Felony Evading Reduced to Misdemeanor

Some people falsely believe that if law enforcement is behind them, they simply need to get away. But the hard truth is that the best way to practically deal with the criminal justice system is to find and employ an experienced criminal defense attorney.

Attorney Silver saw the opportunity to help this client and after convincing him to undergo 90 days of in-patient alcohol treatment, he negotiated to reduce the charge from a felony to a misdemeanor and spared his client from time behind bars.
