Don't Just Plead Guilty.

Taney County Criminal Defense Attorney

Traffic tickets

It can be tempting to just pay the fine for your speeding ticket, put it behind you, and move on. If you were going 1-5 miles an hour over the speed limit or weren't wearing a seatbelt, maybe you should. However, for most other infractions, you will get points on your license. These points can affect your insurance rates, your ability to get certain jobs that require you to use a car, and may even contribute to the loss of your license. Call us and we can help you avoid these problems.


Driving under the influence

One of the only crimes that is primarily based on scientific evidence, a lot can go wrong in a DUI arrest. Maintenance on the machines, the degree at which the arresting officer waves his finger in front of your face, even what you had to eat the night in question all have an impact on your case. At The Garrett Law Firm, we know the science behind the tests and where the problems can be. The impact of a DUI conviction can be devastating. Call us today for a free consultation to see what we can do for you.


Reasonable doubt

The court system we use in United States is based on the ecclesiastical court system from the Middle Ages in Europe and is where we get the idea of proving guilt "beyond a reasonable doubt." It was the thought at the time that to convict an innocent person was to tarnish or stain one's soul. So, to convict someone, there could not be any reasonable doubt that the defendant was innocent. No matter the crime, our experience can help find that reasonable doubt if there is any. Call us today for a free consultation.
