Lee's Summit Homicide Defense Attorneys

Missouri and Kansas take a hard stance against convicted violent offenders. If you are found guilty of a violent crime — such as assault, battery, murder or manslaughter — your life will never be the same.

Serious criminal charges deserve serious criminal defense. Located in Lee's Summit, The Law Offices of Taylor & Taylor, LLC, provides dedicated defense to clients throughout Missouri and Kansas who have been charged with violent crimes.

Defense Against Battery, Assault, Murder And Other Violent Crimes

Under Missouri and Kansas law, crimes against the person are typically thought of as "violent" offenses. These charges include offenses such as:

  • Assault
  • Battery
  • Robbery
  • Murder
  • Manslaughter

Depending on the type of charge, you are facing years in prison if convicted. In Missouri and Kansas, murder convictions may be punishable by death or by lifetime imprisonment. If you've been charged with murder or manslaughter, you need a homicide defense lawyer who has gone the mile and successfully litigated these types of charges in court.

Attorney Michael Taylor has 20 years of litigation experience. Let his experience work for you.

A Former Prosecutor Fighting For You

Michael Taylor has a proven track record of success. As a former prosecutor, he has in-depth knowledge of the criminal justice system, local police departments and the prosecutor's office. This experience often means the difference between a conviction and harsh sentence, and a future still open to possibility.

Mr. Taylor is constantly working for a beneficial resolution. If a plea deal will provide you with the best possible outcome, he will provide you with strength during negotiation with the prosecution. If litigation is the best way to resolve your charges he will go to court and try your case.
