South St Louis County MO Criminal Defense Lawyer - just $450
HOW CAN I EXPECT TO BENEFIT FROM HIRING A DEFENSE ATTORNEY?
1. If you are going to represent yourself, there are a few things you should be made aware of first. To begin with, most people in this situation end up doing nothing more than pleading guilty to the charge. Not because they are foolish; it’s because they don’t realize there is even another alternative available to them.
2. But an experienced attorney can usually get the charges reduced to a lesser offense (so that nothing bad shows up on your record).
3. And if you are dealing with an affordable law firm, then these services should be performed at a reasonable rate. We only ask for $450 on St Louis misdemeanors.
PLEADING GUILTY IS NOT YOUR BEST OPTION!!
WHAT IF I JUST PLEAD GUILTY TO THE CHARGES?
1. It will go directly on your permanent record
2. This will enable anyone to run a criminal background check on you, and see it
3. So when you apply for a job in the future, your potential employer could easily screen you out as a candidate. The same would be true for landlords and government agencies that dispense certain funds.
ARE THERE BIG DIFFERENCES BETWEEN A FELONY AND A MISDEMEANOR?
1. Only the state and federal governments can issue a felony; the smaller municipalities in and around St Louis are limited to issuing misdemeanors
2. Felonies will come with much higher fines and lengthier jail sentences
