Criminal Defense in Town and Country MO - starting at $450
Misdemeanor charges in Town and Country MO should be taken very seriously! T&C is a very conservative municipality, and therefore not terribly lenient when it comes to criminal charges within its jurisdiction.
Therefore, it is completely in your best interest to hire a good criminal defense attorney to help you out! Why? Because most people do nothing more than plead guilty to the charge. They do this because either: 1) they cannot afford an attorney (and Town and Country MO does not provide folks with a public defender); 2) they believe that a misdemeanor charge “isn’t that big of a deal”
PLEADING GUILTY IS NOT YOUR BEST OPTION
This second reason for not hiring a Town and Country MO criminal defense attorney is the most troubling. Because if you plead guilty to the charge, then it will become a part of your permanent record. This means that anyone wishing to run a background check on you will see it. And that could cause tremendous harm in your future ability to gain employment, rent an apartment, or to receive government benefits.
But we have a much different plan in mind!! We want to defend your rights to the fullest, and put you in the best position possible! This might result in a dismissal of the charges, or we might be able to get the charges reduced to a lesser offense. Either way, it is far better than simply pleading guilty!!
