The DUI attorneys in our Wichita, Kansas City, Lawrence & Topeka offices defend state and municipal DUI and DWI prosecutions. Our lawyers have represented hundreds of individuals charged with felony and misdemeanor driving under the influence or driving while intoxicated.

Criminal Defense

Perhaps the most critical decision you make when charged with a crime is who to hire as your criminal defense attorney. You need a lawyer who you can trust to aggressively defend the charges and evaluate all defenses.

Federal Crimes

We have defended indictments for mail and wire fraud, bank fraud, medicare and medicaid fraud, securities fraud, embezzlement, money laundering, and income tax evasion.

Computer Crimes

Federal agents and local police frequently begin investigations by seizing home and business computers. As soon as your home or business computer is seized, you need an attorney who knows computer forensics.

Civil Forfeiture

Police assume that a large amount of cash means that drugs are somehow involved and can seize the cash even when there is no hard evidence of a connection to drug trafficking.
