For more than 30 years, I’ve defended the criminally accused against just about every kind of criminal charge you can think of. When it comes to case types, I don’t discriminate. I’m here as your resource whether you’ve been accused of drug possession or murder — and everything in between.
Below you’ll find information about some of the most common crimes I handle regularly at my law firm. Just keep in mind that this is by no means a comprehensive list. If your particular charge isn’t listed, I still encourage you to contact me for a free consultation and find out what I can do for you.
Felonies & Misdemeanors
If you’ve never been in trouble with the law before, you may not be all that familiar with terms like “felony” and “misdemeanor.” Put simply, these are the two key classifications of criminal charges. While misdemeanors are what you might consider “small-time crimes,” felonies tend to be more harmful and therefore more severely punished.
Many crimes can be classified as either a misdemeanor or felony, depending on the way the crime was carried out. For instance, possessing a small amount of marijuana would be considered a misdemeanor in Iowa, while getting caught with a large amount of cocaine with the intention of selling it would get charged at the felony level.
