When You Are Facing Felony Charges

If you have been accused of a felony, you are in serious trouble. You need a serious defense.

The key difference between felonies and other types of crimes is in the severity of the penalties that come with a conviction. If you are convicted of a felony, you will be sentenced to at least a year behind bars. But even after you have served your time, paid your fines and fulfilled any other requirements, your conviction will continue to drag you down, interfering with your personal and professional life for many years to come.

A skilled and experienced criminal defense lawyer can help you understand the strategies and procedures that can allow you to minimize these long-term consequences or even beat the charges.

I am attorney Patrick J. Fugina, and for more than 30 years I have been representing people accused of crimes, protecting their rights and defending their futures. I have experience defending people from a variety of felony charges, including:

  • Drug trafficking
  • Domestic assault
  • Threats of violence
  • Burglary
  • Forgery and fraud
  • Sex offenses

Respect And Professionalism

Prosecutors and law enforcement can be intimidating, and can easily pressure people into accepting bad deals or otherwise doing things that are not in their best interests. It's important to have a professional on your side to watch out for you and keep your best interests at heart.

When you are my client, I treat you with respect and give your case the time and hard work it — and you — deserves. I help you understand the strategies and procedures that can protect your rights, and then develop a plan to attack the prosecution's case against you. When the time comes, I represent you in hearings and at trial, arguing on your behalf.
