigration status and other aspects of your life.
Can you get my charges dismissed?
There are no guarantees when it comes to criminal defense, though there are many defense strategies that result in a dismissal of all charges. Even if your charges are not dismissed, a lawyer can still work to reduce your charges or penalties in many worthwhile ways.
