Missouri Criminal Defense Lawyers Protect Clients’ Rights

Former prosecutors pursue favorable results for individuals facing charges

When you’re accused of a crime, retaining a skilled, experienced advocate gives you the best chance at a favorable result. The lawyers of Williams, Robinson, Rigler & Buschjost, P.C. in Rolla understand the rights of the accused and work tirelessly to safeguard their clients’ fundamental rights. Our Rolla attorneys have provided decades of exemplary advocacy throughout south-central Missouri, working both for the government and in private practice — experience that gives our clients a distinct advantage. In cases ranging from homicide trials to traffic violation disputes, our firm will develop the strongest defense possible so that you can obtain a fair outcome either in court or through an agreement with prosecutors.

Rolla law firm handles a full range of felony and misdemeanor cases

With three former prosecutors at our firm, we understand how to defend clients against all types of felony and misdemeanor charges, including those relating to:

  • Drug crimes — In cases involving drug possession or sale, slight distinctions can mean the difference between an acceptable result and years of incarceration. We vigorously confront prosecutors and advocate for treatment and other alternatives to prison when appropriate.
  • Theft and property offenses — We assert all available defenses for individuals who are accused of property crimes like robbery, theft and vandalism.
  • Assault and homicide — Serious matters involving allegations of physical harm demand high-quality representation from a firm with a strong track record. Our seasoned criminal defense attorneys have significant trial experience and can handle difficult cases.
  • Probation violations — Someone who violates the terms of their probation faces severe consequences. Even conduct that is not unlawful or dangerous can result in a renewed prison sentence. If you have been accused of a probation violation, we can represent you at the hearing and advocate for a fair resolution.

No matter what the accusation against you might be, our firm is committed to preserving your fundamental rights in state or federal court.

Skilled advocates defend against drunk driving allegations

Being charged with driving while intoxicated can have severe consequences. Even a first DWI offense can trigger license suspension, a fine and even a jail sentence of up to six months. Our firm conducts a detailed review of the relevant circumstances and pinpoints flaws in the law enforcement process. We can detect flaws such as improper stops and tainted tests so that you are accorded the fair treatment you are entitled to.

Comprehensive legal support for actions relating to traffic violations

Reckless driving, speeding and other traffic violations can cost you both money and your ability to drive. We know that errors frequently occur during traffic enforcement, and we can uncover flaws in law enforcement’s tests and procedures and challenge questionable evidence that might be prejudicing the case against you. Our attorneys work diligently to achieve a successful result so that you can continue to fulfill your family and work responsibilities.
