PRACTICE AREAS

Truck and Car

Crashes

and Injury

Time matters.  Let's get to work.

ACCIDENTS DON'T HAPPEN. Crashes happen.  If you are involved in a crash, you expect answers.  Why did this happen?  Who is responsible?  Who's paying for your car and, more importantly, your medical bills?  Let's investigate, find the answers and hold the right person accountable.

 

TIME MATTERS.  Insurance companies hire "go" teams at the first notice of a crash.  How do I know?  I have worked for them.  Let me put that knowledge to use and fight for you.  If you've been hurt in a truck crash, contact me.

Workers' Compensation

Get the medical treatment you need and maximize your disability settlement.

Every day, workers across Missouri and Illinois suit up and put their best effort on the line for the company they work for.  Sometimes, those workers get injured.  When you're injured, you expect to be treated like the dedicated employee you are.  

 

When that doesn't happen, you need someone who is knowledgeable and experienced in navigating the complex rules and laws of the workers' compensation system.  Whether you need additional medical treatment or consultation on disability and your rights, contact me for a free consultation.

Criminal Law

Traffic, DWI, Juvenile Matters, Misdemeanors and Non-Violent Felonies

When you are charged with a crime, you need someone who knows the law, the potential punishment and the people involved.  Let me provide you with the guidance, advice and representation you need to get through this trying time.  Whether it is fighting the charges and trying the case to a jury or negotiating a plea agreement, I'll work to keep you on the right side of the law.  Time is of the essence, so contact me today to discuss your options.

Estate and Business Planning

Be Prepared and Protect Your Legacy.

Be prepared.  It's a motto we all learned early on.  From a business and personal standpoint, there's tremendous value and peace of mind that comes from being prepared for life's unexpected and unplanned events.  Thinking of and evaluating risks helps you plan and execute a proper estate and/or business plan.

From a personal standpoint, we are experienced in preparing life and estate planning documents, including Wills, Trusts and Powers of Attorney for Health Care (also known as "Living Wills") and Financial Decisions.  These documents help plan your legacy and how you want your possessions, real estate and finances to be managed in the event you are hurt, disabled or pass away.  Proper planning takes the guesswork out of your affairs and secures the future of your loved ones.

From a business standpoint, we are well versed in asset protection documents, incorporation and management of your business.  We can assist with drafting and review of contracts, purchase agreements, partnership agreements, leases and pretty much any other business operating agreement.  If the need arises, matters sometimes need to be settled through litigation and we are prepared to undertake such efforts.

Contact me to discuss and help shape your plan for the future.

FAMILY LAW

The emotional toll of a divorce is enough to deal with.  The financial and family toll can be even worse.  You need counsel who can clearly and concisely explain the law and your rights to make sure you and your family are protected in the future.  

 

Even if you have worked out the terms of your divorce with your spouse in an amicable fashion, it is helpful to know your rights and have an attorney review the agreement before you sign and file anything.  Contact me today to discuss your options.
