Felonies are grave crimes, such as murder, rape, robbery, arson, and major drug trafficking, among others. These offenses typically carry harsher penalties, including lengthy imprisonment, substantial fines, and, in some jurisdictions, even the death penalty. Beyond that, felony convictions, even with a grant of probation, can constitute strikes, can carry lifetime registration requirements, and can negatively affect a person’s employment prospects for the rest of his or her life. The primary goal in a felony case is to make it go away. That can sometimes be accomplished by convincing the prosecutor not to file the case in the first place; or, once the case is filed, it can be accomplished by litigating the case to the point that a prosecutor, judge or jury determines that it cannot be proven beyond a reasonable doubt. Given the gravity of felonies, this practice area significantly impacts individuals’ lives and society as a whole and requires an attorney to have exceptional legal expertise and strategic prowess. A fair and efficient legal process in the felonies practice area is essential for maintaining public safety, protecting the rights of the accused, and upholding the fundamental principles of the criminal justice system.
