CRIMINAL DEFENSE 

ST. LOUIS CRIMINAL DEFENSE LAWYER

If you are facing the possibility of a conviction for a criminal offense in the states of Missouri, Illinois, or in Federal Court, then you may be facing having a criminal record for the rest of your life and spending time in prison.  You can't afford not to have an attorney who is willing to build a vigorous and aggressive defense for you.

The do's and dont's of a strong defense:


  • Don't talk to the police until you have consulted with an attorney 
  • Don't start by cutting quick deals with prosecutors.
  • Don't open from a position of weakness.
  • Never assume the police did their job correctly.
  • Don't back down from the prospect of a jury trial.
  • Don't allow an attorney to put your future at risk by trying to make their job easier.
  • Never leave any stone unturned in crafting a vigorous defense.

Backing down from the fight because it's hard doesn't do you any good.  You need a lawyer who has the experience and knowledge to win your case:

  • We fight to have your record cleared.
  • We take depositions to lock the police and witnesses into their statements.
  • We do know how to catch inconsistencies in statements from the police and witnesses.
  • We demand that the evidence be tested by preliminary hearings and jury trials.
  • We do know what the arresting officer should have done, even if they don't.
