Were You Recently Arrested or Ticketed In Maryland Heights?
If you or one of your family members were recently ticketed or arrested and charged with a crime in Maryland Heights, you’ve come to the right place. Getting charged with a crime, even just a simple traffic ticket, can be a very stressful and difficult process to handle. At Combs Law Group we understand this better than anyone and we work tirelessly to ease the burden of criminal charges on you. We are a highly recognized and reputable criminal defense firm located in Clayton, MO. However, we have extensive experience working within the Maryland Heights municipal court system. Maryland Heights, like many other local St. Louis County municipalities, has its own law enforcement, as well as its own prosecutors and judges. That means that for most crimes committed in the Maryland Heights city limits, you will be required to defend yourself in the Maryland Heights courts. In some cases that are more severe in nature, like murder, you might be referred to the state court, located in downtown Clayton, MO. Either way, your case will initially be processed in the Maryland Heights courts, and that means you need a criminal defense lawyer who knows how to navigate those courts. That’s where Combs Law Group can help you.
Hire The Right Criminal Defense Lawyer
Deciding to hire a criminal defense lawyer for your Maryland Heights case will be one of the best decisions you’ll make in your life. Recent data has shown that defendants who hire a criminal defense lawyer versus using a public defender typically get better outcomes on their cases. The reason? Well, public defenders are overworked and the amount of hours they need to successfully defend your case exceeds the number of hours they have available. It’s pretty simple really. When you hire your own criminal defense lawyer at Combs Law Group you are hiring one of the top 40 lawyers under 40 in St. Louis. Chris Combs, the Principal criminal defense lawyer at Combs Law Group, will be your dedicated lawyer from start to finish. Chris brings his expertise, passion, and energy to your case and the outcome is always positive. Unlike other local criminal defense firms, Chris provides his personal cell number to all clients and has a 24/7 open door policy. That means no matter what the circumstances are, if you are in legal trouble, you need to pick up the phone and call him immediately. It also means that if there’s something bothering you about your case and you want to discuss it with Chris, just pick up the phone and call him.
