Missouri Attorney Represents Criminal Defense Clients
St. Charles lawyer represents clients accused of crimes
Here at Nick Brockmeyer, Attorney at Law in St. Charles, I represent clients accused of drug crimes, DUIs, sexual offenses, drug crimes and other felonies and misdemeanors. With over 15 years of legal experience, I have the knowledge and tenacity to provide you with top-quality legal representation.
Knowledgeable attorney represents clients charged with a range of felonies and misdemeanors
Missouri divides felonies into five classes, each with their own minimum and maximum sentencing requirements. Crimes such as first-degree assault, kidnapping and murder are Class A felonies, which carry minimum sentences of 10 years. Misdemeanors, on the other hand, involve less severe penalties, with maximum sentences ranging between 15 days and one year. Misdemeanor crimes include minor theft, domestic violence and illegal gambling.
In the state of Missouri, most nonviolent crimes can be expunged, including counts of burglary and credit card fraud. I help eligible clients with the expungement process, which prevents certain employers from seeing a past conviction on their criminal record.
Aggressive litigator defends individuals against drug crime allegations
Penalties for drug crimes can be severe depending on the specific circumstances. While possession of a small amount of marijuana is classified as a misdemeanor, all other controlled substance possession charges, as well as distribution and manufacturing counts, are felonies. I’ll help you weigh your options and work to build a strong defense against the prosecution aimed at having your charges reduced or dismissed. When possible, I will also search for rehabilitative alternatives to incarceration. For instance, many non-violent first-time offenders can elect to complete a drug treatment program, which allows them to avoid jail time.
Skilled attorney helps clients charged with sexual offenses
Individuals convicted of sexual offenses in Missouri can face severe penalties, including mandatory registration as a sex offender. Whether you’ve been accused of rape, child molestation or other sexual misconduct, you’re innocent until proven guilty, and the prosecution must be able to prove that the crime happened beyond any reasonable doubt. I’ll do everything possible to provide you with top-quality legal representation you deserve, challenging the evidence against you in order to reach the best possible outcome.
Experienced advocate represents clients facing DWI charges
Being convicted of driving under the influence of alcohol can result in fines, jail time and license suspension. I understand what is at stake in these cases and will examine every detail of your charge in order to determine if the sobriety test was improperly administered or the arresting officer failed to follow proper police procedures. Where appropriate, I’ll argue for a Suspended Imposition of Sentence (SIS), which allows you to avoid jail time by participating in a substance abuse program and agreeing to a court-supervised probationary period.
