If you have been arrested or questioned about a possible crime, it is important to speak to a criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. Police do not simply just want to “hear your side of the story”. They want you to say something inconsistent and incriminating to use against you later in court because it makes their job a lot easier. Instead of incriminating yourself, contact Glaesman Law Firm and speak to our attorney Lucas Glaesman. With over a decade of experience, Attorney Glaesman knows how to stop the investigation in its track and fight the case against you. 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.

What We Do

We defend real people against serious accusations and there are no charges we wont fight. Everyday we stand up in court and advocate for our clients charged with the following offenses:

DUI Defense

As common as DUIs may be, they can have life-long consequences. Driving while intoxicated (DWI) and driving under the influence (DUI) are criminal offenses in Missouri that often have a huge impact on your daily life. If not handled correctly, you could lose your license, your job and pay thousands of extra dollars in fines and costs.

At Glaesman Law, we meticulously scrutinize each DUI arrest, blood or breath test, and field sobriety test to help you avoid license suspension or criminal penalties. If they want to accuse you of driving drunk, we’re going to make them prove it.

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, delivering drugs and drug trafficking. The punishment you are exposed to when charged and convicted with a drug crime in Missouri depends heavily on the type and quantity of drug involved and your own criminal history. First time offenders caught with a small, user amount of methamphetamines substance face less significant penalties and punishment than persistent drug offenders with a large amount of heroine or fentanyl.

While the State of Missouri has legalized recreational marijuana in some circumstances, prosecutors across the state are taking aim at other, more serious drug offenses. If you are facing drug charges in Missouri, you need a criminal defense attorney who not only knows the ins and outs of the Missouri drug laws, but who can effectively deal with prosecutors and judges trying to punish you for them.

Call us today to talk to an attorney about defending you from criminal charges.

Gun Crimes

While owning a gun is your right in Missouri, but there is a fine line between good, responsible gun ownership and unlawful gun use or possession. You must always carry and use your weapon in the legal manner set out by law.

The hope of every responsible gun owner is that they will never be in a situation where the need to use it. But, if you have discharged your weapon for any reason, you need an attorney experienced with gun laws because your use of that gun will be highly scrutinized by the police and prosecuting attorney. And when it is, if you haven’t followed every gun law to the letter, they will find something to charge you with. At Glaesman Law, we commonly defend gun owners against charges such as unlawful use of a weapon, unlawful possession of a firearm, felon in possession of a firearm, and sale of prohibited firearm.

Domestic Violence Crimes

Domestic violence often results in criminal charges in the State of Missouri. In fact, there are so many criminal cases relating to domestic violence that many counties have their very own Domestic Violence docket devoted solely to prosecuting cases of domestic assault, harassment, stalking, and order of protection violations. If you are charged with a felony domestic violence crime, the prosecuting attorney will try to put you in prison. Full Stop.

Domestic violence cases are incredibly complex. Once the State gets involved in a domestic violence situation, it can be like a run away train. Even when the “victim” later recants their statement or otherwise chooses not to prosecute, the State will still try to win their case against you. Prosecutors will try to produce other evidence such as your own statements, 911 calls/recordings, jail calls/recordings, body cam video, and even third party testimony. Once the State gets involved in a domestic violence situation, it can be like a run away train.
