Mitigate Not Litigate

Whatever you are charged with, chances are extremely good that I've successfully helped someone in a similar situation before. I draw on this experience, as well as the facts of your specific situation, to help the court see you as more than a single incident or a criminal charge. I work to represent you as a person, so that law enforcement, administrators and in rare instances, judges and juries can see the good person you are. This is perhaps the best and more effective way to mitigate your charges or lessen the punishment you may face instead of taking your case to trial.

Getting You The Help You Need

Though my primary duty is that of a lawyer, I approach every case with the full intent to help you as much as possible. That means dedicating myself to shaping how the prosecutor sees your case and achieving a positive result — but it also means that I am here to help you find assistance if you have an underlying cause for your legal situation (i.e., physical, emotional or psychological). I have an excellent team of independent care providers whom I can call upon and who will be excellent experts to testify at trial or sentencing.

The Power Of Negotiation

As the prosecutors in the area know my belief in mitigation, they do not harbor any bad feelings toward me. For this reason, I am in a great position to negotiate on your behalf to minimize the penalties you may face. However, no matter how much mitigating evidence we provide, sometimes prosecutors' offers are simply too harsh or nonexistent. In those situations we team with experienced litigators who can take your case to trial and zealously fight to protect your rights.

Contact Me For Strong Defense

From my offices in Kansas City and Lee's Summit, I am ideally situated to serve clients in both Kansas and Missouri, including Clay and Cass counties and Jackson and Platte counties as well as those visiting from out of town. I also serve immigrants who are facing criminal charges. I am familiar with the criminal laws of both Kansas and Missouri and can help you preserve your record and future.

Contact me at 816-221-5900. We will talk about your situation and how I can help you frame your case and mitigate the penalties. You can also email me.
