State Misdemeanor Charges



Misdemeanor Charges


Any criminal charge is a serious matter. Being convicted of any criminal offense, even a misdemeanor, could cost you your job, impact your future employment opportunities or adversely affect your ability to pursue educational opportunities. A conviction for certain offenses could result in severe criminal and civil penalties, including a jail sentence, probation, court-ordered community service, driver’s license suspension, court-ordered treatment, monetary fines and even a loss of basic liberties.

If your legal rights are at stake, protect your rights by retaining a highly qualified criminal defense attorney who is committed to providing a strong defense on your behalf. In Mississippi, you can find the knowledgeable and dedicated representation you require at Joe M. Hollomon & Associates.

    Protecting Your Record and Rights

    People who are charged with a misdemeanor offense are concerned about the impact a criminal conviction can have on their record and rights. While no attorney can guarantee a particular result in your case, it does help to have a seasoned criminal defense lawyer and former prosecutor working on your behalf. You can be confident that we take your legal matter very seriously and understand the impact a conviction can have on your future. We are deeply committed to each of our clients and work hard to protect their freedom, record and rights.

    We will work diligently to resolve your case as effectively as possible. Misdemeanor cases can often be resolved short of trial in a manner which protects a client’s record or which results in less serious penalties. When a satisfactory resolution cannot be obtained by agreement with the prosecution, we have the trial experience necessary to vigorously defend your rights at trial.
