Criminal Defense in Ellendale MO - starting at $450
Dealing with a criminal charge in Ellendale MO is no laughing matter!! Misdemeanor charges can cause long lasting problems for you if it is not handled correctly.
How so? If you were to plead guilty to the charge, then you are right off the bat subjecting yourself to potential jail time and a large fine!! These consequences can typically be avoided if you hire an experienced Ellendale MO criminal defense attorney!!
PLEADING GUILTY IS NOT YOUR BEST OPTION
But here’s the most negative outcome of pleading guilty: it will allow the state to slap a criminal conviction on your permanent record. This means that anytime a person, business, or entity runs a background check on you, they will see the conviction. And if you are trying to apply for a job, rent an apartment, or receive governmental benefits, you will very likely be screened out as a candidate.
The good news is that it does not have to go this way!! We can examine all the pertinent facts of your case, devise a strong defense strategy, and make sure you get the best outcome possible!! Sometimes this will result in a dismissal of the charges altogether (based on the facts), and other times we can end up getting the charges reduced to a lesser infraction (so that nothing negative shows up on your record)!!
