Sure, some crimes are more serious than the next, but that doesn’t mean that there aren’t consequences of committing –and being convicted of – any type of crime. Have you been charged with a misdemeanor or a felony crime? You need Geller Law on your side.


A misdemeanor charge is given to someone who commits a less severe crime. Examples of misdemeanors include:

  • Simple Assault
  • Simple Marijuana Possession
  • Shoplifting
  • Contributing to the Delinquency of a minor

Misdemeanor charges may result in a penalty of up to 11 months, 29 days in the local penal institution, as well as probation, fines and other consequences.


A felony charge is far more serious than a misdemeanor. There are many different types of felony crimes that you may be charged with, including:

  • Kidnapping
  • Aggregated Assault
  • Possessions of Child Pornography
  • Burglary
  • Manslaughter

Conviction of a felony charge may result in punishment of 1 year to life in prison, as well as parole, probation, and fines. It is imperative that you have a Geller Law by your side if you’ve been charged with a felony crime.
