The embarrassment or complexity of a criminal misdemeanor charge can seem insurmountable. At The Law Offices of John C. Manoog III, you will find a criminal defense lawyer who knows the criminal justice system well, who will explain your options so that you fully understand them, and will guide you through this challenging situation.
If you or a family member has been arrested, the first person you discuss the case with should be a criminal defense lawyer who will protect your rights at every step of the criminal justice process.
- Our first goal is to find cause for a dismissal of the charges. Is the evidence compelling? Was it properly obtained?
- Your defense attorney may be able to negotiate a pre-trial probation. There is no admission of guilt and a successful probation could remove the charges.
- Your case may be continued without a finding.
- You may decide to plead to the charge or to a lesser charge.
- With your lawyer, you may decide to take the case to trial. At The Law Offices of John C. Manoog III, we are always prepared for trial.
