Criminal Defense in Hillsdale MO - starting at $450


We specialize in Hillsdale MO criminal defense matters!!  Our firm will answer all your questions, fully describe your range of options and rights, and help guide you through the entire process!

The primary objective will be to determine the best defense strategy for your particular case.  This will involve a thorough analysis of the facts, and an examination of the manner in which the arresting police officer conducted him or herself.


As a result, we are often able to get the charges dismissed, or in some situations we can get the charges reduced to a lesser offense (so that it does not show up on your record).  All you have to do is give us a call!!  We will start to work on your case right away!

The alternative is that you represent yourself.  But this usually results in a guilty plea.  This will in turn allow the judge to potentially sentence you to jail time or assess a large fine.  In addition, a guilty plea will allow the state of Missouri to put the charge on your permanent record as a criminal conviction.  So whenever an entity runs a background check on you, it will show up (and this could cause big problems when applying for a job, renting an apartment, or going to government benefits).
