Criminal Defense in North St Louis County MO - starting at $450


There are many different types of misdemeanors that St Louis County can hand out!  But just because you have been charged with something, that doesn’t mean that the state of Missouri can prove that you are in fact guilty of the crime.  Indeed, proving all the necessary facts is a very high burden placed upon the prosecutor (a burden that he/she may not be able to surmount).

And if you simply pleading guilty to the charge, then the charge will become a part of your permanent record.  When this happens, it will be very difficult to achieve certain things in the future.  For instance, if you were to apply for a job (after pleading guilty to a misdemeanor possession of marijuana charge), the employer will undoubtedly run a criminal background check.  This check will reveal the drug conviction, and you will very likely be screened out as a candidate.


But it does not have to go this way!!  We have a much different plan in mind!  Our team will analyze all the facts of your case, determine the best defense strategy, and get you the best possible outcome!!  Sometimes this will result in a dismissal of the charges, other times it will involve a reduction of the charges.  But either way, it is way better than simply pleading guilty!
