Serious Felony Crimes

Serious Felony Charges Require A Serious Defense

At Solomon & Peter, LLP, we focus our practice on serious felonies. These offenses include serious charges and significant penalties, up to life in prison and capital punishment, as Kansas and Missouri still have the death penalty. With these cases, the facts are all important. A careful and thorough analyses of these cases is essential, as they could mean the difference between a murder conviction and a successful claim of self-defense.

Because we focus on serious felonies, we take fewer cases than some firms. We accept this, as we know we owe our clients facing assault or a drug trafficking charge a high duty to provide the most comprehensive and zealous defense possible.

We Test The Prosecution

As defense attorneys, we see our role as providing a test for every prosecution. The standard for a conviction is guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. Our job is to make certain every reasonable doubt that exists in a case is made clear and obvious to the judge or jury.

The police and prosecution need to close cases. By exhaustively investigating every case, we challenge every prosecution and make it difficult for them to easily obtain a plea or a conviction. This helps our clients, as the prosecutor has to make the call to deal with a complex and time-consuming case, or to make a better offer to make the case go away.

We have represented clients with various felony charges, including:

  • Assault charges
  • Homicide
  • Burglary
  • Manslaughter
  • Domestic assault
  • Drug crimes

We Try Cases

The prosecution also knows we build every case for trial. Our lawyers have a great deal of experience in the courtroom and this means we are prepared and ready to try a case when necessary. The prosecution is required to prove every element of a criminal offense. If we find a weakness in their case, we understand how to undermine their case and obtain a win for our client.

We know that many people have never faced a judge in a criminal court with a felony. We have, and we can provide the reassurance and guidance that comes from that experience. Our attorneys will explain the process, the potential outcome and your options for your defense.
