Only $450 - Wellston MO Misdemeanor Criminal Defense


We offer experienced and affordable criminal defense for misdemeanor charges in Wellston MO.  Our fees for a typical case of this nature are $450.  But the most important point to make is that you should not try and represent yourself.

Why?  Because most folks do nothing more than plead guilty to the charge.  Why would someone do this?  There are a variety of reasons, but more often than not, the individual simply could not afford the fees that most attorneys charge.  And then there are some people who (incorrectly) believe that pleading guilty is “no big deal”.


But if you decide to go this route, there are a few things you should know:  1) a guilty plea will allow the state of Missouri to place the conviction on your permanent record;  2) a criminal conviction on your permanent record will make things very difficult for you in the future if you when applying for a job, renting an apartment, taking out a student or business loan, or in securing governmental benefits.

The good news is that things do not have to go this way!!  Our staff will review all the facts of your case, determine the best defense strategy for your particular case, and help to ensure that you receive the best possible outcome.  In many cases, we are able to work out a deal with the local prosecutor (in which the charge is reduced to something minor, so that nothing negative appears on your record);  and sometimes, we can even get the charges dropped altogether!
