Downingtown Criminal Defense Attorneys

Any misdemeanor or felony charge carries some sort of punishment, whether it is probation, jail, community service or monetary fines. It is not only important to know exactly what kind of charges you face, but also the possible penalties involved.

In addition, criminal charges have detrimental effects beyond the court system. For many immigration and nonimmigrants, criminal charges could mean denial of a visa, green card, citizenship. In the most serious situations, criminal charges can result in permanent deportation.
