Christopher J. Drewniak, Esquire represents individuals charged with felonies and misdemeanors. Mr. Drewniak has more than 20 years of experience defending these types of cases.

Misdemeanors are crimes that are typically punishable by a fine or by incarceration for a period of less than one year. A misdemeanor is usually charged against someone by a written complaint, or “information.” While a misdemeanor may be considered minor in the eyes of the law, Mr. Drewniak recognizes that being accused of any crime, even a misdemeanor, can have a major impact on one’s life. Especially, if a conviction could deprive you of your freedom for any period of time, Mr. Drewniak strongly recommends that an individual charged with a misdemeanor seek the advice of an experienced criminal defense attorney. A felony is reserved for the most serious types of crimes.

A felony is typically any crime that may be punishable by more than a year’s imprisonment or, in the worst cases, death. In light of the serious nature of such offenses, it is highly recommended that an individual charged with such crimes immediately retain a lawyer immediately to ensure that his or her interests are adequately represented. Mr. Drewniak is available to discuss your case with you.
