Criminal Law

Arrested does not mean convicted and we are here to help.  There are two major types of crime: felonies and misdemeanors. The difference between these two types of crime is defined by the potential punishment for committing them.  At Smith-Hynes Law Firm, we understand these complexities as they relate to each specific criminal charge you may face.  We are committed to your rights of innocent until proven guilty.   We handle a diverse spectrum of criminal cases, ranging from domestic violence crimes and drug crimes to driving under the influence (DUI), theft, and fraud. We represent defendants facing criminal charges in municipal and state courts in the State of Missouri.  From beginning to end, our attorneys have you covered researching new case law, statutes, crimes codes and procedural law, building your defense and drafting and filing motions.  Our attorneys ensure you are prepared for your day in court and advocate for you if the case goes to trial.  Mr. Smith-Hynes is a municipal judge himself and therefore is confident and respected both inside a court room as well as out.
