Criminal Defense in Missouri

Attorneys Devoted To Criminal Defense And To Clients

In the United States, a criminal record can follow you for the rest of your life. It seems like every application asks you to disclose your criminal convictions, and a conviction can make it much more difficult to find a job or a place to live and pursue higher education.

For these reasons and many more, you can’t afford to let arrests or charges turn into convictions or guilty pleas. And you can’t trust your future to just any lawyer. At the Missouri DWI & Criminal Law Center, we are dedicated to providing tactical, aggressive criminal defense representation to every client. Our Missouri criminal defense lawyers are highly experienced in criminal law — in and out of the courtroom — and we do everything we can to protect your rights, your freedom, and your future.

How Can a Criminal Defense Attorney Help With a Criminal Case?

Criminal offenses in Missouri are classified as infractions, misdemeanors, and felonies. While infractions and less serious misdemeanors are punishable by fines, misdemeanors generally include offenses punishable by up to a year in jail. Felonies, on the other hand, are considered serious crimes with a potential punishment of more than a year in prison.

Although there are some legal matters individuals can handle on their own, a criminal charge should not be one of them. Even though misdemeanors are not considered as serious crimes as felonies, having a criminal conviction on your record can still have consequences on your everyday life. In addition, it can potentially subject you to a harsher sentence if you get in trouble and face the criminal justice system again.

Hiring a criminal defense lawyer is highly recommended if you are charged with a crime. They can help you by creating the best possible defense, exploring plea bargaining options, and protecting your rights throughout the whole process.

Bear in mind that criminal trials are sometimes necessary. So, it may be in your best interest to hire an experienced lawyer who has already dealt with cases involving jury trials.

Prosecutors will waste no time building a case against you or trying to get a guilty plea. You need someone working even harder on your side. The sooner you call us, the more options we may have to help you.

Don’t forget that some crimes that are typically considered misdemeanors can be treated as felonies if committed because of the victim’s sexual orientation, disability, race, national origin, or religion. Also, repeat offenders or those who have already committed a crime in the past may receive lengthier sentences than the standard prison sentence for the offense they have committed.

Only a knowledgeable attorney will consider all aspects of the case and assist you in making a decision about your case.
