New Orleans Criminal Justice Attorney Explain Felony Charges

Felony charges are serious. If you are facing a felony charge, be aware that you have criminal defense rights. The most important first step is to contact Stephen Hebert, a distinguished New Orleans criminal defense attorney. If convicted there are serious fines and penalties involved including jail time. The negative impact of such a conviction can impact education and employment opportunities. You will never be able to own a fireman and voting rights will be prohibitive.

Although misdemeanor convictions can result in jail time, the impact of this type of charge is much less severe than a felony charge. This attorney will work with the prosecutor initially to determine if a plea is appropriate in your case to avoid a criminal trial. He will strive to protect your life with the least impact as possible.  This attorney is an expert at evaluating criminal charges to minimize the impact on his clients.  In a plea negotiation, both attorneys reach an agreement which is more favorable than proceeding to trial. Usually, a plea is more favorable to the defendant. In some instances, he may be required to plead guilty to a lesser charge with less severe penalties. When a plea is reached, the prosecutor will recommend that the judge considers leniency in the sentencing.

If you have been charged with a felony, it is imperative to contact Stephen Hebert, a renowned New Orleans criminal attorney immediately to discuss your options for a favorable outcome.
