If you have gone to trial and lost and want to appeal, you will need an experienced appellate litigator on your side. The rulings of the trial judge during trial are subject to judicial review by the appellate courts. You need an attorney who will review the entire record thoroughly and who knows how to spot the legal issues to raise on appeal. I am that attorney.
In Missouri, individuals can now begin petitioning courts to expunge old criminal convictions. The new Missouri expungement statute went into effect in 2018. Not all crimes in Missouri are expungable, and certain time limits apply, but if you are successful, you will be allowed to maintain that you have never been convicted of the crime(s) that were expunged. I can help you through this process.
