What is the difference between a felony and a misdemeanor?

If you have been arrested in Missouri, you might wonder exactly what your charges mean. There are big differences between a felony charge and a misdemeanor criminal offense that you should be aware of. The two different types of charges can have very different sentencing and impacts on your future. Getting a job, joining the military and even applying for an apartment can be effected by having a felony charge or a misdemeanor. Here are the major differences between the two. 

Not everyone can be a good DUI defense attorney

It is axiomatic that to become the best in your field, you need to focus on one area and learn it well. This is true of Olympic athletes -- you do not see pole vaulters who also compete in swimming events -- and it is also true with the legal profession.

And when the subject is defending yourself against drunk driving charges in Missouri, mediocre is not what you need.

Surely no one in the state of Missouri, and likely beyond, has missed the media coverage surrounding the Michael Brown shooting about a year ago. Opinions have been mixed in the news media about the details of his death, some based on fact, some based on emotion.
