When you are facing criminal charges in Pagedale MO, you do not want to face it alone!! We can help you! And make sure that your rights and options are help up!!
PLEADING GUILTY IS NOT YOUR BEST OPTION
Our team will examine all the facts of your case, and make a determination as to the best legal defense strategy for your particular set of circumstances. As a result of our efforts, we may be able to get the charges dropped (especially if there was a Constitutional violation committed by the arresting officer), or in some cases we can get the charges reduced to a lesser offense (something that won’t show up on your record, like “littering”).
Or you could represent yourself. But this alternative almost always results in a guilty plea. People choose to plead guilty all the time because they believe (incorrectly) that no real damage will result from this decision.
But nothing could be further from the truth!! A guilty plea will allow the state to put the charge onto your permanent record. This will cause substantial headaches down the road when you try to get a job, rent an apartment, take out a student loan, or apply for governmental assistance.
