Irvine, CA Misdemeanor Attorney

A misdemeanor is generally considered to be a lesser offense than a felony. Often the penalty for a misdemeanor is a monetary fine. Incarceration for a misdemeanor is generally less than one year. 

Examples of misdemeanors are: 

  • Simple drug possession
  • Vandalism
  • Trespass
  • Disorderly conduct
  • Reckless driving
  • Public intoxication
  • Simple assault
  • Prostitution
  • Petty theft
  • Shoplifting
  • Drunk driving
  • Loaded firearm in a public place
  • Probation violation
  • Illegal gambling
  • Receipt of stolen property
  • Violation of a domestic violence order
  • Domestic violence 

Misdemeanors should be taken seriously by the accused because conviction of a misdemeanor will give you a criminal record. 

Mr. McDonald has been practicing in the area of criminal law since 1990 and can provide the capable legal representation to protect your rights and fight your charges. As a sole practitioner, he offers individualized service to all his clients. The firm serves prospective clients in Irvine, CA and Orange County. Misdemeanor cases rarely go as far as a jury trial, but when the stakes are high -- such as keeping some license to work or drive, a trial is sometimes necessary to clear you of all charges. We have handled thousands of misdemeanors and taken quite a few to juries. 

Our clients almost never serve time in jail following a misdemeanor conviction, and all of our misdemeanor clients who do suffer a conviction eventually return to have their conviction expunged.
