Don’t Face Criminal Charges Alone – My Firm Is Here To Help
Here’s a statistic that some may find surprising: There are as many Americans with a criminal record as there are Americans with a college diploma. If you’re currently facing criminal charges, you are certainly not alone. And while having a conviction on your record doesn’t make you a bad person, it can cost you a lot of money, limit your future opportunities and perhaps even result in jail or prison time. For these and other reasons, it is important to work with a skilled defense attorney even for charges that you might consider to be minor.
In Lexington and the Kansas City metro area, the smart choice is Burt Harriman, Attorney at Law, LLC. I bring over 17 years of legal experience to each client, including significant trial and courtroom experience. When you hire my firm, you’ll work directly with me throughout the duration of your case, and you’ll receive the personalized attention and customized representation you deserve.
Assessing The Charges And Determining Your Options
As an experienced lawyer and member of the Missouri Association of Trial Attorneys, I am equipped to help you fight or otherwise resolve a wide variety of criminal charges, including those related to:
- Shoplifting and theft
- Vandalism and property crimes
- Drug possession and related offenses
- Assault and violent crimes
- Drunk driving (DUI)
- Weapons offenses
- Traffic tickets, moving violations and auto-related crimes
The consequences for conviction in your case will depend on a number of factors, including how the crime was charged (misdemeanor vs. felony), any aggravating factors and any prior convictions you may have on your record.
When we first meet, I will help you understand the specific charges and the supporting evidence, and I can answer any questions you may have. We will also discuss your full list of legal options, which could include a negotiated plea deal, seeking alternatives to traditional sentencing/prosecution or taking your case to trial. I’ll make sure that you have all the information you need to make an informed decision about how to best address the charges you are facing.
