Rick seemed to know everything. A few phone calls to prosecutors he's worked with for years, and may case was done. A few court appearances, and no record.Jun 14, 2017

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I charge a flat fee for criminal cases, though the amount is not set. The price is based on the estimated amount of work. A simple speeding ticket requires less time than investigating and trying a complex felony. When we talk, I will be able to determine an initial plan for resolving the case in your favor, and the fee will be based on the work required to represent you.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?As soon as possible, we will meet for an initial consultation at no cost to you. Our goal is to provide immediate advice and to start developing our plan of attack. We will talk about interacting with the police and whether or not it is a good idea. When we speak, we will start figuring out possible arrest details and how long you will be in custody. You will want to know the charges, and we will search the local court databases, or even call prosecutors, to get as much initial information as we can. We will also determine if a bond or bail is required, and how to post it and get released. The primary goal is to get freedom back as quickly as possible and to keep it for as long as possible.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I graduated with my law degree from the University of Kansas in 2000. I initially started working for a large corporate law firm, but quickly moved to the public defender's office so I could get in front of a jury and start directly helping clients. I started my law firm in 2005, and have continued to represent clients on all types of criminal matters and civil rights cases, from federal wiretaps and conspiracies, drug cases, sex crimes, homicides, and suing law enforcement for police brutality.
