The criminal defense firm has tried over 500 federal criminal cases and many more at the state level in Missouri. They have litigated over 150 appeals and argued cases in the Missouri Supreme Court.

Professional recognition is rewarding, but the ability to help clients in their most difficult situations is what drives the firm.
