Only $450 - Hazelwood MO Misdemeanor Criminal Defense


Please do let us help you get a favorable result in your criminal case!  The last thing you want to do is try and take care of this kind of thing on your own.  Representing yourself is certainly your right;  but it almost never ends up good.


Why?  Because most folks do nothing more than plead guilty to the charge.  Here is how it usually works:  you show up to the court hearing;  you stand at the podium when your name is called;  the judge reads the charges leveled against you, and asks how you wish to plead;  you then begin to tell your version of the events;  the judge cuts you off, and says, “I’m not asking you to give me any facts about your case.  If you want to take your case to trial, we can schedule a date.  But right now I’m asking how you plead.”;  you hesitate, and don’t make a sound (because you don’t have a clue what to say);  the judge finally says, “If you plead guilty, you can leave here tonight with a small fine, and no jail time.”;  your heart leaps, as you believe that the judge has bestowed mercy upon you.

But when you plead guilty to the charge, it will go on your permanent record (forever).  This is a very bad thing because if you want to get a job in the future (or rent an apartment, or take out a loan), the potential employer will undoubtedly run a criminal background check.  As a result, the conviction will show up plain as day.  And the employer (or landlord, or government agency) will likely screen you out as a candidate.

But we have a much better plan in mind!!  We will take a close look at all the facts of your case, describe your full range of options, and help to ensure that your record stays clean.  All you need to do is get in touch with us!!
