A Missouri Criminal Defense And Family Law Attorney You Can Trust

Understanding What Is At Stake

Whether you are going through a family transition or facing criminal charges, your future is uncertain. In a divorce, you may worry about your financial stability or your right to see your children. In a criminal matter, you may fear for your job security. Even if you are acquitted, you may wonder whether the stigma associated with certain charges, such as drunk driving, will carry lasting consequences.

Our experience allows us to tailor our legal strategy to your specific situation. That process begins with taking the time to listen to your story.

Thoroughly Investigating The Facts

The law requires a painstaking attention to facts. In both our criminal and family law cases, we start from the ground up. In a divorce, our investigation might encompass a forensic accounting of the marital estate, subpoenas for bank records and tax returns, or consultations with child psychologists.

In a criminal matter, we do not necessarily accept the arrest report on face value. We may return to the scene of the crime, interview eyewitnesses, consult with police procedural experts, and evaluate your negotiation options.

Providing Personalized Legal Representation

In a divorce, there are countless variables that influence your desired outcome. You may have preferences regarding your property division or the type of financial liquidity you need after your divorce. If you have children, your work schedule and location may require creative approaches to child custody and visitation schedules.

In a criminal matter, we analyze the evidence and litigation hazards against your plea options. A deal that requires time away from work, such as an extended community service obligation or a residential treatment program, may not be practically feasible for every client. If the evidence you have is weak, you may be better off relying on our extensive trial experience to prepare an aggressive defense in court. By thinking outside of the box, we have obtained a wide range of favorable outcomes for our clients, including:

  • Not guilty judgments
  • Dismissed charges/cases
  • Reduced charges
  • Probation (supervised and unsupervised)
  • Drug treatment programs
  • Counseling
  • Electronic shackling to avoid incarceration
  • Detection bracelets to avoid incarceration
  • Hospital treatment (outpatient and in-patient)
