St. Louis Violent Crimes Defense Lawyers

Murder Defense Attorneys

When you face serious criminal charges, including accusations of murder, assault or other violent crimes, the lawyer you choose to represent you is critical. Your whole life may be at stake — your reputation, your freedom and your future. You want an attorney with a full understanding of the criminal justice system, who has the tools and the knowledge to protect your rights.

At The Marks Law Firm, L.L.C., our lawyers have more than 60 years of combined legal experience. We have personally handled more than 1,000 criminal trials in the state and federal courts in Missouri, and we have a comprehensive understanding of the laws and process, as well as the tactics employed by prosecutors. Because of our extensive experience, we can quickly determine whether your interests will best be served by seeking a plea agreement, or whether you want to fight for your rights in court. We have the knowledge, the skill, the experience and the resources to protect your constitutional rights.

Our Violent Crimes Defense Practice

We aggressively defend people charged with any type of violent crime, including:

  • Homicide, from negligent homicide to manslaughter to murder
  • Assault and/or battery
  • Sex crimes such as rape or sexual assault
  • Weapons offenses

When you hire us to defend you in a prosecution for a violent crime, we will move swiftly to protect your rights. We will immediately investigate the facts and circumstances of your case, including the actions of police and prosecutors. We will verify that there was probable cause for any search, seizure or arrest, and that you were notified of your Miranda rights if taken into custody. We will also interview all potential witnesses, including anyone who will be testifying against you, so that we can determine the strengths and weaknesses of your case, and formulate a strategy to best protect your interests.
