Criminal Defense in Kirkwood MO - starting at $450
If you have received a criminal charge in Kirkwood MO, then you really should give us a call right away!!
Why? Because the chances are good that you are not familiar with how the criminal justice system works. And unfortunately, representing yourself will likely result in a plea of guilty.Pleading Guilty Is Not Your Best Option!!
If you plead guilty, then there are a few things you should know about: 1) the judge could potentially sentence you to a period of jail time, and a large fine (some misdemeanors can come with up to one (1) full year of jail); 2) this charge would become a part of your permanent record; 3) this will in turn make life difficult in the future, especially when you apply for a job or apartment (because these entities will run criminal background checks on you).
But we will approach the situation with something much different in mind!! We will closely examine all the facts of your case, and determine the most appropriate legal defense. In some instances, this will involve a dismissal of the charges; in others times, it will result in a reduction of the charges to a much lesser offense (that will not show up on your record). Either way, getting in touch with us is a far better plan!
