DON’T HESITATE! THE SOONER YOU GET IN TOUCH WITH THE PEOPLE’S COUNSEL, THE SOONER WE CAN BEGIN FIGHTING FOR YOUR RIGHTS!!
In recent years, Ferguson Missouri has been thoughts of as a municipality in which the rights of all citizens are not equally upheld. Or a place where a person’s Constitutional rights have been habitually trampled upon. But at The People’s Counsel, our Ferguson MO criminal defense lawyers are ready to defend your position (and stand with you through thick and thin).
The City of Ferguson Missouri is a perfect example of what can happen when governmental policy collides with the US Constitution. It has become the posterchild of a dysfunctional system in which (mainly minority) individuals are shunted through a process in which their foundational rights have been all but ignored.
For instance, the vast majority of people charged with a misdemeanor crime in Ferguson MO almost always end up doing the same thing: they plead guilty to the charge (without the aid of a defense attorney to help them in their time of need). As a result, many Ferguson citizens have criminal convictions on their permanent record.

How can an unclean record harm your future? There are many ways, but most of the long-term consequences of admitting guilt to a criminal charge do not become apparent until you are trying to move forward with your life. A prime example would be in regards to the next time you apply for a job. Most employers today run criminal background checks on potential employees. If there is a conviction on your record, that will be great way for the employer to eliminate you as a candidate. Doesn’t matter if you are perfectly qualified for the position, or have way more experience than the next best applicant. Once that conviction shows up, your future job prospects will be severely damaged.
The exact same thing will occur when you try to rent an apartment. All the time you will have spent searching for just the right location, with good schools, in a safe neighbor, will go up in smoke when the landlord runs the same criminal background check. This is especially true for those who are interested in securing public housing. Because state and federal government regulations are extraordinarily strict when it comes to a criminal history (and if the misdemeanor you plead guilty to is drug-related, then you might as well not even fill out an application).
Pleading guilty will also have a tremendous affect on your ability to go to college or open a business. Most folks who wish to further their education or open a startup company need funding (which usually comes in the form of a loan from a financial institution). Believe it or not, most banks are now also running background checks on loan applicants (as a way to determine whether or not you present too much of a risk to receive money).
YOUR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS NEED TO BE PROTECTED. WE WILL FIGHT THE CHARGES WITH A HARD-EARNED RECORD OF VICTORIES!<.h2>
But all of this can be avoided by simply getting in touch with us! Our goal will be to get you the best outcome possible based on a very specific method that we follow in each case. To begin with, our legal team will determine if the facts of your case warrant a dismissal. There are several situations that might be present in which an experienced Ferguson Missouri criminal defense attorney can seek to have the misdemeanor charges thrown out.
Additionally, there may be an opportunity to get the criminal charge reduced to a lesser offense. So if you have been charged with misdemeanor trespass, we would work closely with the local prosecutor to have the charge amended down to something like ‘littering’ (which is a minor infraction that would not show up on your permanent record, and therefore sidestep all the negativity described above when someone pleads guilty to a misdemeanor). It may sound a little strange to think that a plea bargain would basically involve you agreeing to plead to a lesser offense, but that is how the vast majority of criminal cases are handled all across the United States. And the Ferguson Missouri criminal defense attorneys at The People’s Counsel have secured hundreds of plea bargain for our clients over the last ten (10) years!
When you contact us, our legal team will begin working on your case immediately! We know that each case comes with its own set of particular facts and circumstances. Which means that the sooner we can get to work, the better your outcome will be. All you need to do is reach out to us, and we will take it from there!!
