Criminal Defense in Des Peres MO - starting at $450
The best option available to you when hit with a criminal charge in Des Peres MO is hiring a good criminal defense attorney!!
This is because an experienced lawyer will know how to ensure that you receive the best outcome possible! Sometimes this will involve a dismissal of the charges (depending on the facts of your case; for instance, if the police officer violated your Constitutional rights, there might be grounds to have the case thrown out), and sometimes it results in a reduction of the charges (down to a lesser infraction, so that nothing shows up on your permanent record).Pleading Guilty Is Not Your Best Option!!
Of course, you can always represent yourself. But this almost always results in a guilty plea. And if you plead guilty, you are subjecting yourself to a potential jail sentence and high fine!! In addition, you can also expect the charge becoming a part of your permanent record as a criminal conviction.
This will have a horrible effect upon your ability to get a decent job, rent an apartment, or any application for governmental benefits. Why? Because each of these entities will run a background check before they give you anything. If they see a conviction, they will likely use that as an excuse to screen you out as a candidate!
But it doesn’t have to be this way!! All you need to do is give us a call!! We will start working on your case right away!
