St Charles County MO Criminal Defense Lawyer - just $450
WHAT IS THE REAL ADVANTAGE IN HIRING AN ATTORNEY?
1. Having a legal advocate on your side (and fighting for your rights) is going to be the key in getting a favorable outcome with regards to your criminal charges! Because if you decide to represent yourself, the court will treat you just as if you had gone to law school.
2. A good attorney can usually get the charges reduced to a lesser offense (so that nothing bad shows up on your record); and in some limited situations, we can even get the charges dismissed (but that is going to depend on the specific facts of your case)
3. And if you are interacting with an affordable attorney, he or she should be able to accomplish these tasks at a reasonable rate! For instance, we only ask $450 to defend on St Louis misdemeanors.
PLEADING GUILTY IS NOT YOUR BEST OPTION!!
IF I PLEAD GUILTY, WILL THERE BE CONSEQUENCES?
1. Yes, there will be! To begin with, a plea of guilty will allow the state of Missouri to put the charge on your permanent record as a criminal conviction
2. This means that it will be accessible to anyone wishing to run a simple background check
3. And as you might guess, this will have a horrible impact on whether or not you get a job (or rent an apartment, or receive a student loan, or any other number of things)
WHAT ARE THE MAIN DIFFERENCES BETWEEN A FELONY AND A MISDEMEANOR?
1. While misdemeanors will come with stiff jail sentences and fines, felonies are far more severe in doling out punishment
2. Only the state can issue a felony charge; the individual municipalities around St Louis are limited to charging you with a misdemeanor
