Juvenile Crimes

If your relatives or children are minors charged with a crime it is very important that you get them quality criminal representation that is familiar with the juvenile process.

Being charged with a violent crime can have a severe impact on your employment, your social life, and your reputation. These crimes often result in a recommendation of jail or prison so it is important that you have a criminal defense lawyer who is dedicated to your representation.

Weapons Charges

Given the current atmosphere in St. Louis, especially the City of St. Louis, illegal weapon and gun charges are treated very seriously. Possession of a weapon can be legal, sometimes it requires a license, and in some circumstances depending on the weapon it could be completely illegal to possess.

White Collar Crimes

Federal Crimes

Probation Violations

Probation revocation can result in having a conviction on your record, fines, or even incarceration. It is important to have a defense lawyer who understands the many sentencing options and alternative resolutions to having your probation revoked.
