Misdemeanors

If you’ve been charged with a misdemeanor, your future is at stake. Philadelphia misdemeanor lawyers Schrom & Shaffer, P.C. can help.

Many people don’t view misdemeanor crimes as serious, and while the penalties associated with them are far less than felony crimes, they are still no laughing matter. Being convicted of a misdemeanor crime could earn you jail time, heavy fines, probation, community service, alcohol or drug counseling and a permanent criminal record. Even if you satisfy all of the court’s requirements, you will still have a criminal record that will haunt you for the rest of your life, making it difficult for you to get a job, own a home or even rent an apartment.
