Criminal Defense

Kansas City Criminal Defense Lawyer

If you’re facing criminal charges, a criminal defense attorney can help you navigate the court system and protect your rights in order to achieve the best possible result in your case. No criminal defense attorney can tell you for sure what the outcome of your case will be, but I can promise you the zealous advocacy and sound advice you deserve. I handle most felony offenses as well as all misdemeanor and municipal cases, including:

  • Possession of a controlled substance
  • Domestic violence
  • Criminal damage to property
  • Assault
  • Trespassing
  • Burglary
  • Fraud
  • Driving While Intoxicated / Driving Under the Influence
  • Driving While Suspended
  • Other Traffic Violations
  • Probation Violations

Additionally, many offenses also carry collateral consequences, such as loss of your driver’s license, losing your eligibility for certain types student loans, or, in the case of immigrants from other countries, deportation or loss of eligibility for citizenship or naturalization.

I also handle civil legal issues related to criminal charges, such as probation hearings, criminal record expungements, blood alcohol test refusal appeals, Department of Revenue hearings, and drivers license reinstatement hearings.

If you’re wrongly accused or if you’ve made a mistake and don’t know where to turn for help, please contact me for a free consultation.
