  • What Can Financial Recovery Help Cover?

    While no amount of money can undo an accident or wrongful death, we work hard to recover compensation to cover costs such as property damage, property loss, loss of past and future income, medical bills, physical therapy costs, and funeral expenses to help the victim of the accident get back to living life as normally as possible. By retaining a knowledgeable attorney at our firm to help gather facts and evidence for a case and filing a case within the statute of limitations, our clients have a much better chance of winning the compensation that they are looking for.
  • What Is Negligence?

    By legal definition, negligence is the failure on the part of a person or organization to use "reasonable care", which results in damage, injury, or death to another person. In order to win a negligence case, the person injured must prove that the defendant was negligent in four areas: duty, breach, causation, and damages. We represent clients who are victims of medical negligence, insurance claim disputes, personal injury, and other commercial litigation.
  • How Long Is the Statute of Limitations in Missouri?

    In the state of Missouri, misdemeanor criminal charges have a one-year statute of limitations, personal injury claims must be filed within two years, and fraud and debt collection cases have a ten-year statute of limitations. As soon as there is a possibility of a claim, it is important to consult with a lawyer at our firm in order to determine the best legal steps to take. By contacting us quickly, we can get to work on the case as quickly as possible.
  • What Are Parental Rights?

    A parent has the right to make decisions in regards to a child's health care, education, religion, and more. After a separation or divorce, parental rights extend to visitation and custody rights, which may need to be determined by the court. A parent's rights can be terminated by the court in cases of substance abuse, physical or other abuse, neglect, abandonment, or criminal record or voluntarily terminated by a father who has never established or claimed his paternity.
  • What Is the Difference Between a Felony & Misdemeanor Charge?

    In the state of Missouri, misdemeanor crimes are distinguished from felony charges by the monetary value of property taken, the amount of drugs in a person's possession, or the seriousness of an injury or harm caused to another person. Misdemeanor crimes range from theft to the possession of 35 grams or less of marijuana, whereas felony crime charges include crimes such as fraud, rape, manslaughter, etc. Our state categorizes misdemeanors into Class A, Class B, and Class C categories and are punishable by a minimum of 15 days in jail and a fine of anywhere from $300 to $1000. Felonies are classified into Class A, Class B, Class C, or Class D categories and are punishable by a minimum of one year in jail or prison and extensive fines. No matter what type of criminal charge a person is facing, it is incredibly important to retain an experienced and knowledgeable attorney as soon as possible to protect his or her rights and future.
  • When Does a Case Go to Trial?

    Depending on the details specific to a case, it may go to trial if a verdict or settlement cannot be reached outside of court. In order to avoid going to trial, we can work hard to help convince the prosecuting attorneys to not prosecute the case any further and even to try to prove that your charges were not filed on legal grounds which could result in your case being dismissed completely. If we do have to take a family law, personal injury, criminal defense, DWI, or traffic offense case to court, our clients can be confident in our aggressive trial lawyers to advocate for each person's rights and best interests.
