Criminal Defense

Stilley Law provides proven results for people accused of crimes ranging from misdemeanors to serious felonies. Stilley Law offers free consultations for criminal cases to discuss your legal rights and defense strategy. We will provide you knowledgeable representation as well as practical advice to help you deal with the situation and fight against the prosecution. When arrested or charged with a crime, it is of utmost importance that you know your rights. Before answering questions or being interrogated by the police, you should request an attorney – even if you are innocent of the crime being investigated. Call Stilley Law to schedule your free consultation.

Our firm is prepared and ready to defend you against City and State criminal offenses, including:

DWI

We are one of the most prominent driving while intoxicated firms in the Joplin area. We will help you fight to stay out of jail and deal with issues related to your driver’s license and the Department of Revenue.

Drug Charges

We handle all drug-related charges ranging from simple possession to felony trafficking and conspiracy.

Loss of Employment

If charged with a second time DWI/DUI, you may be charged as a prior offender and face more severe criminal penalties and a greater loss of driving privileges. If charged with a third time DWI/DUI, you will likely be charged with a felony and face the possibility of four years in prison and a ten year denial of your driving privileges. There is a time limit to contest the suspension or revocation of your driving privilege and this deadline is very short.

It is important to hire an experienced and aggressive attorney immediately to protect your freedom and driving privileges

Personal Injury

Auto Accidents

We can assist you to ensure you are fairly compensated by the insurance company for your injuries and damages. There is no fee upfront for this type of case – we do not receive anything until we recover money for you.

Traffic Citations

We can represent you if you receive a ticket for traffic citations such as:

Speeding

Failure to Yield

Failure to Stop

No Insurance

Improper Lane Use

Driving While Suspended/Revoked

Even a simple speeding ticket can come with consequences, including accrued points on your driver’s license and increased insurance rates. You should consult with an attorney to find out if the ticket can be reduced to a non-moving violation to avoid these negative outcomes. We can take the burden off of you and generally finalize the ticket without you ever having to appear in Court.

Expungements

In the state of Missouri certain convictions and arrests may be able to be expunged but it is an in-depth process with many exclusions. Speak to one of our experienced attorneys to see if your particular situation is eligible for expungement.
