Crestwood MO Criminal Defense Lawyer - just $450
CAN YOU LIST SOME OF THE BENEFITS OF HIRING A DEFENSE LAWYER TO HELP ME?
1. The most obvious thing to point out is that a good attorney will have a much better chance at getting the charges reduced to a lesser offense (or in some situations, he/she can even get it thrown out altogether)
2. But if you choose to represent yourself, then you should know that the court will not give you any special treatment just because you didn’t go to law school. So if you throw yourself at the mercy of the judge, he/she will likely respond with, “Go hire an attorney!”
3. And the good news is that hiring us will not break the bank! We only charge $450 for most misdemeanors in the St Louis area.
PLEADING GUILTY IS NOT YOUR BEST OPTION!!
WHAT WILL THE OUTCOME BE IF I CHOOSE TO PLEAD GUILTY?
1. This first thing you should know about pleading guilty is that the charge will become a part of your permanent record (and show up as a criminal conviction)
2. This is important to point out because a simple background check will reveal this conviction
3. So if you are applying for a job in the future, your potential employer will be able to see it. This would also be true for landlords, banks, and governmental agencies.
CAN YOU DESCRIBE SOME OF THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN A FELONY AND A MISDEMEANOR?
1. To begin with, a misdemeanor charge can carry a potential jail sentence and fine; but with a felony, you are facing the potential of multiple years in jail and a substantial fine
2. But only the state and feds can issue a felony; municipalities are limited to charging you with simple misdemeanors
