Welcome to this Web site about my law practice.

I am a solo practitioner in St. Louis, Missouri. I am building this Web site to provide information about my law practice.

I practice law in Missouri as a solo practitioner so I can control my law practice--especially the number of cases I handle at any one time. Solo practice allows me to represent my clients the way I would want my lawyer to represent me if I needed a lawyer.

Most of my legal experience has been in criminal law as a criminal defense lawyer. I help people at one of the most difficult times in their lives: when they have been accused of a crime. My job is to remind the prosecutor that its job is to seek justice.

As a criminal defense lawyer, I'm often asked, "How can you defend those people?" No one ever asks a similar question of doctors or ministers. I defend people accused of crimes so they will have someone to speak for them in the courtroom. Justice requires that the decision-maker know the whole story before issuing a verdict or passing judgment.
