Only $450 - Northwoods MO Misdemeanor Criminal Defense
When facing criminal charges, you really have only two options: 1) represent yourself (and act as your own attorney); 2) hire an experienced St Louis criminal defense lawyer.
Hiring an attorney will increase your chances of receiving a favorable outcome. How so? Our team will closely examine all the pertinent facts of your case to see if we can get the charges dismissed (this is usually the case if the arresting officer violated your Constitutional rights). In some instances, we can even get the charge reduced to a lesser offense (so that nothing negative goes onto your permanent record). Or in the alternative, we can take the case to trial.Pleading Guilty Is Not Your Best Option!!
But if you choose to instead represent yourself (and not seek the aid of an attorney) then you should be made aware of the fact that most people in that kind of situation do nothing more than plead guilty to the charge as is. This is usually because they have no idea what their rights are, what their options might be, and they are in a rush to get out of court as soon as possible.
However, a plea of guilt will allow the state to put the matter on your record forever. This will make things very difficult for you when applying for a job, renting an apartment, or even taking out a student loan. Why? Because most of these entities will run a background check on you (and see the conviction plain as day).
But there is a much better way to handle this situation!! And it starts by getting in touch with us! So give us a call, and we will go from there!
