Representative Case:

State ex rel. Knipping v. Sweeney, 850 S.W.2d 94 (Mo. Supreme Ct.)

At the Doskocil Law Firm we believe knowing our clients well enhances our representation to meet the needs and goals of the people we represent. Visiting clients in their home or office is a great start to getting to know you better. Using cell phones so you can actually talk to us, when you call, wherever we are, assures you that we are interested and concerned about providing you the best service possible.

Since 1959 our experience and knowledge of the law provides you with the answers you need, when you need them, and reduces overall legal costs. Most of our clients are referrals from other clients, or repeat business. We consider this the greatest compliment.

We offer real legal services for the real needs of people. We are experienced in helping people start their own business, planning their estate with a will or trust, collecting damages when in an auto accident, traffic or criminal charges, probate or divorce. If we can’t help you, we will refer you to someone who can. We want to be your lawyer, for you and your family. The lawyer you call first for all of your needs.
