Criminal Defense
The longer you wait to contact us, the less time we have to analyze your case and start building your defense.
Have you been arrested and charged with a crime?

Being charged with a crime is a serious matter that can leave you afraid, confused, and in need of help. If you are facing criminal charges, you should immediately seek the help of an attorney.

An attorney can provide you with the skilled legal help that may see your charges reduced, if not dropped altogether.All criminal cases are extremely complex propositions; full of details that must be analyzed in order to reach a favorable outcome.

We will make sure every part of the case against you is analyzed including:

The legality/validity of the procedures employed by law enforcement
The strength and weakness of the evidence against you
The local history of cases such as yours in order to evaluate all your likely options
Estate Planning
Whether your estate is simple or complicated, large or small, if you are ready to take the first step, please contact us for a complimentary estate planning appointment.
The most often question we get asked when it comes to estate planning is, "Do I need an estate plan?" The answer is that you already have one! Every person already has an estate plan, the one imposed on you by the state of Missouri. The important question is would you rather decide or would you rather have the state of Missouri decide:

- Who would take care of children in case of your death?

- How your possessions are distributed when you pass away.

- Who could make medical decisions in case you are not able to?

Many people, including attorneys, often overlook the most important part of proper estate planning. While it is helpful for your family to have some guidance on what your last wishes are, the more important issue is planning for your care during your lifetime. A properly executed trust, advance health care directive, and a durable power of attorney can allow you to decide who could make decisions on your behalf if you become unable to do so yourself. This is something everyone can, and should plan to address while they are able to do so.

We will work to help get you through it and ensure that your rights, concerns, and opinions are represented and expressed in the courtroom.
Divorce

A divorce can provide a release from an intolerable situation. However, obtaining a divorce presents a number of legal issues: the division of assets and debt, child custody, and terms of spousal support, just to name a few. Each of these things must be resolved in order to move forward with your life.

Child Custody

I find no other area of family law more contentious than child custody. While Missouri law always decides these disputes in favor of “the best interests of the child,” the courts have wide latitude in determining just what those interests are. A skilled child custody attorney can make a difference in the outcome of these disputes.

Child Support and Modification

In Missouri, child support guidelines are set by formulas considering a number of factors, including each parent’s income, number of children in the family, and other dynamics. While the required child support level is set in the divorce decree and stipulation, that amount is not fixed forever. Rather, it can change due to changes in the incomes of the parties and other circumstances.

While the initial amount of child support is outlined in the final divorce settlement, this does not mean that child support levels cannot change. When major changes such as a promotion, the loss of a job, or the remarriage of a former spouse takes place—the change in circumstances may require that modifications be made to the terms of support.

I can provide a thorough legal analysis and advise you whether the child support is set too high or too low. As part of this process, we work with accountants to analyze and establish accurate amounts of support. If action is required, we will immediately begin working to obtain a modification to the support terms.

Whatever your situation might be, contact me today to schedule a free initial consultation. This is a traumatic time in your life. I will work to help get you through it and ensure that your rights, concerns, and opinions are represented and expressed in the courtroom.
