Drug Crime Defense
Drug charges carry serious consequences in Missouri, including lengthy prison sentences, heavy fines, and a permanent criminal record. As such, mounting an effective defense is crucial.
We employ several strategies against these allegations, such as:
- Challenging the legality of the search and seizure
- Seeking to have the charges reduced or dismissed
- Investigating potential instances of police misconduct
Additionally, our experienced attorneys may be able to negotiate a plea deal, resulting in reduced charges or minimal sentencing.
If you are facing DUI charges in Missouri, you must remain aware of your legal rights and options. A DUI conviction can have serious consequences, including fines, jail time, and a criminal record.
Our team can help you navigate the complex legal system and work to minimize the impact of these charges.
We have a variety of defense strategies available, from challenging the validity of field sobriety tests to arguing for a reduction in charges.
With our experience and knowledge, we can help you build a strong defense case and protect your rights.
Juvenile Crimes Defense
Missouri recognizes the unique challenges facing juveniles who have been accused of a crime, and state laws provide specialized procedures to protect their rights. In these cases, you need an attorney who understands the intricacies of these laws and the whole juvenile justice system.
Our team is familiar with the Missouri Family Court system and its range of sentencing options. We work hard to make sure a minor's future is not jeopardized. A strong, strategic defense can make a significant difference in a juvenile's life, and we are here to stand by you and your child’s side.
Technically, misdemeanors are less serious than felonies, but they are still criminal offenses. They can lead to hefty fines, probation, community service, and even jail time. The most severe misdemeanors have penalties comparable to those of a felony.
Our attorneys have extensive knowledge of the state's criminal justice system. We are here to help protect your rights in a misdemeanor charge.
Facing a felony charge in Missouri is a serious matter. These are the most serious crimes in the state, and penalties can go as far as life in prison. Furthermore, a convicted felon can lose their voting rights, have difficulty finding employment, or be rejected for housing.
The first step we take when mounting a felony defense is to understand the charges. From there, we begin gathering evidence that supports your case. Such evidence includes witnesses, documentation, physical evidence, and more.
Whether it's negotiating a plea bargain or taking your case to trial, our team will use the right resources to help prove you are not guilty.
