Hazelwood Criminal Defense Lawyer
I am Douglas Richards, a City of Hazelwood Criminal Defense Lawyer, who since graduating from Washington University Law School in 1986, have been helping and defending people who have been arrested and charged with all kinds of Criminal Charges for over the past 32 years.
You or a family member have been arrested for a Criminal Charge, DWI Charge, Drug Charge or Traffic Offense in the City of Hazelwood, MO. Whether the Criminal Charge is for, but not limited to:
- Drug Possession
- Drug Paraphernalia
- Domestic Assault
- 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/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 or other kind of Traffic Ticket, it is often worthwhile to discuss the situation with an experienced Hazelwood Criminal Defense Lawyer. You may permanently damage your case by talking with police and prosecutors before talking with a Criminal Defense Lawyer.
Call me, Douglas Richards, an experienced Hazelwood Criminal Defense Lawyer, for a Free Consultation.
I have represented clients facing criminal charges for over 32 years. The Prosecuting Attorney must prove guilt in municipal court criminal cases, like all other criminal cases, beyond a reasonable doubt. By demonstrating even before trial that the Prosecuting Attorney has no case, or a very weak case, this can serve as the basis to arrange for a plea bargain to a reduced or lesser amended charge, or even for the complete dismissal of the original criminal charge itself.
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 City of Hazelwood Criminal Defense Lawyer in court. You need someone on your side who understands the law and how the municipal criminal courts work.
I never charge a fee for an initial consultation because I understand that finding the right Hazelwood Criminal Defense Lawyer is an important step. Call me today so we can set up a time to meet face-to-face so I can answer all of your City of Hazelwood Criminal Defense questions.
