Cool Valley MO Criminal Defense Lawyer - just $450
- If for no other reason than because an experience defense lawyer is going to know how to minimize the impact of the charges leveled against you. If we can assume that you are unfamiliar with how the law works, then chances are you would not have much success in securing a favorable outcome.
- This is because a good attorney will know how to work out a deal with the prosecutor to get the charges reduced to a lesser offense (down to something that will not show up on your record).
- And although most folks can’t afford a high-priced attorney, our firm charges a relatively modest set of fees for our services. For most misdemeanors in the St Louis area, we charge $450.
- This is what most people end up doing (because they aren’t aware of any other possible alternative). But what folks don’t realize is that a plea of guilty will allow the state to put the charge on your permanent record.
- A criminal conviction on your record will muck up your future substantially.
- This is because most potential employers, landlords, lending institutions, and governmental agencies run background checks on applicants.
- A felony charge is reserved for those acts that the state deems highly offensive; misdemeanors are fairly mundane in nature (like a common trespassing)
- Both misdemeanors and felonies can come with jail time and fines; but felonies have much higher potential sentences (lengthier jail time, and much higher fines)
- Only the state can issue a felony; municipalities can only issue misdemeanors
