Any criminal accusation or charge can put a person's reputation and freedom at risk - even misdemeanor charges. A conviction on a misdemeanor offense, when a judge sees fit, can result in jail time, expensive fines, community service, mandated treatment programs and other penalties. When the criminal accusation is a felony, a conviction can result in extensive time in state prison. A conviction also can affect every aspect of a person's future, including employment and professional licenses, ability to own a firearm, and ability to vote.
At Kernan & Austin, LLC, we are experienced in helping our clients reduce the damage and avoid the severe penalties of a conviction. Most serious criminal charges - such as drug crimes, assault and battery, and firearm offenses - result in a trial. How the process is managed from the moment of arrest often directly influences the outcome. Our legal team is aware of this, which is why our first action is to meticulously comb through the evidence that led to your arrest.
