Traffic Violations

We give traffic cases the same effort we give cases involving serious felonies. We fight on your behalf to avoid penalties such as loss of your driving privileges.

DWI

Each charge of driving while intoxicated involves different facts. Our attorneys have experience with all types of DWIs — from your first DWI offense to driving under the influence of drugs and felony DWI.

Drug Crimes

Depending on the type and amount of substance in question, drug crimes can be charged in either state or federal court. Regardless of the court or severity of the offense, our attorneys have the necessary experience.

Stealing

Having any kind of theft conviction on your record can pose future challenges. Our lawyers have experience defending theft crimes ranging from shoplifting to embezzlement.

Property Damage

Serious consequences can result from a charge of property damage, especially when the value of the damaged property is high. We aggressively defend clients charged with damaging property.

Arson

Courts in Missouri — like most courts — treat the charge of arson very seriously. A serious charge requires the skilled representation our defense attorneys offer for all degrees of arson.

Sexual Offenses

Conviction for a sex offense commonly results in lifelong registration as a sex offender. Our lawyers fight aggressively to avoid this and other serious possible outcomes.

Murder & Man-slaughter

Not all criminal defense firms have experience with murder and manslaughter cases. We have handled more than 30 homicide cases and will put our experience to work in defending you.

Kidnapping

This charge often results from a custody dispute, where a parent had no intent to kidnap his or her child. Whatever the facts, we know this is a serious charge with serious possible penalties, and our attorneys defend it as such.

Assault Offenses

What started as a shouting match in a bar or an attempt to defend a friend can end with assault charges. We are experienced in defending assault charges in central Missouri involving all sorts of factual scenarios.

Domestic Violence

An allegation of domestic violence can result in various charges, including violating an order of protection, domestic assault or child abuse. With over 100 years of combined experience, our lawyers have extensive experience with the many manifestations of domestic violence and how to best defend against each.

Weapon Offenses

The most common weapons offenses involve firearms. Our attorneys will aggressively fight to avoid the various possible consequences of crimes ranging from carrying an unlicensed firearm to felon in possession of a firearm. We handle these cases whether they are charged in state or federal court.
