Los Angeles Misdemeanor Defense Lawyer

Facing an Investigation or Arrest? Call for a Free Consultation Today.

Misdemeanors are considered to be lesser crimes than felonies, punishable by up to a year in jail and/or a fine of up to $1,000. Some misdemeanors carry specific sentences according to their statutes. If you are charged with a misdemeanor that does not carry a specific sentence, the general rule for punishment is six months in jail and/or a fine. Along with this, however, a conviction will leave you with a permanent criminal record that can have negative consequences for your future.

In any criminal matter, you should have the benefit of a trusted defense lawyer whose sole job is to fight for the most favorable outcome for you. The prosecutor’s job is to convict you and, without a strong defense mounted against the state’s efforts, your future may be at stake. At Castaneda Law, APC, we understand how vital our representation can be to the freedom and future of our clients. That is why our Los Angeles misdemeanor defense attorney is committed to creating a strong defense strategy.

More about California Misdemeanors

In California, misdemeanor offenses are categorized by the seriousness of the incident. However, these offenses can be standard misdemeanors or can be aggravated or gross misdemeanors. In aggravated or gross instances, fines may be elevated up to $2,000.

Examples of misdemeanors include:

In lieu of jail time, some misdemeanor offenses can lead to misdemeanor probation, also referred to as summary or informal probation. This involves a probationary period of one to three years during which time you will be subject to certain conditions set by the court. These conditions can include community service, house arrest, participation in treatment programs, or restitution to victims.
