St Ann MO Criminal Defense Lawyer - just $450
WHAT ARE THE REAL BENEFITS TO HIRING AN ATTORNEY ON MY CRIMINAL CHARGE?
1. An experienced lawyer will know how to get things done (and probably be on a first-name basis with both the prosecutor and judge). He or she will understand the ins and outs of the criminal court system. And since the main job of your legal advocate is to ensure that you receive the best possible outcome, he or she will know how to negotiate a deal with the local prosecutor.
2. For instance, we can very frequently get your charges reduced to a lesser infraction (so that nothing bad shows up on your record). And in some situations, we can actually get the charges thrown out altogether (but this will depend greatly on the facts of your particular case).
PLEADING GUILTY IS NOT YOUR BEST OPTION!!
WHAT WOULD THE CONSEQUENCES BE OF PLEADING GUILTY?
1. It would go straight onto your permanent record as a criminal conviction
2. Anyone would thereafter be able to see it by simply running a background check
3. So if you apply for a job, or rent an apartment, or take out government assistance, a background check will very likely be run (and you’ll almost assuredly be screened out as a potential candidate)
WHAT ARE THE BIGGEST DIFFERENCES BETWEEN A FELONY AND A MISDEMEANOR?
1. If you are convicted of a felony, you could be facing some serious jail time and high fines
2. Only the state can issue a felony; area muni’s are limited to misdemeanor charges only
