Only $450 - Edmundson MO Misdemeanor Criminal Defense
If you’ve been charged with a criminal offense in Edmundson MO, then you have two choices in dealing with the matter at hand: 1) you can represent yourself; 2) you can hire an experienced St Louis criminal defense lawyer.
When you choose option one, you are obviously on your own. And if you represent yourself (which is your right), the court will treat you as if you were in fact an attorney (if you doubt this, go ahead and try it on your own, and you’ll find out quick enough). This means that you will have to argue your case (and present all evidentiary facts) to the judge by yourself. This also means that you will have to communicate directly with the prosecutor on your own. And any time you ask a question about the law, both of those individuals (the judge and the prosecutor) will tell you repeatedly: “We cannot give you legal advice. If you want legal counsel, go hire an attorney.”
PLEADING GUILTY IS NOT YOUR BEST OPTION!!
So what does a good defense attorney do for you? Well, to begin with, an attorney can most of the time do all necessary work without you having to show up in court at all. A good attorney can work out a deal with the prosecutor to get the charge reduced to a lesser infraction. And a good attorney will know how to work the system to get you the best outcome possible.
The choice is of course yours. But unless you have a solid, knowledgeable lawyer in your corner fighting for you, there is a good chance that things won’t turn out too well for you.
