Misdemeanors

Richmond Misdemeanor Attorneys

Criminal charges are typically classified as either misdemeanors or felonies, depending on the nature of the crime and how much financial or physical damage was done. For example, if you were accused of stealing $100 worth of property, you would likely be charged with a misdemeanor rather than a felony.

If you have been charged with any type of misdemeanor, it is essential that you speak with a Richmond criminal defense lawyer at Throop Law right away. Call our firm at (804) 215-1515.
