Criminal Defense in Normandy MO - starting at $450
Have you recently received a criminal charge in Normandy MO? If so, are you familiar with your rights and options? Do you know what will happen if you plead guilty? Do you know what sort of benefits come with hiring a good defense attorney?
These are good questions to ask when faced with a criminal charge!! Because retaining a Normandy MO criminal defense attorney is the best route to go!!
Why? Because when people represent themselves, they normally wind up pleading guilty. This may seem like the easiest and least painful option, but it is the long term consequences of this decision that most folks aren’t aware of!!
PLEADING GUILTY IS NOT YOUR BEST OPTION
A guilty plea will allow the state of Missouri to put the charge on your permanent record. Once this is done, any one will be able to see it by simply running a criminal background check. So if you were to apply for a job in the future, the employer is almost certainly going to run the check, see the conviction, and screen you out as a candidate. The same thing would very likely occur when you go to rent an apartment, take out a loan, or apply for government benefits.
But we have a better plan in mind!! We will examine all the facts of your case, get you the best possible outcome (whether it is a dismissal or a reduction of the charges), and keep your record clean and clear!!
