Criminal Defense Attorney in St. Louis, Missouri

If you have been arrested for a crime, it is important to speak to a criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. Police officers will try to talk to you to “hear your side of the story.” It is not wise to speak to the police because they will likely use what you say against you in court. Instead, contact Glaesman Law Firm, and speak to our attorney Lucas Glaesman. With over a decade of experience, Attorney Glaesman will research the details of your case and build a strong strategy to defend your rights. Contact us today in St. Louis, Missouri, to schedule your initial consultation with Lucas. We also have an office in St. Charles, and serve all of the surrounding areas.

Common Cases That We Take On

We are proud to provide a holistic approach to criminal defense and service all areas of the field. While we defend any criminal charges, we commonly represent clients in the following cases:

DUI Defense

As common as DUIs may be, they can have life-long consequences. Penalties for a DUI in the state of Missouri can include but not be limited to:

  • Up to six months in jail
  • Fines of up to $1,000
  • License suspension
  • 8 points added to your driving record

The first DUI offense is a Class B Misdemeanor. The maximum jail sentence for a Class B Misdemeanor is six months in jail and/or a fine of up to $500. The more DUIs a person gets, the harsher the penalties become. If you have been arrested for a DUI in St. Louis or St. Charles, Missouri, contact our criminal defense attorney Lucas Glaesman and he will challenge the police officers’ case.

Drug Crimes

Missouri law and federal law take drug crimes very seriously. A person can get charged and arrested for a number of drug crimes, including drug possession, drug manufacturing, drug distribution, and delivering drugs. Missouri categorizes these controlled substances into five “schedules.”

Schedule I drugs are considered the most dangerous substances, and Schedule V drugs are considered the least dangerous. The more severe the crime and drug, the more severe the punishment. Being arrested for a drug crime can lead to life-altering consequences. If you have been arrested for a drug crime, contact our criminal defense attorney from Glaesman Law Firm today and he will fight for you.

Gun Crimes

While owning a gun is your right in Missouri, there is a fine line in regards to what is legal and what is illegal. A person can be arrested for any of the following gun crimes:

  • Armed Criminal Action (ACA)
  • Unlawful Use of a Weapon (UUW)
  • Federal Gun Crimes
  • Unlawful Possession of a Firearm

If you are convicted of any of these crimes, you will be forced to forfeit your right to bear arms and can be sentenced to time in a state or federal prison. If you have been arrested for any crimes involving a gun, contact us immediately and let Lucas Glaesman defend your rights.
