Your future is important to me.  As an experienced criminal defense lawyer in the St. Joseph, Missouri area, I will work hard to protect you from fines, jail time, and the collateral consequences of a criminal conviction, such as the loss of your job, or the suspension of your drivers license.

I have worked in the Buchanan and Andrew County justice systems for more than 29 years, first as a public defender, and then a prosecutor.  In law school, I learned the law extensively. As a prosecutor, I learned how the legal system really works.  As a defense attorney, I use my knowledge of the law and the system to protect your rights and your freedom.
