St. Louis DUI / DWI Attorneys

Driving while intoxicated is a serious criminal offense that can subject you to penalties that can impact your life for years to come. Regardless of how a driver felt about their impairment at the time of their arrest, if they are found to have a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) exceeding 0.08%, they can face jail time, expensive fines, a driver’s license suspension, and installation of an Ignition Interlock Device (IID) on their vehicle.

Sex Crime Lawyers in St. Louis

Individuals who face charges for sex crimes run the risk of facing criminal proceedings in which they may be presumed guilty rather than innocent. As strong public opinion of sex offenders makes these cases prone to presumptions and subjectivity, retaining legal counsel to protect your rights and your future is of the utmost importance.

Convicted sex offenders risk a number of harsh penalties, including mandatory prison sentences and lifetime sex offender registration. These reputation-damaging punishments can severely limit an individual’s future prospects, including where they can live, what jobs they can apply for, whether they can obtain loans, and more.
