Results And Dedication When You're Facing A Misdemeanor Charge

If you have been charged with a misdemeanor, you could be facing up to a year in jail and significant fines. Though not as serious as a felony, misdemeanor charges can have a considerable impact on your freedom and future.

My name is Daniel P. Dalton, and I founded my firm, Law Office of Daniel P. Dalton, P.C., in 2006. I provide aggressive representation to people in Quad Cities and throughout Illinois who have been charged with misdemeanor charges such as:

  • Battery
  • Domestic battery
  • Possession of drug paraphernalia
  • Drug possession
  • Driving while license suspended or revoked
  • Reckless driving
  • DUI

If this is your second or subsequent felony, the stakes are even higher. To discuss your criminal charges with me in a free consultation, call 309-517-6495.

Fighting Misdemeanor Charges

In Illinois, there are three classes of misdemeanor, each with increasingly harsh penalties:

  • Class A misdemeanor: up to one year in jail and a fine of up to $2,500
  • Class B misdemeanor: up to six months in jail and a fine of up to $1,500
  • Class C misdemeanor: up to 30 days in jail and a fine of up to $1,500

Depending on your criminal history and whether a weapon was used, crimes that are considered misdemeanors may also be charged as felonies. That is why it is so important to have an experienced Rock Island County and Henry County misdemeanor attorney on your side.

When you hire me to represent you, I will review your arrest records and hear your side of the story. If your rights were violated or police errors were made during your arrest, I will fight to have your charges dropped or reduced. If the evidence against you was obtained lawfully, I will negotiate with the prosecutor to obtain a plea bargain that reduces your sentence. However, if your plea bargain is not satisfactory, I am prepared to defend your interests in the courtroom.
