Misdemeanors Protecting Your Rights, One Case at a Time


Defending Against Misdemeanor Charges in Brevard County, FL Since 2003

While offenses charged as misdemeanors are less serious than felonies, these charges should never be taken lightly. A misdemeanor conviction can result in jail time, fines, probation, and additional court-ordered penalties, as well as a future with a permanent criminal record. Jail time can mean the loss of your job and damage to your reputation. Even probation with long hours of community service can dramatically disrupt your life. Furthermore, a criminal record can easily be accessed on a routine background check by potential employers, landlords, educational institutions, and others, which can harm future opportunities.

Trusted legal representation is essential in any criminal investigation or charges. At Law Offices of Laura D. Siemers, we can aggressively protect your legal rights, ensure that you do not inadvertently make any mistakes that could harm your position, and fight to help you obtain the best possible result. Attorney Laura Siemers brings more than two decades of legal experience to your case, including thousands of hours of courtroom presence and practice.

Contact Our Melbourne Misdemeanor Defense Attorney Today

Our Melbourne misdemeanor defense lawyer knows what the prosecutor must prove in court to convict you of a misdemeanor, and we can examine the evidence to find weaknesses, flaws, and other errors that can benefit your case. For example, in DUI cases, many variables exist to challenge breath test results. These tests often contain errors or are obtained illegally. We can investigate how the officer conducted the test, whether the breathalyzer was calibrated correctly, and other aspects of the arrest as part of our defense strategy.

    She is absolutely brilliant and won my jury trial. I absolutely refused to plead guilty and/or accept a plea deal for something I did not do.
