Misdemeanors vs. Felonies

We Defend the Mentally Ill, No Matter the Charges

If you or a loved one with mental illness has been accused of a misdemeanor or felony, the consequences can be serious. Attorney Bernardo Garcia can help you or your family member through the process of litigation.  Unlike large law firms, Mr. Garcia is experienced with the options offered for the mentally ill in the Arizona justice system. Bernardo offers personal attention to your case, no matter how large or small. Because of the general lack of understanding for the mentally ill, they can rack up a string of small offenses. You need a trusted advisor on your side. The seriousness of criminal charges will vary, depending on the circumstances.  For example, crimes involving DUI/DWI or arson can be classified as misdemeanors or felonies, depending on the circumstances of the crime.  Other crimes, such as robbery or sexual assault, are classified as felonies.
