Criminal Defense in Maplewood MO - starting at $450
If there is one time in your life when you want to engage the services of a good defense attorney, it when you are charged with a crime in Maplewood MO!!
Why? Because most people do not hire an attorney, and as a result, they end up pleading guilty to the charge. When this choice is made, the state will slap the charge onto your permanent record as a criminal conviction. This in turn will mean trouble for you down the road when you apply for a job, or rent an apartment, or take out a student loan (because each of these entities will run a background check on you).
PLEADING GUILTY IS NOT YOUR BEST OPTION
In addition, there is the potential sentence that the court can hand you. Most misdemeanors can come with some period of jail time and a large fine.
But we have a much better plan in mind for you!! We will examine all the facts of your case, determine the best defense strategy for your case, and put you in the best possible future position. Sometimes this will involve a dismissal of the charges; other times it can result in a reduction of the charges to a minor infraction. Either way, this is far better than simply pleading guilty!!
