Unfortunately, we cannot discuss cases with unrepresented defendants by mail or phone. Our office will not discuss your case with you if you are charged with a felony. Your failure to appear in court may result in a warrant being issued for your arrest.

You always have the right to contact an attorney to find out what your legal options are. If you are not sure who to contact, please call the Missouri Bar Lawyer Referral Service at (573) 636-3635 or Since we represent the State of Missouri, we cannot and will not give you legal advice. Furthermore, we cannot recommend particular attorneys or provide referrals to attorneys. Additionally, if you have a question about a court date or the status of an outstanding warrant, you must contact the Circuit Clerk’s Office – our office cannot answer any questions about court dates or warrants in person or over the telephone.
