When You Need a Dedicated Advocate
At my law office in St. Louis, Missouri, I work diligently to provide my clients with the quality legal representation and highly personalized service they require. I believe that it is important for anyone who is facing criminal charges to have a strong and caring advocate who is dedicated to aggressively defending his or her rights.
I work closely with my clients to provide the accessible and responsive representation they need. I take time to listen to my clients, answer their questions, return their calls promptly and keep them informed about the status of their case.
Proactive and Aggressive Representation
I believe that a strong offense is often the best defense. When I represent clients in criminal cases, I take time to investigate the facts of their cases, understand their goals and put together a defense strategy with their needs in mind.
While I represent many clients who have already been charged with a crime, one thing that makes my practice unique is that I also represent a number of clients who feel they may have become the target of a criminal investigation. From the onset of such cases, it is my objective to provide as much damage control as possible.
To do so, I may obtain notarized statements from possible witnesses or talk to the police on behalf of my client. Where possible, I explore the possibility of expunging my client's arrest record.
It is my objective in such cases to help my clients avoid criminal charges. When attaining this goal is not possible, however, I work diligently to raise a strong defense on their behalf.
I Can Help
I go into every case with the belief that I can make a positive difference in my client's case. A lot of times people think their case is hopeless because they have made incriminating statements or because the evidence seems to be stacked against them. Even in cases that initially seem bleak, there are a variety of ways that I can help.
Helping Clients Make Informed Decisions
Before you choose to enter into any plea agreement or before you determine that you want to fight your charges at trial, I will take time to talk to you, answer your questions and help you understand your options. I will help you understand the nature of your charges, the penalties you could face if convicted and the details of any plea offer that you are considering.
I believe that an informed client is an empowered client. Keeping my clients informed and involved is just one of the ways that I help my clients take charge of their situation.
