Answers for criminal defendants

If you have never been involved with the criminal justice system before, you may have many questions. This website includes informative articles, videos, and downloads about the criminal justice process. These materials will provide you with valuable information that can answer many questions you may have about what might happen in your criminal case.

Our commitment to our clients

Keeping our clients fully informed is a top priority at our Kansas criminal defense firm. We have heard too many clients of other attorneys complain that they never knew what was going on in their case. We never want one of our clients to feel that way. We provide each client with the phone number and email address of his or her attorney. We tell our clients to contact us with any question, no matter how small.

Some attorneys avoid frank discussions with their clients. They repeatedly tell a client that they are going to fight for him. Then on the day of a hearing or trial they advise the client to just plead guilty. We won’t do that. We believe every client is entitled to the truth 100 percent of the time. Without exception, we provide our clients with an honest assessment of their case. We won’t tell you your case looks good if it doesn’t. Virtually every client in a criminal case will be faced at some point with the decision of how to proceed. Without an open, honest assessment of the case, no client can make an intelligent decision.
