It is the job of a Prosecuting Attorney to bring cases against people accused of crimes. Knowing the law is an important part of their job. Our Criminal Defense Team consists of three former prosecutors who have years of experience working on both sides of the courtroom. They know the common tactics prosecutors use to build cases, and they are able to use that knowledge to the advantage of their clients.

Our highly experienced attorneys defend clients charged with all felonies and misdemeanors, including:

  • Drunk Driving: Felony and Misdemeanor DWI Defense, Driver’s License Issues, Expungement
  • Violent Crimes: Assault and Battery, Domestic Violence
  • Property Crimes: embezzlement, fraud, theft, robbery, white collar crimes, Internet crimes, shoplifting, burglary
  • Drug Crimes : drug charges, possession, distribution, manufacture
  • Sex Crimes : rape, sexual assault, pornography
  • Weapons Charges: unlawful use of a weapon, armed criminal action and more

We know that a conviction for any of these crimes can change your life.  If you or a loved one are facing investigation, arrest, trial, or jail time in Missouri state or federal court, then you need an aggressive criminal defense strategy developed with the goal of protecting your freedom.  That strategy includes having a St. Louis criminal attorney that is experienced and dedicated to defending your rights.
