Criminal Defense in Ballwin MO - starting at $450
If you are charged with a misdemeanor in Ballwin MO, then are really only two main ways to deal with it: 1) you can represent yourself at court; 2) you can hire a good Ballwin MO criminal defense attorney.
If you choose #1, then you should know a few things first. A lot of people mistakenly believe that a misdemeanor is no big deal. That even if you plead guilty to it, nothing bad will happen. That the likelihood of actually going to jail is pretty low.
PLEADING GUILTY IS NOT YOUR BEST OPTION
But even if the judge does not sentence you to any jail time (or impose a hefty fine), a criminal conviction on your permanent record will do lasting damage (that you might not be aware of).
For instance, most employers run criminal background checks on potential employees. So if you have a conviction on your record, then chances are high that you’ll be screened out as a candidate. Or if you are trying to rent an apartment, same thing.
But we have a much plan in mind!! Our staff will review the facts of your case, chart a plan of attack, and get you best possible outcome!
