Criminal Defense in Webster Groves MO - starting at $450
Are you trying to figure out what to do with your Webster Groves MO criminal charge? Are you aware of your Constitutional rights, and your full range of options? Do you know what benefits you receive by hiring an experienced criminal defense lawyer? And if you are thinking about pleading guilty, do you know what sort of long term consequences you can expect from such a decision?
Let’s start with the last question first: if you plead guilty to a misdemeanor in Webster Groves MO, then it will become a part of your permanent record. It will show up as a criminal conviction for the rest of your life.Pleading Guilty Is Not Your Best Option!!
Why is that a big deal? Because most potential employers run background checks on all applicants. And if they see a criminal record, then you will likely be screened out as a candidate. The same would be true of a landlord or government agency.
So what’s the alternative? Well, if you hired us, we would closely examine all the facts of your case to determine the best defense strategy. As a result, we might be able to get the charges dismissed (especially if your rights were violated), or we might be in a position to get the charges reduced to a minor infraction (so that nothing negative shows up on your record). Either way, this is a far better outcome than simply pleading guilty!!
