Creve Coeur MO Criminal Defense Lawyer - just $450

Only $450 For Most Creve Coeur Missouri Misdemeanor Criminal Defense What Are the Advantages in Hiring a Defense Attorney to Handle My Charge?
  1. Many people believe that the best route to take when charged with a criminal offense is to represent themselves (to save money, or because they think that a misdemeanor is “no big deal”). But if you choose this route, then you should be aware of the fact that the court will not give you any special treatment just because are not a lawyer. In fact, most judges will smirk when you tell them that you don’t know how the criminal justice system works (I have heard many a judge respond with, “Then go hire an attorney!”)
  2. But a good attorney can almost always work out some sort of favorable deal on your behalf with the local prosecutor. This often times results in a reduction of the charges, or in some cases, a complete dismissal.
  3. And in our opinion, these services should be performed at a reasonable cost – we only charge $450 for most misdemeanors in the St Louis area!
Can You Discuss the Potential Consequences of Pleading Guilty to the Charge?
  1. First and foremost, a guilty plea will ensure that the charge ends up on your permanent record (as a criminal conviction)
  2. The worst part about this is that anyone wishing to perform a background check will see it plain as day
  3. This can result in some negative consequences for you if that someone is a potential employer, landlord, lending institution, or government agency
What Are the Main Differences Between a Felony and a Misdemeanor?
  1. The state and federal governments are the only entities that can issue a felony (municipalities can only charge you with a misdemeanor)
  2. Felonies are reserved for those crimes that the state believes to be much more severe in nature, scope, and degree
