Aggressive Criminal Defense

Your Criminal Defense Team

Criminal Lawyers St Charles MOWhile the Lampin Law Firm is a full-service firm, a large portion of our practice is dedicated to defending those who have been charged with crimes in the St. Louis and St. Charles areas.

Three of our attorneys (Charles Lampin, Ross Buehler, and Ray Chandler) are former assistant prosecuting attorneys for the State of Missouri. Tony Linson also has years of experience as a municipal judge and prosecutor in several area municipalities.  In addition, attorneys Michael Boyd and Bond Wilkison have practiced criminal defense law their entire careers and have handled cases in virtually all St. Louis area courts. All of our lawyers are dedicated to protecting the rights of the accused.

Our Approach to Criminal Defense

We believe that everybody is entitled to a vigorous defense. If you have been charged with a crime, the state has to prove each and every element of that crime. Regardless of the amount of evidence, you are presumed innocent! We will never push a client into a plea because it is the easy way. The easy way is NOT always the best way. We work with our clients to identify their goals and formulate and effective defense. Our clients are involved in every step of the process. We also know that EVERY CASE IS DIFFERENT AND EVERY CLIENT IS UNIQUE. There is not a “one size fits all” approach to the law. We take the time to not only investigate the facts of your case, but also to get to know you. We will fight as hard as we can to get the best result for you.

Questions Frequently Asked to Our Criminal Defense Team

Lampin-Law-Criminal-TeamThe most common questions that clients (both new and existing) ask is “Am I going to jail?” If you have been charged with a crime, the prospect of jail time is probably a terrifying thought. In every criminal case we try to provide an honest assessment of the possible punishments that could result from their charges, whether they are jail, probation, fines or license suspension. We will always be upfront with our clients so that they can truly make an informed decision about how to proceed with their case.

Another popular question that we hear from clients is how the police found the information that led to their arrest. This question is usually easier to answer after we have thoroughly reviewed the facts and evidence of your case and closely examined the police investigation.
