ST. LOUIS CRIMINAL DEFENSE ATTORNEYS FOR FEDERAL AND STATE CASES

When you are charged with a criminal offense, you may feel a host of different emotions, from uncertainty and stress to fear. You need to consult an experienced criminal defense lawyer who has expertise in a variety of cases and has a proven track record of success. A criminal defense lawyer can analyze your case and guide you through the legal process, so it is critical you select the right lawyer for you.

We, at Bruntrager & Billings, are a dedicated team of lawyers with extensive experience in the courtroom defending clients accused of felony and misdemeanor charges.

 

What happens when you are charged with a criminal offense?

 

Criminal charges can have a huge impact on your life. If you are found guilty, sentencing can include fines and/or probation. At most, it can mean prison time ranging from days/months to life. Charges remain on your record for years or even permanently. It is important to consult a highly experienced criminal defense lawyer who will take the time to listen to your story, assess the case and fight on your behalf.

 

How can a criminal attorney help you?

 

You need to have a strong advocate on your side, someone who will fight for you when others will not. Top criminal defense attorneys have years of experience along with the education to navigate the complexities of a criminal trial. Criminal defense attorneys are trained to find the nuances of each case and exploit the differences to your advantage to reduce or negate charges.

 

Your criminal defense lawyer’s goal is to use his/her knowledge of the law and trial expertise to mitigate charges or get them dismissed. The right attorney will never promise you an acquittal, because it is impossible and unethical to guarantee such an outcome. A criminal defense lawyer’s purpose is to fight for your rights as a citizen and use every tool possible to get you a fair trial.

 

A criminal lawyer can represent you if you are facing criminal charges in either of the two categories mentioned below:

 

  • Misdemeanors: These include charges that are less serious and can lead to imprisonment for less than a year. For example: bank fraud, tax and accounting fraud.
  • Felonies: These are more serious cases with bigger consequences if found guilty. It can lead to lifelong imprisonment or even the death penalty. For example: murder, assault, drug possession, sale, trafficking and manufacturing

 

We know the ins and outs of both Federal and State cases. Many lawyers avoid Federal cases due to the nuances of the system, but we are experienced in these criminal cases and have a long history of successful outcomes for our clients. We defended clients on criminal cases ranging from misdemeanor DWI charges to serious homicide and drug allegations. Though we can’t promise you a specific outcome, we can ensure you that our family of criminal defense lawyers will use every resource we have available to ensure you have a fair trial where your voice is heard.
