As you know, First Call Legal is the service that you can rely on when you need a company with years of experience to link you with an attorney that can help you and your family. After personal injury calls, one of the most common calls that we get from potential clients is for an attorney that handles criminal law. Unlike a personal injury situation, a criminal situation can be a lot scarier. This isn’t about financial gain, this is about one’s freedom.

Criminal law is bound by the system of legal rules that defines what is classified as a crime. It also demonstrates how the government may prosecute individuals that commit said crimes.

Federal, state, and local governments all have penal codes that explain the specific crimes that they prohibit and the punishments that criminals may face. Individuals who violate federal, state, and local laws may face fines, probation, or incarceration.

While specific criminal acts vary by jurisdiction, they are typically characterized as felonies and misdemeanors. Felonies include more serious crimes, like murder or rape, and are usually punishable by imprisonment of a year or more. Misdemeanors are less serious offenses and are punishable by less than a year of imprisonment or fines.
