Experience You Can Depend on for Serious Felony Crimes

Individuals convicted of a crime in Missouri or Kansas, whether through their own admission of guilt or through the determination of a jury, are subject to, among other penalties, fines, imprisonment, probation and community service. Defending your criminal case in the strongest possible way is critical to your freedom and your future.

The outcome of any criminal case depends upon the facts surrounding the crime charged, the strength of the evidence, the legal validity of law enforcement and courtroom procedure, and the goals and strategy of the government and defense. As an experienced Kansas City Felony Criminal Defense Attorney, I will navigate you through this complicated legal process.

I have been in the practice of law for more than 35 years. For the last 20 years of that I have practiced solely in the area of criminal law with primary emphasis on state and federal felony criminal cases. I estimate having been involved in more than 50 jury trials, and have been involved in literally hundreds of cases in which satisfactory dispositions that did not involve going to trial in the case were achieved.

Although a sole practitioner, I have a network of attorneys with whom I affiliate on more complicated cases depending on the nature of the case as well as the cost factors involved. Utilizing the assistance of competent and qualified individuals on a case by case basis enables me to bring to a particular case just the type of expert assistance each case requires, which inevitably leads to a more favorable disposition in the matter. My experience in all the years I have practiced has enabled me to have worked in virtually every courthouse in the metropolitan Kansas City area, as well as various courts throughout the states of Missouri and Kansas.

As a skilled Kansas City Felony Criminal Defense Attorney, I have extensive experience with a wide range of criminal law matters, including:

  • Federal and State Felony Charges
  • Serious Misdemeanors
  • Drunk Driving/ DUI
  • Serious Traffic Offenses
  • Drugs and Narcotics Charges
  • White Collar Crimes
  • Domestic Violence
  • Violent Crimes and Assault
  • Gun Violations
  • Homicide
  • Internet Crimes
  • Investigations
  • Juvenile Matters
  • Sex Crimes
  • Expungement Motions

Trust Your Lawyer–He Will Be the One Representing You, Not the Police:
If you have been arrested, or if you are stopped by the police for questioning, remember that your lawyer is the person you should trust. Law enforcement investigators are specifically trained to get people who don't want to talk to them to open up and talk with them anyway. The U.S. Supreme Court allows police, federal agents and criminal investigators to trick, lie and deceive during the course of their investigations to get the information they want.

If you are being investigated for a federal crime or other serious charge, do not answer any questions the officers, detectives or federal agents ask. You should politely, but firmly, tell them that you will need to retain an attorney before you can speak with them. Do not answer their questions. This cannot be stressed enough.You have the right to remain silent and the right to an attorney – use those rights!
