TAMPA MISDEMEANOR ATTORNEY

Adeptly Handling Misdemeanor Charges in Hillsborough & Pinellas Counties

Misdemeanor charges are offenses considered less serious than felonies. A misdemeanor conviction can result in jail time of less than a year, fines, probation, and other penalties ordered by the court. If convicted, you will also face collateral damage, such as a permanent criminal record that can make it difficult to get a job, rent a home, be approved for a loan, and obtain a professional license. That is why you need to fight back with the help of a competent and dedicated Tampa misdemeanor attorney.

In your time of need, turn to Buda Law where you can work with a Tampa misdemeanor defense attorney who has the criminal law experience, knowledge, and determination you need. Attorney Andrew Buda worked as a Pinellas County prosecutor for many years, which means he thoroughly understands how prosecutors think and operate to achieve a conviction. That knowledge and experience can only work to your benefit in strategizing your defense.
