Criminal Defense in University City MO - starting at $450


University City MO might be a smaller municipality, but they do hand out quite a few misdemeanor charges!!  And it is key that a criminal charge be handled correctly!  Because otherwise you are risking long term consequences (that may not be readily apparent to you right now).

For instance, if you plead guilty to a criminal charge, that will end up on your permanent record.  And once it is on your permanent record, it will stay there forever (hence the word “permanent”).  A criminal conviction showing up on your record will have negative repercussions on your life for a long time.  For example, a simple background check will reveal the conviction, and any potential employers could easily screen you out as a result (the same would be true for an apartment, student loan, or government benefit).


So if you’d rather avoid all of that negativity, then you should definitely give us a call!!  We will examine all the facts of your case, figure out the best defense strategy, and put you in the best possible position we can!  This might result in a dismissal of the charges, or often we can get the charges reduced to a lesser offense (so that nothing shows up on your record).  Either way, it is far better than simply pleading guilty!
