If you have been charged with a crime, it is critical to have an experienced criminal defense attorney on your side. At Eng & Woods, we are dedicated to defending our clients’ rights in criminal cases before local, state and federal courts. Our attorneys represent people throughout Missouri who have been charged with crimes such as:
We have been defending clients for over 50 years, gaining innumerable dismissals and acquittals. Our criminal defense attorneys aggressively represent their clients and are ready to utilize their experience, knowledge and skills at trial. Let us help you beat your charges and provide you with the justice you deserve.
Anyone being charged with a crime should not talk to the police without a criminal defense lawyer present or without contacting an attorney first. An experienced attorney can make sure that your rights are fully protected and that you do not say anything that can be misinterpreted. At Eng & Woods, we urge you to contact us for a free initial consultation if you are facing criminal charges.
Our ultimate goal in every criminal defense case is to persuade the prosecutor not to file charges. Unfortunately, however, charges usually do end up getting filed. The next option after charges are filed is to try to get the case dismissed altogether. If we cannot get the case dismissed, we may sometimes resolve your case through a plea agreement if you concur that it is in your best interest.
It will always be the client’s decision on whether to plead out or go to trial. If you decide to go to trial, you can be assured that we have the ability to secure the best possible results in your case – including reducing or avoiding jail time. We have built our reputation on our abilities in the courtroom, and our attorneys stand ready to fight for you.
Yes, we do represent clients who have been charged with driving while intoxicated (DWI) or minor in possession (MIP) offenses. At Eng & Woods, our attorneys understand that sometimes good people make mistakes. However, when indivduals drive under the influence of drugs or alcohol, those mistakes often come with severe consequences under the law.
We encourage you to read more about our extensive DWI practice at Eng & Woods on our DWI Page or find out more information about what steps to take after a DWI arrest on the Missouri Department of Revenue website.
