Criminal Defense in Richmond Heights MO - starting at $450
A Richmond Heights MO criminal charge (misdemeanor) can cause you a good deal of trouble if it is not handled correctly.
Like most things in life, if you do not properly address the issue, then it will have a tendency to get out of hand quickly. The same is true for criminal charges in Richmond Heights MO. But for whatever reason, most people do not retain the services of a defense attorney. And they make this decision unaware of the heavy consequences that will follow them well into the future!!
PLEADING GUILTY IS NOT YOUR BEST OPTION
For instance, if you are charged with trespassing or possession of drug paraphernalia, but you choose to plead guilty to both, then you will end up having two criminal convictions slapped onto your permanent record (forever). This will have a tremendous impact on your ability to gain employment (because most employers run background checks on all potential employees), rent an apartment or take out a student loan, or to receive governmental benefits (because state and federal law prohibit convicted criminals from receiving benefits).
But we have a much better plan in mind!! We will thoroughly describe your range of options, examine the facts of you case, and answer all your questions! Our goal is to put you in the best position possible! That may result in a dismissal of the charges, or it could be that the charges get reduced to a lesser offense. Either way, that is a far better outcome than simply pleading guilty!!
