Protecting clients for more than 18 years
The Law Office of Austin J. Freeley represents clients in the following criminal matters:

Felonies
If you have been charged with a felony, it is essential to have an experienced criminal defense attorney zealously defend you in court. Felonies are extremely serious crimes — murder, rape, armed robbery, credit card fraud and burglary — and have serious consequences. A convicted felon will be sentenced to serve at least one year in a state or federal prison and may be committed for life. In addition, convicted felons are stripped of many of the rights guaranteed to American citizens, including the right to vote, the right to travel out of the country and the right to own a gun. Convicted felons also have to disclose their crimes on job applications and can be deported if they are not American citizens.

How you handle a felony charge can make the difference between life and death. The Law Office of Austin J. Freeley has more than 18 years of experience handling felony charges and will work to attain the best possible result for you.

Misdemeanors
Misdemeanors are crimes punishable by less than one year in prison and may include such offenses as disorderly conduct, simple assault, shoplifting and trespassing. Although misdemeanors are less serious than felonies, having a misdemeanor conviction on your criminal record can limit your employment options and require you to spend time in jail. Let the Law Office of Austin J. Freeley represent you and ensure that you receive a fair trial.
