Only $450 - Flordell Hills MO Misdemeanor Criminal Defense
If you’ve been charged with a crime in or near Flordell Hills MO, then you should give us a call immediately! The sooner we can get to work on your case, the better!!
Why? Because if you wait until the last minute (like the night before your court hearing), then we won’t have a whole lot of time to work something out with the prosecutor. Because our main goal is to make sure that the criminal charge (whether it is marijuana possession, trespassing, theft, or something else) does not permanently damage your future!
PLEADING GUILTY IS NOT YOUR BEST OPTION!!
We do this primarily through a negotiation with the local prosecutor. Often times, we can get the charge reduced to a lesser offense (like “littering,” which does not become a part of your record). And in some cases, the prosecutor is willing to recommend a Suspended Imposition of Sentence (SIS). This entails a probationary period, usually one to two years in length, and if you stay out of trouble during this time, the charges drop off as if they never existed.
But if you decide to forgo the idea of getting an attorney to help you out, and you would rather represent yourself, then you should know that most folks end up pleading guilty to the charge. And when this happens, it will go on your permanent record. This will in turn have a substantially negative impact on your future, because most places run background checks nowadays. So if you are applying for a job, renting an apartment, or taking out a student loan, you could get screened out as a candidate.
