Our Approach

HERE’S SOME INSIGHT INTO WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT FROM US.

FIRST, LET’S FIGURE OUT
HOW YOU GOT HERE.

One key point: we don’t see our clients as criminals. To us, you’re a good person when it comes down to it and you need help with a difficult situation. We’ll figure this out together.

NEXT, WE’LL INFORM YOU
OF YOUR OPTIONS.

We recognize that one of your main concerns is uncertainty about what the future may bring. We’ll answer the questions you have and lay out the next steps for you to consider. You won’t be alone in this.

THEN, WE’LL FIGHT TIRELESSLY
ON YOUR BEHALF.

As your attorneys, we will keep you informed every step of the way and assure your complete understanding of potential outcomes so you can make informed decisions.

WHAT TO DO AFTER YOU’RE ARRESTED

BE MINDFUL OF
WHAT YOU SAY

Remember, everything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. Be careful what information you volunteer and when in doubt, don’t say a word.

MAKE THE MOST
OF YOUR PHONE CALL

Dial a local bail bonds company so you can get out of jail, call an attorney, or contact a trusted friend or family member who can take those steps for you.

WHEN GOOD PEOPLE FIND THEMSELVES IN
TOUGH SITUATIONS, THE ERKER LAW FIRM
CAN HELP YOU SIFT THROUGH.

Our attorneys work hard. They aren’t afraid to complete a case to the fullest extent — no matter the countless records, videos, or audio tapes there may be to sift through. You see, at the end of the day, what this work comes down to for us is giving you the ability to move on with your life. Our attorneys say that being able to have this kind of impact on people’s lives gives them all the satisfaction they need.

We get that when you come in to talk with us, you may be feeling defeated. Talking about it is the last thing you want to do; you didn’t want to be in this position in the first place. But once you start talking through the issues with us, and seeing progress being made, you’ll realize that you’re well on your way back to focusing on the things that matter in life.

When we talk about your possibilities, what we’re really doing is establishing a baseline for how your case will play out. With our lawyers’ decades of experience between them, they are well aware of how to tackle whatever your case may involve. However, it’s up to you to take the first step and make contact for an initial consultation. Remember, this is a two-way effort.

We love being able to serve the community in our home of Kansas City. This is a great place to be, full of good people who just want to make sure the future is as secure as it can be.

Whether you’re dealing with family law (such as divorce or child custody) or felony criminal defense (drug crimes, sex crimes, white collar crimes), we have you covered. Our superior organizational skills and work ethic will be more than enough to get you through municipal violations, traffic violations, and DUI/DWI/OUI charges as well. We’re ready to take your call, so please don’t hesitate to reach out.
