St. Louis, MO (February 18, 2019) – Charles Barberio is one of the best criminal defense lawyers in the St. Louis area, representing clients from minor misdemeanors to serious felonies. Putting his skills to the test, Charles defended Jamal Clay who was accused of second-degree murder and armed criminal action charges. Clay was in an altercation in a Schnucks parking lot with Wesley Hughes, and claims to have been attacked and pulled down to the ground. The two were wrestling over Clay’s gun when he shot Hughes twice in an act of self-defense. Police were said to have made Clay out to be the bad guy when that was not the case.
With the work of Barberio, Clay received a “Not Guilty” verdict, resulting in a victory for both of them. Charles Barberio and his team at the People’s Counsel deal with criminal crimes such as burglary, DUI/DWIs, assault, drugs, and many more. This is just one example of the countless amount of people the People’s Counsel has been able to help throughout the past few years. In the case of a DUI/DWI, People’s Counsel can help you apply for a Missouri hardship license should your driver’s license be suspended or revoked, and can even help reinstate your license.
Many factors set them apart from the competition, such as their free consultations provided to walk clients through the legal process. Charles Barberio and his partner, Thomas Schmitz are compassionate and trustworthy and want to make sure their clients are involved in the decision-making process as well. You can count on the People’s Counsel to deliver justice.
