We Take Misdemeanor Charges Seriously
Many people think of misdemeanor crimes as a distraction or no big deal. But there can be serious consequences, both immediate and long term, from a misdemeanor conviction.
If you are charged with a misdemeanor offense, contact Henley & Henley, Attorneys at Law, at 410-734-5536. We can fight the charges or help minimize the penalties.
What Is A Misdemeanor?
The term misdemeanor covers many offenses, from minor citations to serious criminal charges. By definition, a misdemeanor carries a jail term of less than one year in jail. We realize that any jail time is a hardship and an embarrassment, and we work hard to spare our clients from that fate.
We handle all misdemeanor offenses, including:
- Assault and battery charges
- Drunk driving (DUI and DWI)
