STATE AND FEDERAL CRIMINAL DEFENSE IN MISSOURI AND KANSAS
In serious criminal cases, whether prosecuted by a State or Federal prosecutor, Defendants have basic rights during the criminal justice process. At the outset of your case, you are presumed innocent. You have the right not to incriminate yourself and to force the Government to prove you guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. You have a right to a speedy trial by an impartial jury where you can present your defense to the charges. Lastly, you have the right to retain the attorney of your choice.
It is our belief that every client deserves a skilled and dedicated defense attorney when facing criminal charges. Whether you are charged with a felony or misdemeanor, State or Federal charge, we have experience on a wide array of criminal offenses.
We believe that the prosecution should have to meet their burden of proving you guilty beyond a reasonable doubt, and, in their attempt to prove you guilty, we will vigorously defend you against every accusation they bring.
If you are accused of a crime, let our office help. We have over 25 years experience in prosecuting and defending criminal charges at all levels. Use our experience and insight on both sides of a criminal charge to defend your case. You may contact us for a free consultation to discuss the facts of your case with a qualified attorney who can assist you in determining the best legal strategy for your specific case.
TRAFFIC AND MUNICIPAL COURT
Many people don't realize that traffic citations can have more severe implications than points on their driver's license and fines. Even one ticket can result in significantly higher insurance premiums. Depending upon the charge, you may also face jail, traffic school, and license suspension.
The good news is that if you have a traffic ticket you are dealing with, you may be able to save your driving record and avoid higher insurance rates by fighting the ticket (even if you have already plead guilty to the charge). In most of these types of cases, our lawyers are able to negotiate a plea with the prosecutor that results in zero points and no report of the ticket being sent to the Missouri Director of Revenue and being placed on your permanent record. By investing your time and retaining an experienced criminal defense lawyer to contest your traffic ticket, you may save your driving record and avoid skyrocketing insurance premiums.
DRIVING UNDER THE INFLUENCE / DRIVING WHILE INTOXICATED
Driving under the Influence (DUI) or driving while intoxicated (DWI) is a serious charge that requires a vigorous defense. In Missouri, the DUI/DWI charge carries many potential penalties, including harsh fines, imprisonment, and the loss of your driving privileges. The assistance of a qualified DUI/DWI attorney is necessary to effectively represent your interests in court. At our office, we are experienced in representing clients on DUI/DWI charges.
From the moment we are retained, your best interests are our single concern. We review all of the State's evidence against you, including video and scientific blood analysis, to determine the best defense strategy, but only after discussing the facts of your case with you. We are well versed in the scientific defenses involved in blood alcohol content analysis. Our attorneys have extensive experience both prosecuting these types of cases and defending them. We have represented the Director of Revenue at the adiminstration hearing level seeking license suspensions and now use that knowledge to fight for you to maintain your driving privileges and avoid license suspension.
At all stages, we remain in frequent contact to ensure that you are informed about your case status and to answer any of your questions that may arise during the process. It is our policy that all clients are treated with dignity and that their calls to our office are promptly returned.
If you are charged with DUI or DWI, please do not hesitate to contact our office for a free consultation with an attorney.
AUTO ACCIDENTS / PERSONAL INJURY MISSOURI AND KANSAS
Motor vehicle accidents often result in serious injuries. Whether bad drivers or shoddy roads are to blame, tens of thousands of people in the United States are injured or killed every year in auto accidents.
While money cannot restore health or return a loved one to a grieving family, it can help alleviate some of the financial pressures. In addition to medical bills and lost past and future income, victims can also seek damages for pain and suffering and property.
However, it is important to see an auto accident attorney as soon as possible after an auto accident so that witnesses can be interviewed while their memory is still fresh and evidence from the
scene of the collision and the vehicles can be collected before it is destroyed. Also, there are specific time limitations that apply to these cases requiring that you file your lawsuit within
specific period of time following the collision or your suit may be barred. These limitations vary from Missouri to Kansas and are strictly enforced.
The Bologna & Blair Law Firm is made up of attorneys with a great deal of experience in injury cases, who are committed to obtaining the best result for their clients. There are a number of Kansas City area personal injury lawyers, but only a few can match the success and experience of The Bologna & Blair Law Firm.
