Misdemeanor Crimes Should Be Taken Seriously
Many people fail to consider the seriousness of misdemeanor crimes. Pleading guilty to a misdemeanor is often seen as the easiest and quickest way to get the charges to go away. However, every conviction results in serious consequences that may not always be apparent at first glance.
Attorney Louis W. Emmi has been helping individuals in Pittsburgh and across western Pennsylvania with misdemeanor and other criminal charges for over 30 years, providing stringent defense. As a former clerk for a criminal court judge and as a current criminal defense lawyer, he has insight into how prosecutors handle these types of cases, as well as what strategies to take to build a strong legal defense on your behalf.
