Skilled Trial Lawyers · Attentive Personal Service

Since 1971, our lawyers have served the legal needs of Lafayette County and Mid-Missouri, focusing in the following practice areas.

  • Criminal Defense
    Because everyone deserves a strong criminal defense, our attorneys help clients charged with a range of felonies and misdemeanors, including DUI/DWI and drug charges.
  • Family Law
    We approach each family law case with respect for our clients and those they care about. Our family law attorneys counsel individuals and families in cases of divorce, child custody, child support, spousal support, adoptions, and more.
  • Personal Injury
    If you have been injured in an automobile accident, or slipped on someone else’s property, you owe it to yourself to consult with a personal injury lawyer. We will help you get the medical attention and compensation you deserve. We also handle medical malpractice cases.
  • Estate Planning 
    For all of your estate planning needs, whether it be a will, living will, trust, durable power of attorney, advance health care directive, guardianship / conservatorship or other matter, we provide comprehensive estate planning that can help meet your future goals and wishes.
  • Probate 
    What can be a time-consuming and complex process, our experienced probate lawyers can handle this on your behalf, in the most efficient and cost-effective manner possible.

Our clients can expect clear communication throughout their case. Our attorneys have represented hearing impaired clients and are accustomed to communicating through an American Sign Language (ASL) translator.
