Felonies in Delaware

Felony crimes carry harsher penalties than misdemeanors. Delaware has several felony classifications, ranging from Class A felonies, which are the most serious, to Class G felonies. Our firm represents clients charged with a wide range of felonies.

We represent clients charged with felonies that include:

  • DUI
  • Drug possession or sale
  • Assault
  • Burglary
  • Robbery

The specific legal penalties for conviction depend on the crime and the felony classification. The possible penalties for a felony conviction include a jail or prison sentence, house arrest, probation, large fines, and restitution to the victim. After release from jail, those with a permanent criminal record often find it difficult to obtain employment, housing, and loan opportunities.

Benefit from the Advice of a Former Prosecutor

Due to the seriousness of a felony conviction, it is important to seek legal advice from experienced felony defense lawyers in Delaware. Our firm has unique insight into the prosecution's side of the legal system because a member of our team is a former prosecutor. We can use this knowledge and experience on your behalf and for your benefit.

Please contact us at (302) 663-7975 to discuss your case with a criminal defense attorney.
