While not as serious as felonies, misdemeanors still have significant repercussions on people’s lives, such as probation, driving revocation, restitution, fines and jail time with a maximum penalty of two years in county jail. Community service is frequently an aspect of the sentence for those found guilty of a misdemeanor. Misdemeanors include, but are not limited to the following criminal activities:

  • Misdemeanor Theft (less than $500)
  • Assault
  • Some weapon Offenses
  • Harassment
  • Marijuana possession (less than 8 oz)
  • Indecent Exposure
  • Criminal Trespass
  • Disorderly Conduct

Over 30 percent of our practice is the defense of misdemeanor charges, most commonly DUI/DWAI charges.

“I had hired David in 2019 for a misdemeanor, he helped lessen the sentence. He was very informative, clear, and easy to contact. he took a sincere interest in my case and even after a year of being on probation I was able to contact him and he helped me get off of probation. He was able to get my case resolved within less than a week of me contacting him. I would highly recommend David to anyone seeking legal assistance.”



David helped my brother resolve a case that was dragging on and on with a public defender within 10 days of me reaching out to him (and got a much better deal for my brother). Worth the money and is very nice to work with!

David Moorhead was a miracle worker. We hired him to finish a case that kept going on and on for years by an overworked public defender. He got it done in days. Not only did he get it done in days, he went beyond what we hired him to do and got a way better agreement than we anticipated. I can’t recommend him enough.

David Moorhead exceeded my expectations. He was very knowledgeable and knew exactly how to manage my case and how to speak to the DA to get the outcome I desired. I was amazed at the outcome of my case. David made it quick, simple and painless. I would recommend him over and over again to anyone needing legal assistance.
