Besides possible jail or prison time, a criminal conviction, even a minor misdemeanor, will be on your record forever and is a matter of public record so anyone can view it. You might have to disclose it to any future and maybe even your current employer if your job requires a criminal background check or security clearance.
How we can help:
We have experience trying all types of criminal cases before judges and juries. We have tried criminal cases ranging from minor traffic violations to murder in the 1st degree. Here is a short list of some of the crimes we can represent you with in the municipal and State Courts of Missouri or Federal Courts:
- Drug possession
- Assault / Battery
- DWI / DUI
- Misdemeanor or felony traffic crimes
If you are not a citizen of the United States and under investigation or have been arrested for a crime, it is very important to talk to an attorney who has experience in both criminal and immigration law. A criminal conviction, even for a misdemeanor, can have severe consequences on your current or future immigration status in the United States.
If you have been accused, are under investigation, or have been arrested of a crime, the Ison Law Office will be happy to provide you with a free initial consultation.
