Misdemeanor Defense Lawyer in DuPage County

About Misdemeanor Charges

A misdemeanor is a crime that is punishable by a maximum of 364 days in jail and/or a fine of up to $2,500. Though misdemeanors are lesser offenses than felonies and the penalties are not as severe, a conviction for a misdemeanor may remain on your criminal record for the rest of your life, affecting employment and educational opportunities and negatively influencing your reputation. It is therefore just as important to have a competent DuPage County criminal defense lawyer on your side if you are facing misdemeanor charges. You will need experienced legal counsel to avoid a conviction, and this is the level of representation that the team at the Law Offices of Howard J. Wise & Associates can provide. Our experience as former prosecutors gives us an edge in every criminal case we handle for our clients.

Some of the types of misdemeanor cases we can handle include:

  • Assault
  • Marijuana possession
  • Possession of drug paraphernalia
  • Theft
  • Retail theft (shoplifting)
  • Trespass
  • Patronizing a prostitute
