Solomon & Peter, LLP

Firm Overview

The Law Office of Solomon & Peter, LLP, was started with one goal in mind: provide excellent representation at a reasonable price. You are not just hiring a lawyer; you are hiring a team of lawyers. We believe if you are being prosecuted by a well-funded government, with attorneys, investigators and police departments, you need a team on your side.

Garrett Solomon and Joshuah Peter created this law firm because we share the same philosophy and belief about criminal defense: we refuse to let our clients go down without a fight. If the government is investigating or prosecuting you, you need us in your corner.

We've successfully defended thousands of people, in small towns and large cities; in municipal and state court; and before rural and urban judges and juries.

There are many lawyers out there, and your choice of a lawyer is an important one. If you are being investigated by the police, or if a prosecutor has filed charges against you, you need someone on your side that can protect and defend you, the way they would want to be represented.

We have been doing that for over twenty combined years. We have tried over a hundred cases and have negotiated hundreds of great results for our clients.

The Attorneys at Solomon & Peter are available 24 hours a day. We know the police are out there all day and night, 24 hours a day. We believe your lawyer should be available to you when you need him.

How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

Through years of experience going to trial on some of the most serious cases in the Kansas City area we have seen how they system can be stacked against a person charged with a crime. While many attorneys are "general practice" taking on all sorts of cases and clients, we have chosen to dedicate ourselves to representing individuals who are facing the full burden of a prosecutors office, the police department and all of the resources they have backing them up, and focus on providing our clients with the best defense possible, and doing everything we can to make sure our clients get the best possible results.

When you are charged with a crime, you need a dedicated team of attorneys to fight for you, and we make sure that we provide the highest level of representation possible.

What experience or education distinguishes your lawyers from others

Over the years, the attorneys at Solomon & Peter have gone to trial representing clients charged with everything from DWI misdemeanor offenses to some of the most complicated charges of drug sales and possession, assaults, theft, robbery, sex offenses, child abuse, manslaughter and murder. When you've been accused of committing a crime, at S&P you will know that you are being represented by a team of attorneys that have been in a courtroom nearly every day for over 20 years combined. In addition to the years of experience, we make sure that our attorneys are up to date on the most recent changes in the law and procedures that can benefit you.

What distinguishes your law firm from others?

At Solomon & Peter you aren't just hiring an attorney, you will be hiring a team of attorneys that will work together on your defense. We pride ourselves on communication and making ourselves available whenever our clients need us. We always make sure we are providing our clients with the same level of representation we would want if we, or someone we loved were accused of a crime and in need of help. No attorney can honestly promise you a specific outcome on a case, but we can assure you that we will do everything in our power to provide you with the best result possible.
