Felony Crimes

A felony crime is generally punished by a year or more in jail, such as murder, manslaughter, aggravated assault or burglary. Felonies are extremely serious and have serious consequences, such as high fines and serving time in prison. Additionally, convictions of felonies will impact your future. You will have to put convictions on job applications, housing applications, and any applications for professional certifications. Springer Law Office, PLLC, provides criminal defense representation across the area. The one key to handling these charges is getting an attorney FAST. Don’t delay in contacting us if you need legal advice or representation. Francis Springer will ensure your case is handled in the best way it can.


Misdemeanors are crimes punishable by less than a year in jail, such as domestic violence, simple assault, shoplifting or trespassing. Though they are less serious than felony crimes, a conviction for a misdemeanor can affect future opportunities. You may have to pay a fine and spend time in jail. Many people try to represent themselves in these cases, only to find they get a harsh penalty if convicted. Francis Springer will represent you and ensure you get a fair trial and your rights are protected.


Currently, there is a renewed emphasis upon prosecuting DUIs. A DUI can be a felony or a misdemeanor. A conviction can be more damaging than you may think. In addition to fines and jail time, you may lose your driving privileges. Future employment and professional opportunities may be hindered to those with DUI convictions. Francis Springer will provide you representation to ensure a fair process in the system.


If you have a criminal conviction, you may be able to get that wiped off your official record. This may help in getting future employment, housing, and professional licenses. The laws for expungements are specific, so check today to see if this may apply to you. Francis Springer can get this handled for you.

Asset Forfeiture

The law allows the state to seize your personal property if you are accused of committing certain crimes. They may take your cash, car, boat, or house under certain circumstances. And you don’t have to be convicted of a crime for these to be taken from you forever. If you are subject to Asset Forfeiture, it’s extremely important you get a lawyer immediately. If you don’t address this within a certain time, you lose everything. Francis Springer stands ready to go to work for you to regain your property!
