Tulsa Misdemeanor Lawyer

If you or a loved one has been arrested or charged with a misdemeanor offense, you should contact a Tulsa misdemeanor lawyer at the Henson Law Firm to speak to an attorney about your case. A misdemeanor offense is considered less serious than a felony offense, but a misdemeanor conviction can have significant consequences. The penalties for an Oklahoma misdemeanor charge may range from a deferred or suspended sentence to one year in the county jail. In contrast, an Oklahoma felony charge carries a minimum of one year in prison. While a misdemeanor conviction will not be as damaging on your record as a felony, the conviction may damage your reputation, affect your employment, prevent you from receiving certain types of loans, as well as put your immigration status in jeopardy. In order to prevent these consequences, you need to hire a Tulsa misdemeanor attorney to defend you and protect your rights.
