Misdemeanor Lawyer in Reno

Fighting for Your Rights & Future

In the state of Nevada, a misdemeanor is a less severe crime than a felony. However, this does not mean that misdemeanors do not carry consequences of their own. 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.

Contact us today at (775) 302-2624 to make an appointment. You may also contact us online.

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. Like felonies, misdemeanor convictions will come up in background checks which could result in a possible denial of employment, housing, and licensing opportunities. With the right legal representation, it is possible to fight these charges and win.

A few examples of misdemeanor offenses include:

  • Assault
  • Battery
  • Disorderly conduct
  • Damage to property
  • DUI
  • Certain theft crimes
  • Public intoxication
  • Trespassing
  • Vandalism
  • Petty theft
