Chesterfield Criminal Defense Attorney

Chesterfield Criminal Defense Attorney. You or a family member have been arrested for a Criminal Charge, DWI Charge, Drug Charge or Traffic Offense in the City of Chesterfield, MO.  Whether the Criminal Charge is for, but not limited to:

  • Drug Possession
  • Drug Paraphernalia
  • Stealing
  • Theft
  • Larceny
  • Assault
  • Domestic Assault
  • Trespassing
  • Minor in Possession
  • Driving While Intoxicated (DWI)
  • Driving Under the Influence (DUI)
  • Driving With Excessive Blood Content (BAC)
  • All Municipal Court Criminal Charges

Or you just received a speeding ticket or citation for a traffic violation such as driving with no insurance, the consequences can be serious. They may include a criminal conviction on your record, fines, loss of your driver’s license, or even jail time.

Pleading guilty to a DWI or a DUI, or other traffic offenses, could not only mean a fine, but application of the Missouri Department of Revenue point system. This could lead to eventual suspension of your driver’s license and extremely high insurance rates for several years.

Before pleading guilty to a Criminal Charge, a DWI Charge, a Drug Charge or any kind of Speeding Charge or other kind of Traffic Ticket, it is often worthwhile to discuss the situation with an experienced Chesterfield Criminal Defense Attorney.

Call me, Douglas Richards, an experienced Chesterfield Criminal Defense Attorney, for a Free Consultation. You may permanently damage your case by talking with police and prosecutors before talking with a Criminal Defense Attorney.

Since graduating from Washington University Law School in 1986, I have been representing and defending clients who have been arrested and charged with all kinds of Criminal Charges for over the past 30 years.  

In Municipal Court Criminal Cases, just like in all Criminal Cases, the Prosecuting Attorney must prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. By demonstrating before trial that the Prosecuting Attorney has no case, or a very weak case, can serve as the basis to arrange for a plea bargain, a reduced charge, or even complete dismissal of the charges.

I will make sure your rights and privileges are protected to the greatest extent possible. An arrest can be a devastating experience, and the consequences can follow you for the rest of your life. Because the criminal court system is complex, you benefit from the counsel of a skilled and knowledgeable Chesterfield Criminal Defense Attorney even in the municipal court.  You need someone on your side who understands the law and how the municipal courts work.

I never charge a fee for an initial consultation because I understand that finding the right Chesterfield Criminal Defense Attorney is an important step. Call me so we can set up a time to meet face-to-face so I can answer all of your Chesterfield Criminal Defense questions.
