WE KEEP OUR FEES LOW SO THAT EVERYONE CAN HAVE LEGAL REPRESENTATION
When someone receives a ticket in Johnson’s Shut-Ins State Park MO for disturbing the peace, then you are facing a Class B Misdemeanor. This kind of charge can come with up to six (6) months of jail and a fine of $500. But what most people do not realize is that pleading guilty will result in a criminal conviction becoming a part of your permanent record. That means that every time you apply for a job (or try to rent an apartment), it will show up on the criminal background check that will surely be run. Or if you are wanting to secure a student loan in the future, this conviction can serve as a roadblock. Or if you are in the process of trying to get a commercial driver’s license, then the conviction will create a barrier to achieving that goal.
$450 TO TAKE CARE OF MOST MISSOURI CRIMINAL DEFENSE MISDEMEANOR CHARGES
But we have a much better plan in mind for you!! First of all, we will want to determine if any of the facts surrounding your case provide some type of defense that may be asserted on your behalf (to possibly get the charges thrown out). In the alternative, your attorney can work closely with the prosecutor to get the charge reduced to some lesser infraction (like “littering,” which does not even show up on your record). Either way, that is way better than dealing with jail time or a marked up record.
