St. Louis Criminal Lawyers

Missouri DUI/DWI Defense Attorney, Drug Charge Law Office

If you have been charged with a criminal offense, it is important to exercise your right to remain silent.

The Fifth Amendment of the Constitution of the United States gives you the right to protect yourself from self-incrimination by remaining silent. Use this right. Do not volunteer any information to the police or other members of law enforcement. You are not the best person to tell your side of the story — your attorney is.

Protecting Your Rights and Your Freedom

Let a criminal defense lawyer from Allan & Summary, L.C., speak on your behalf. We will protect your rights and advocate for a positive outcome to your case. We defend clients charged with a wide range of felony and misdemeanor offenses, including:

  • DUI, vehicular assault, careless and reckless driving
  • Shoplifting, other forms of theft
  • Assault
  • Drug possession and sales
  • Synthetic Marijuana and other drugs
  • Child pornography
  • Solicitation
  • Domestic violence
  • White collar crime

Law enforcement will try to obtain statements from you not to exonerate you, but to build a case against you. They will use your statements against you to eliminate possible defenses. Do not let this happen to you. To preserve your options, exercise your right to remain silent.

St. Louis White Collar Crimes Law Attorney

White-collar crimes are nonviolent actions which break the law. In addition, the government is now taking an aggressive investigative posture toward businesses, especially those subject to government regulations.

The officers and directors of companies are subject to intense scrutiny concerning not only their decisions but the overall business practices of the company. Civil cases in this environment have significant criminal implications. Criminal matters now proceed in parallel with civil investigations and the combination can result in maximizing the economic exposure of companies.

Talk to a Lawyer Before Talking to the Police

If you have been charged with a criminal offense, it is extremely important that you hire an attorney first before you give a statement.

Do not be fooled by threats, intimidation, or offers to “help you out.” Law enforcement has absolutely no authority to cut deals to anyone, and many people are unaware that law enforcement can tell you whatever they want to try to get a confession from you. Know that they are not trying to get you a “good deal”—that is your attorney’s job. Any information that you have that is valuable to law enforcement can be passed on through your attorney to make sure you get something in return.

We will review your case, advise you of your options and vigorously defend you. Our goal is to minimize the negative consequences of your encounter with the law.
