Protecting clients for more than 20 years
Jeff D. Nicholson represents clients in the following criminal matters:
If you have been charged with a felony, it is essential that you retain an experienced criminal defense attorney to zealously defend you in court. Felonies are the most serious crimes — such as murder, rape, armed robbery, credit card fraud and burglary. Felony convictions also have the most serious consequences. A person convicted of a felony is sentenced to serve at least one year in state or federal prison, and may be committed for life. In addition, convicted felons are stripped of many of the rights guaranteed to American citizens, including the right to vote, the right to travel out of the country and the right to own a gun. Convicted felons also have to disclose their crimes on job applications and can be deported if they are not American citizens.
How your felony charge is defended can make the difference between life and death for you. Jeff D. Nicholson has more than 20 years of experience handling felony charges, and is committed to attaining the best possible outcome for you.
Misdemeanors are crimes such as disorderly conduct, simple assault, shoplifting and trespassing that are punishable by less than a year in prison.

Ensure that you receive a fair trial by letting Jeff D. Nicholson represent you.
