What Does a Criminal Defense Attorney Do?

You hire a defense lawyer when you are facing criminal charges.

Their job is to protect your rights and fight these charges. They work with the court to help reduce your charges, or they can represent you in court and fight to prove your innocence.

Your defense lawyer is there to help make sure you receive fair treatment, protecting you from a system that often assumes you are guilty.

How Do I Choose a Criminal Defense Attorney?

When choosing a criminal defense attorney, you must consider a number of different factors, such as:

  • Customer reviews.
    These days, it’s much easier to track down reviews for any business. A lawyer’s former and current clients will generally voice their opinions on different review sites, so make sure you learn about others’ experiences with your prospective attorney.
  • The attorney’s experience.
    An experienced lawyer can navigate the complex laws that are involved in criminal defense, and they will be able to use that experience to help you get the best possible outcome in your case.
  • The lawyer’s communication style.
    A criminal defense attorney should also be able to communicate well with you. They must keep you updated on the status of your case. Speak to a prospective attorney a few times to see if your styles match up.

Violent Crime Defense

If you are facing criminal charges for a violent crime, you need a skilled criminal defense attorney on your side. A violent crime conviction in Missouri can carry serious consequences, including lengthy prison sentences and steep fines. 

Our team can evaluate the evidence against you, and we work tirelessly to build a strong defense strategy. Our methods may include questioning witness testimony, challenging the admissibility of certain evidence, and negotiating for reduced charges or more lenient sentencing. 

Domestic Violence

Domestic violence is a serious offense in Missouri. The accusation alone can harm someone’s life and reputation. When facing domestic assault or abuse charges, you must remain aware of your rights. 

Our firm understands how often these allegations are exaggerated or outright fabricated. We can work to challenge evidence and cross-examine witnesses. Our team can also raise affirmative defenses, such as self-defense or defense of others, working toward minimizing or eliminating your charges. 

With just one domestic violence conviction, you could face significant jail time, hefty fines, and a criminal record that could haunt you for years. Don’t roll over and accept these allegations. Act quickly, and let us help you mount your defense.

Disorderly Conduct

In Missouri, disorderly conduct is a Class B misdemeanor. This charge can result in fines and even imprisonment. Prosecutors file this charge when they believe someone causes a public disturbance or recklessly risks doing so.

Examples include:

  • Creating loud or excessive noise
  • Engaging in fights or threatening behavior
  • Using abusive language or gestures in a public space

If you’ve been accused of disorderly conduct, consult with our defense team. We provide skilled guidance and representation throughout the legal process. Our firm can work to build a defense based on the circumstances of the case. We want to minimize any consequences and protect your rights and freedoms.

We can help defend you against all manner of criminal allegations, including:

  • Theft Crimes
  • Drug Offenses
  • Expungements
  • Felony Charges
  • Federal Offenses
  • Grand Theft Auto
  • Juvenile Offenses
  • Weapons Charges
  • White Collar Crimes
  • Violation of Probation
  • And much more!
