Criminal Defense Attorneys in Columbia

Bringing Over 44 Years of Experience to Your Case

In Mid-Missouri, the courts take all forms of crime seriously, from small traffic violations to extreme cases of driving while intoxicated. If you are charged with a misdemeanor or felony, you could face hefty fines and extended jail time. And the crime will show up on background checks, costing you opportunities for future employment.

Consequently, you shouldn't leave your fate in the hands of an unsympathetic judge and jury. To put your case in the best light, talk to the team at Murray Law Firm.

We have been serving clients since 1985 and have built a strong reputation for effectiveness and care for our clients.

Cases We Handle

Murray Law Firm handles all types of criminal offenses including but not limited to the following:

Dedicated Assistance for Misdemeanor Cases

Misdemeanors in Missouri include less serious crimes such as minor theft, small marijuana offenses, domestic assault, driving under the influence, probation violations, stalking, and driving with a revoked license. These crimes often carry fines less than $1000 and jail time of up to a year.

Just because these crimes are less serious in nature doesn't mean that we will take your situation lightly. Our Columbia criminal defense attorneys can help you navigate the legal system to lessen your sentence or work to have your case dismissed entirely.

Legal Support & Consultation for Felony Cases

Felonies represent larger, more potentially damaging crimes, including drug possession, assault, multiple DWIs, arson, grand theft, and kidnapping. Due to their serious nature, they can carry much longer jail times that vary based on the facts and circumstances of the case. In cases considered to be the most violent, the penalty may be a lifetime in prison. Furthermore, felonies can accrue thousands upon thousands of dollars in fines.

Before you panic, however, keep in mind that our criminal defense lawyers are here to help you, regardless of the circumstances. We will assemble the facts regarding your case and present a solid foundation before the court.
