Kinloch MO Criminal Defense Lawyer - just $450
IS IT REALLY THAT BIG OF A DEAL TO HIRE AN ATTORNEY?
1. Most people actually do not retain legal counsel when charged with a crime. They roll the dice, and act as their own attorney. But the risk is very high when you do this. Because the court will not give you any leniency just because you didn’t go to law school. They will expect you to understand the legal parameters of your case inside and out.
2. But an experienced lawyer will know how to maneuver his or her way through the criminal justice system (and will likely have a good relationship with the prosecutor and judge).
3. And if you hire an affordable attorney, they should be able to perform their services at a reasonable fee. For instance, we only charge $450 for most St Louis area misdemeanors.
4. A good attorney will often be able to get the charge reduced to a lesser infraction (so that nothing shows up on your record), and in some situations, we can even get the charges dismissed.
PLEADING GUILTY IS NOT YOUR BEST OPTION!!
SO WHAT WILL HAPPEN IF I END UP PLEADING GUILTY?
1. It will become a part of your permanent record
2. Once it is on your record, anyone wishing to run a criminal background check will see it
3. This can have a tremendous impact on your future (like a job prospect, or an apartment, or a government benefit)
WHAT ARE SOME THE BIGGEST DIFFERENCES BETWEEN A FELONY AND A MISDEMEANOR?
1. Misdemeanors are serious matters, but felonies are reserved for alleged criminal behavior that can cause serious harm to people or property
2. As a result, felonies will often come with significant jail sentences and high fines
