Unlike a burdened public defender that has more cases than he or she can handle, we take the time to fully address your situation and find the most workable defenses. We believe that people are innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt and even then, people can still get off on a technicality at times. As a result-driven law firm, we will fight for your freedom at all costs and do what we can to turn things around in your favor. We are proud to service the residents of St. Louis, as well as St. Charles.
Criminal Defense Areas of Practice
Our firm can handle all types of criminal defense cases, ranging from
white collar crimes,
drug trafficking and serious
violent crimes. If you have been accused of a drug crime such as
drug possession, we will investigate the case in order to find out if your search and seizure rights were violated. If you were accused of a
theft crime such as shoplifting or burglary, the burden of proof will be on the prosecution to prove that you actually intended to commit theft, and we will search for any holes in the case, as well as any flaws that might improve you chances of getting the charges dropped.
Have you been accused of a sex crime? While sex crimes such as rape, child molestation and child pornography are extremely serious, it is not uncommon for such allegations to be based on lies. For this reason, it’s extremely critical that we cross-examine any and all evidence against you in court, and sometimes this means discrediting witnesses. Our firm also handles all types of
white collar crimes, dangerous violent crimes and
juvenile offenses. If you were accused of a federal crime such as treason, tax evasion, fraud or terrorism, we offer
federal criminal defense service for those who are facing federal charges.
