Criminal Defense in St John MO - starting at $450
We can help you with your St John MO criminal charge!! All you need to do is give us a call!
We will examine all the facts of your case, determine the best defense strategy available, and put you in the most favorable position possible. Very often, our efforts result in a reduction of the charges to a lesser offense (so that nothing shows up on your record); and depending on the facts of your case, we can sometimes get the charges dropped altogether (especially if your Constitutional rights were violated).
PLEADING GUILTY IS NOT YOUR BEST OPTION
The other option would be to represent yourself (and therefore not hire an attorney). But most people will end up pleading guilty to the charge when they do this. Unfortunately, this decision will have many long term consequences for you in the future.
For instance, a guilty plea will put the charge on your permanent record as a criminal conviction. Why is this bad? Because once the conviction is on your record, it will stay there forever. And if anyone does a criminal background check on you (like a potential employer, a landlord, a government agency), then you will likely be screened out as a candidate (for the job, the apartment, or the benefit).
Would you rather avoid this negativity? Then you should get in touch with us right away!! You can shoot us a text, send us an email, give us a call, or fill out an online form. The sooner you reach out to us, the better!!
