Questions Frequently Asked Our Criminal Defense Team

Night Time Police Violent Crime Intervention. Police Vehicles with Flashing Lights.The most common questions that clients (both new and existing) ask is “Am I going to jail?” If you have been charged with a crime, the prospect of jail time is probably a terrifying thought. In every criminal case, we try to provide an honest assessment of the possible punishments that could result from their charges, whether they are jail, probation, fines, or license suspension.

We will always be upfront with our clients so that they can truly make an informed decision about how to proceed with their case

Another popular question that we hear from clients is how the police found the information that led to their arrest. This question is usually easier to answer after we have thoroughly reviewed the facts and evidence of your case and closely examined the police investigation. When you hire an attorney to represent you in regards to your criminal charges, one of the first things that he/she will do is request Discovery from the Missouri State Prosecuting Attorney. The State is generally required to provide your lawyer with a copy of the evidence as it relates to your charge. Our lawyers understand the importance of obtaining that evidence as quickly as possible so that we can begin constructing a legal defense on your behalf.
