Licensed in Missouri and New York
We are a general practice firm offering legal services in the following areas:
The United States Contitution and the Missouri Constitution set forth particular rights that apply to every citizen. These apply to both before an arrest is made and after you are arrested. If you have been arrested or are wanted for questioning by a law enforcement agency, you have the right to have legal representation.
Divorce, Paternity and Adoptions are the most common areas of domestic law. Schottel & Associates not only handles these cases, but will also assist you in modifying a previous divorce decree, if the situation warrants, and will also assist you in obtaining a temporary restraining order.
Discrimination in the workplace typically occurs in the following areas: age, sex, race and disability. If you believe you have been discriminated in the work place, you should contact an attorney immediately as a timely charge must be filed with the appropriate agency. After consultation, we will help you file a charge and pursue litigation thereafter.
Whether you are injured in an automobile accident or injured on another's property because they failed to keep the property safe, you are entitled to hire an attorney to protect your rights. Insurance companies will often try to contact you, take your recorded statement and quickly dispose of your claim. Know your rights before speaking or agreeing to settle any claim.
If you have received a traffic violation or Driving While Intoxicated (DWI), you are in danger of having points assessed to your driver record. An accumulation of points or a DWI, in particular, can lead to suspension or even revocation of your driver license. Before you pay a ticket or plead guilty to a DWI, contact an attorney to have procedure and your rights explained.
