What Are General Misdemeanor Offenses?

Misdemeanor charges can have serious consequences. I am committed to protecting my clients’ rights in every case, no matter what the charges. Even a misdemeanor charge can drastically affect one’s future.

At the Law Offices of Dean Johnson, I provide extensive, aggressive defense for misdemeanor charges in the areas of Redwood City, San Mateo and Santa Clara. I also provide unique strategic analysis for cases, including:

  • Petty theft
  • Receiving stolen property
  • Minor drug crimes
  • Shoplifting
  • Destruction of property
  • Harassment
  • Disorderly conduct

Major Consequences For Minor Charges

California law places major consequences on misdemeanor charges. Depending on the situation, you may be facing up to one year in jail and expensive fines. The conviction can stay on your record, affecting future educational and career opportunities.

As a nationally recognized lawyer, I have represented countless people who have been charged with misdemeanors, including minors and young adults. I understand the emotional and financial hardships associated with misdemeanor charges. I can evaluate your situation from every angle. I can build an aggressive defense strategy to help protect your ability to get a job, join the military or get accepted into college.

Cleaning Up Your Criminal Record

California law gives persons who have been convicted of crimes the right, in many cases, to clear their criminal records. This is called “expungement.” At the Law Offices of Dean Johnson, I also provide effective expungement representation. I understand the negative effect that convictions can have on a person’s record. They can affect schooling options and career goals.

My law firm has represented clients with multiple misdemeanor and felony convictions. I understand how to get most — if not all — expunged. I never give up fighting for justice for my clients.
