Criminal Defense in Sycamore Hills MO - starting at $450
Do you have a pending criminal matter in Sycamore Hills MO? If so, do you understand how the criminal justice system works (and what you can expect)? Are you familiar with your rights and options? Do you know what will happen if you were to plead guilty to the charge? Do you know what a good attorney can do for you in this kind of situation?
Most people do not hire an attorney to help them in a criminal matter (whether it is in Sycamore Hills MO, or somewhere else in the St Louis area). Many times this is because they simply cannot afford to hire a lawyer (and the fact of the matter is, law firms generally charge fees that are way too high).
PLEADING GUILTY IS NOT YOUR BEST OPTION
But the secondary reason for not hiring an attorney has to do with something I find mind-boggling. This is because most folks honestly believe that getting charged with a misdemeanor is “no big deal,” or that “nothing bad will come of it.” Nothing could be further from the truth!!
So if you decide to plead guilty to the charge, it will end up as a criminal conviction on your permanent record. This will enable anyone to see it if they choose to run a background check on you. Who would run such a check? Potential employers, landlords, government agencies… the list is lengthy.
But we have a much different plan in mind for you! We will examine all the relevant facts, determine the best course of action, and defend your rights to the fullest!! This may result in a dismissal of the charges, or we can sometimes get the charge reduced to a lesser offense. Either way, this is far better than pleading guilty!!
