Only $450 - Berkeley MO Misdemeanor Criminal Defense
If you don’t know what sort of legal rights you have (Constitutional, or otherwise), then you really ought to give us a call about your Berkeley MO criminal charge. We can closely examine the facts of your case, figure out the best defense strategy, and get you the best outcome possible!
What sort of outcome? Our efforts usually result in one of two things: 1) a dismissal of the charges altogether (especially if your rights were in some way violated); 2) getting the charges reduced to a lesser infraction (like “littering,” which does not show up on your record at all).Pleading Guilty Is Not Your Best Option!!
You do of course have the option of taking the case to trial (and forcing the prosecutor to prove the charges against you in court), sometimes that route is the best way to go. But to be perfectly honest, most criminal matters are resolved by way of a deal of some sort (the so-called “plea bargain”).
Or, you could forgo the option of hiring an attorney and representing yourself. But you should know that most folks do nothing more than pleading guilty to the charge when they make the decision to act as their own attorney. Because the judge will almost assuredly make you believe that that is your only/best option available. Why would the judge do such a thing? Because he wants to get home just as quickly as everyone else, and simply pleading guilty makes his job a lot more easier.
But a guilty plea will put the charge on your permanent record. And there it will stay forever. This means that anytime someone runs a background check on you, it will show up. As a result, you might very well miss out on a job opportunity, or an apartment, or a business loan, or a governmental benefit.
The good news is that it doesn’t have to turn out this way at all!! Just get in touch with us as soon as possible, so that we can begin our analysis of your case! You can give us a call, shoot us a text, send us an email, or fill out an online form!
