Without fail, getting arrested or convicted of crime is a traumatic experience that will upset your life.   The penalties for a conviction are severe. You may face steep fines, and oftentimes potential  jail time.

After thoroughly examining your individual criminal case, we will provide you with our analysis of the legal strategies and issues to aggressively defend your case.  It is possible, in some cases, to reduce the specific criminal charge to a different offense that carries fewer penalties through a plea agreement. In other cases, we can get the charges reduced or even dismissed, as much of the evidence in your case can be challenged by a skilled lawyer.  A skilled criminal attorney can also minimize the severe penalties associated with a conviction.

How to obtain representation by our Criminal lawyers

Contact us. Because every circuit court, district court, and municipal court in the Kansas City utilizes different procedures (including their applicable fines, court costs, as well as their willingness to enter into plea agreements or diversions), we need to obtain various information about your DUI or failure to submit charges.  You can provide us with this information via our Free Estimate Form, via email, or by calling our office at (816) 229-2708.

Discuss your case.  Our traffic lawyers will then speak with you or will contact you back regarding: (1) the specific charges against you; (2) an overview of the process of examining and addressing your criminal charge; and (3) the amount of our attorney fees; and (4) further information and the process of addressing your criminal charge.  The potential for jail, potential constitutional or other challenges to your case, potential for an amendment or reduction, fine amounts, court costs, and attorney fees vary based on the individual jurisdiction, the severity of the charge, your driving record, and various other factors.

Payment. Once we agree on representation, we have a variety of payment options.  You can pay via credit card (either over the phone or using our credit card payment link at the bottom of the page) or cash (in person only).  For most criminal charges, we request that you make an up front payment of at least half of our attorney fee, as well make a payment arrangement that is acceptable to both you and my office, with any court costs, fines, and other payments due and payable by you to directly to the Court once your case is addressed and a disposition is entered.

We Represent You.  My office will then confirm our engagement regarding your case, and will provide you with a receipt for your payment to our office.  In order to allow us address your criminal charges, it is necessary to obtain various information, police reports, booking videos, dashcam videos, officer reports, witness reports and information, your criminal history, and a multitude other information.

During our investigation, we can oftentimes find problems with various areas of your case and the procedures used by the officer(s).  After our analysis, we will discuss the potential strengths/weaknesses of your case, and also explore plea options.  Even when there are issues that are discovered with your case, we will also work with the Prosecutor or District Attorney to go over your case, with the goal of arranging a plea, diversion, reduction in charges, or other agreement to resolve your case with the best possible outcome.  After these discussions, we will then discuss your options, including taking your case to trial and vigorously defending your rights or opting for a plea agreement if the risks of trial are simply too great.  Each case is different and is extremely factually specific.
