Independence Missouri Criminal Defense - for as little as $450
CRIMINAL DEFENSE IN INDEPENDENCE MO - STARTING AT $450
When it comes to misdemeanor charges in Independence MO, you don’t want to take any chances. A conviction on a misdemeanor will stay on your permanent record forever. This can affect your future in many ways. For example, if you were to rent an apartment, or apply for a job, or in some cases when you try to get a hotel room, a criminal background check will be run. The report will showcase your criminal conviction, and will very likely cause you to miss out on an otherwise great opportunity (like a job that you were completely qualified for).
WE KEEP OUR FEES LOW SO THAT EVERYONE CAN HAVE ACCESS TO AN ATTORNEY - AS LOW AS $450
But the most unfortunate fact of all is that the vast majority of people do not seek the aid of an attorney to help them with their Independence MO criminal charge. Instead, they roll the dice and represent themselves. The most often stated reason for why people go about things alone is a lack of finances. It is usually very expensive to hire a good attorney to fight for your rights. But this is why we made the decision long ago to charge a relatively low amount for straightforward misdemeanor cases in Missouri. Why? Because we firmly believe that everyone should have a chance to a strong defense (regardless of their economic means).
NO ONE SHOULD BE LEFT BEHIND TO FEND FOR THEMSELVES
What types of cases do we handle? Marijuana possession (including paraphernalia charges), stealing (sometimes called theft or shoplifting), trespassing, and some assault cases. These are considered by most to be “low-level” charges. But a misdemeanor carries potential jail time and a large fine. So it is sometimes confusing why folks do not take these matters more seriously!
There are several ways that we can attack the charges. To begin with, we would of course request the police report (and all evidence collected by the officers on the scene). After a thorough investigation, it is sometimes possible to argue that the charges should be dismissed. A good example would be if your Constitutional rights were violated (like if your Fourth Amendment rights against unlawful search and seizure were not observed by the arresting officer). In other situations, we can get the charges reduced to a lesser offense (like “Littering”) so that nothing negative or harmful appears on your record.
Either way, it is far better to have an attorney looking out for your best interests!! Because the alternative (defending yourself) is a very risky proposition. We purposefully keep our fees as low as possible, so that the greatest number of people can have access to experienced, professional legal services. So please do get in touch with us as soon as possible!
