Rochester Misdemeanor Attorney

Put Years Of Legal Experience On Your Side

People convicted of misdemeanors often find it hard to get a job or find housing if their potential employer or landlord runs a background check and finds they have a criminal record. Our skilled Rochester criminal defense attorney can help defend your rights and your freedom.

Misdemeanors are punishable by no more than 1 year in county jail; however, the punishment will depend on the circumstances of your arrest and your prior criminal records. Offenders who have never had a criminal conviction before may be able to get off with probation, community service, fines, driver’s license suspension, or enrollment in a treatment or counseling program.

Class A misdemeanors are usually the most severe type, just below felony level. They can lead up to 1 year in jail. Class B misdemeanors are less serious crimes and are punishable by up to 6 months in prison.

Some misdemeanor charges we can handle include the following:


Sexual abuse
