Unlike a civil law matter, a criminal case implicates the State. In other words, it is not another private citizen which is filing a lawsuit for money damages or equitable relief against you, it is the State of Missouri or one of its cities/municipalities bringing criminal charges. If convicted, criminal charges will usually be on your record permanently, thus causing you to sustain collateral legal consequences (especially in light of the extremely narrow instances when expungement is granted in Missouri).
We offer free consultations and defend a wide range of actions including “minor” misdemeanors, to charges of DWI, to other more serious charges such as white collar crimes and felonies. If you have been charged with a crime, or have reason to believe that you soon may be charged with a crime, please contact us today to set up a legal consultation at (314) 283-8930.
