Wellston MO Criminal Defense Lawyer - just $450
WHAT SORT OF BENEFITS DO I RECEIVE FROM HIRING A DEFENSE ATTORNEY?
1. If you’ve been charged with a crime, then you are facing not only a potential jail sentence and fines; you are also taking a big risk with your future.
2. Why? Because most people who decide to represent themselves do nothing more than plead guilty to the charge. And this is bad for a number of reasons (more on that later).
3. But an experienced attorney will know how to get a good outcome for your case. For instance, most lawyers are adept at getting criminal charges reduced to some lesser infraction (so that nothing negative shows up on your record); and in some cases, we can even get the charges dismissed altogether (this will depend on the facts of your case, like if your Constitutional rights were violated in some way by the arresting officer)
4. And an affordable attorney can perform these services at a reasonable rate; we only ask $450 to defend on most St Louis misdemeanors
PLEADING GUILTY IS NOT YOUR BEST OPTION!!
SO THEN WHAT ARE THE CONSEQUENCES OF PLEADING GUILTY?
1. The charge will become a part of your permanent record
2. It will forever thereafter show up as a criminal conviction
3. This will allow anyone running a background check on you to see it
4. As you might imagine, this will have a very bad effect on whether or not you get a job in the future (but also renting an apartment, or applying for governmental benefits)
WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN A FELONY AND A MISDEMEANOR?
1. Felony charges are reserved for alleged criminal activity that is severe in nature; misdemeanors are not as severe, but there is still jail time and fines that come with such a charge
2. Only the state can charge you with a felony; smaller municipalities are limited to misdemeanors only
