If you have been accused of a misdemeanor offense, make the smart choice and retain the services of a qualified legal team. At Merrill Law, our Reno misdemeanor attorney provides clients with the aggressive legal defense they deserve. Having strong legal counsel on your side can make a significant difference in the outcome of your case.

Examples of Misdemeanor Crimes & Penalties

Every misdemeanor offense carries slightly different penalties that change depending on the nature of the charge. The court will consider a number of factors, such as whether anyone was harmed by the offense and whether the accused had a prior criminal record.

With the right legal representation, it is possible to fight these charges and win.
