Misdemeanor Charges: Building A Strong Defense Can Make All The Difference

Make no mistake about it: just because you were charged with an offense that is considered a misdemeanor in Colorado, it does not mean you can take it lightly. All three classes of misdemeanors in the state can result in jail time or a hefty fine. Even traffic infractions can lead to the loss of your driver's license and other negative consequences if they are not properly handled.
