Put Decades Of Criminal Defense Experience On Your Side

If you are in Missouri or Kansas, or visiting from out of town, and need experienced and effective criminal defense, you are in the right place. For more than 45 years, I, attorney David Lurie, have worked on behalf of good people who have found themselves in tough situations. As an experienced and successful attorney, I understand what you are going through, your fears and concerns and what is at stake. I also understand the system. In short, I know what works and how to get results.

Attorney And Firm Founder David M. Lurie

I grew up in Springfield, Missouri, and have been practicing law for more than 45 years. I take an individualized and comprehensive approach to your case. This helps us reach a favorable resolution. I excel at Municipal and Circuit Court crimes, and after four decades, I have proven to be a highly effective criminal and traffic defense lawyer. I approach your case with discretion, integrity and attention to detail. I have worked as a court-approved mediator in Jackson County, where I actively listened to both sides to work toward a favorable resolution with a prosecutor or judge.
