Whether a person needs legal representation in regard to a felony, misdemeanor or other violation or charge, an experienced criminal lawyer is necessary to mount an adequate defense.
Regardless of whether legal representation is needed for criminal charges concerning controlled dangerous substances, driving after revocation, or any other criminal matter, an expert lawyer can minimize the impact of criminal charges on your life. Focus must be placed on the best interests of clients so that they can get the results they deserve. Criminal charges of any kind, felonies or misdemeanors, must be taken seriously. Specifically, Grant & Longworth has extensive experience defending clients on criminal charges in city, state, federal, or municipal court, spanning a wide array of offenses including, among other things:

Regardless of the crime you are charged with and regardless of whether you choose to enter plea negotiations or proceed to trial, a criminal defense lawyer should be hired who is capable of working to protect your rights and vigorously defending you every step of the way. If you are convicted of a felony or misdemeanor in federal, state, or city court, you will face serious consequences, including:
- Establishment of a criminal record
- Large fines
