Criminal Defense in Northampton MO - starting at $450


If you have been charged with a criminal offense in or near Northampton MO, then you should definitely give us a call (as soon as possible)!!

Why?  Because getting in touch with us right away will allow the time to devise a good defense strategy for your case.

Why is this important?  Because most people do not hire a Northampton MO criminal defense attorney to help them, and instead they simply plead guilty to the charge!


Why would someone plead guilty (and not retain legal services)?  Because they believe (incorrectly) that making such a decision will not have any real impact on their future (that it’s “no big deal”).

But nothing could be further from the truth!!  A guilty plea will allow the state of Missouri to put the charge on your permanent record.  This will cause a host of problems in the future.  For example, potential employers will typically run criminal background checks on all applicants.  If you have an unclean record, then it is very likely that you will be screened out as a candidate (the same thing would apply to renting an apartment, taking out a student loan, or receiving government benefits).

We want a completely different outcome for you!!  Our team will thoroughly analyze the facts of your case, figure out the best defense strategy, and help guide you through the entire process from start to finish!!  This may result in a dismissal of the charges, or it may end up with a reduction of the charges to a lesser infraction.  Either way, it is far better than simply pleading guilty!!
