 Client Testimonial

"I was charged with 3 felony sexual assault charges on a co-worker. My bail was set at $10,000, but I knew I did not commit these crimes, it was a co-worker out to get me! I interviewed several law firms and decided to hire Attorney St.Louis and I'm extremely thankful that I did! The D.A. was offering 1 year in jail, 5 years probation and registry with the sex registry board. It would have ruined my life. Attorney St.Louis turned down the offer and took it to trial. He interviewed witnesses and had his private investigator research the case. We went to a jury trial, the jury deliberated for only 1 hour - I was found Not Guilty! He literally saved my life! If your ever falsely accused, do yourself a favor and hire this man, he will fight for you!" - Edwaurdo, C. Oct.24, 2012
