Regardless of the charges against you, there’s a lawyer in the Kansas City, MO area who can help. Attorney Jeff Jarrett is a defense lawyer who can represent clients in DWI, traffic, drug, domestic violence, and other criminal charges.

A criminal case can be one of the most frightening legal scenarios that anyone finds themselves in. That fear comes from uncertainty. You may be well aware that you’re innocent. However, the jury doesn’t – and that’s the real issue. Additionally, prosecutors are highly-trained professionals who spend their careers putting people in jail. When you’re facing that level of sophistication in an opponent, you need an expert of your own on your side.
Luckily, Jeff is an experienced lawyer that can leverage his litigation experience to help clients who need a defense attorney for criminal charges. These cases can include felony or misdemeanor offenses like:
- Drug possession
- Domestic violence
These kinds of offenses can carry serious consequences including jail time and hefty fines. However, with professional, reliable legal help, you can face these charges in court and clear your name of any wrongdoing. This will keep you out of jail and help your criminal record clean.
Do you already have charges on your record that you need to remove? Jeff also has substantial experience helping his clients wipe their criminal records clean. By taking advantage of Missouri’s and Kansas’ expungement laws, Jeff can assist clients in removing any trace of criminal activities from their records. That’s especially helpful for young clients or those convicted of low-level drug offenses.
When to Hire a Domestic Violence Attorney
Attorney Jarrett can also help clients who are facing domestic violence charges. An individual may be accused of domestic assault if they are believed to have harmed another person in their family. For the purposes of the law, this includes any family member by blood or marriage, an individual the person has a child with, an individual that lives with (or used to live with) the person, or an individual that the person once dated. These charges are then sorted into three different categories:
- Third Degree: Punishable by up to one year in jail and a maximum fine of $1000. These charges may be given if the individual threatens a family member with bodily harm, actively injures the other person, or touches the individual in a provocative way.
- Second Degree: This can result in up to seven years in prison and a maximum fine of $5000, and may be given if a deadly weapon was involved in the assault or if serious injury is caused.
- First Degree: This charge may be given if the individual attempts to kill a family member or knowingly or recklessly causes them serious harm; it can result in 10—30 years or life in prison.
Domestic violence charges are serious offenses that can vastly complicate your life. If you find yourself facing them, you’ll want to contact a criminal defense lawyer for assistance. An attorney like Jeff Jarrett can mount a defense on your behalf and help you work towards the best possible outcome for your case.
