A Felony Conviction Could Mean Prison Time, As Well As Loss Of Your Gun Rights!

Felony charges are always serious. Every felony charge holds the potential for PRISON TIME and large fines. We have defended several thousand Felony charges. Our criminal defense legal team uses that experience, and problems we find with the prosecutor’s evidence, to work toward really great outcomes for our clients. Those may include winning your case, getting dismissal of charges, keeping you out of jail, keeping charges off of your record, keeping fines low, etc.

All felony convictions can expose you to real and hidden costs. Some of the real costs can be:

Minimum of 0 years, maximum of 6 years in prison and/or up to a $10,000 fine.

Minimum of 3 years, maximum of 10 years in prison and/or up to $10,000 fine.

Minimum of 5 years, maximum of 20 years in prison and/or up to $15,000 fine.

Minimum of 6 years, maximum of 30 years in prison and/or up to a $15,000 fine.

Minimum of 10 years, maximum of 40 years or life in prison with various fines.

In addition, depending on your charge, there may be some hidden costs as well:

  • You may lose your gun rights;
  • You may have trouble qualifying to rent an apartment or house;
  • You may be fired from your current job;
  • You may lose your voting rights; and
  • You may have trouble getting jobs in the future.

No lawyer can guarantee the results of a case; however, at Norwood & Norwood, we do promise that we will fight hard to:

  • Find a way to win your case;
  • Get charges dismissed or reduced;
  • Keep you out of jail;
  • Keep charges off your record;
  • Keep your fines low;
