Criminal Defense in Manchester MO - starting at $450
Have you received a criminal charge in Manchester MO (like trespassing, marijuana possession, or disturbing the peace)? Do you fully understand what will happen if you decide to plead guilty? Are you aware of the consequences this will bring to your life? Are you familiar with what a defense attorney can do for you?
These are excellent questions to ask when you’ve been charged with a crime (in any municipality). But how you decide to handle the criminal matter in Manchester MO is one of the biggest decisions you’ll ever make in your life.
PLEADING GUILTY IS NOT YOUR BEST OPTION
Why? Because most people who represent themselves end up pleading guilty to the charge. This will allow the state of Missouri to place it on your permanent record. And the long term consequences of this are substantial, because anyone who runs a background check will see the conviction (which will have a very negative impact on whether or not you get a job, rent an apartment, or receive government benefits).
All you need to do in order to avoid all of this is give us a call!! We will examine all the facts of your case, and figure out the best defense strategy (to put you in the best position thereafter). Sometimes this will involve a dismissal of the charges, and other time it will result in a reduction of the charges (either of which is far better than you simply pleading guilty!!
