Criminal Defense in Franklin County MO - starting at $450
There are any number of crimes that Franklin County MO can charge someone with, and if you do not retain an attorney to help you out, then there is a very good likelihood that you will end up pleading guilty.
And if this happens, then the judge has the option of sentencing you to jail time and a large fine. In addition, pleading guilty will result in the matter attaching to your permanent record as a criminal conviction.
PLEADING GUILTY IS NOT YOUR BEST OPTION
This will in turn make matters very difficult for you when you try to rent an apartment, apply for a job, secure a student loan, or take out government benefits. Why? Because each of these entities will run a criminal background check on you. And when they see the Franklin County MO conviction, you will likely be screened out as a candidate (for the job, the apartment, the loan, or the benefit).
But it does not have to go this way!! We have a much better route for you to take! We want to examine all the pertinent facts of your case, figure out the best legal strategy, and help guide you towards the best possible outcome!
Sometimes this will involve a dismissal of the charges, other times it will result in a reduction of the charges to a lesser offense. Either way, it is far better than trying to represent yourself!!
