Business Law

Thinking of starting a business?  Call us.  We have helped many of our clients pursue their dreams by helping them choose the right business entity and creating the documents necessary for their formation.  Whether it is an LLC, Corporation, Partnership or something less traditional we will help you understand the differences and help you choose what best suits your needs.  We can also create contracts, waivers and just about any other agreements you may need to help protect you in your business endeavors.

Criminal

 The criminal process can be daunting.  If you are unsure of your rights and the process before the courts of Missouri the result could have substantial financial consequences and possible loss of your liberty.  You may also suffer administrative consequences such as losing your ability to operate a motor vehicle or engage in a professional occupation regulated by the State of Missouri.  Attorney Todd Irelan has over 10 years experience of helping people negotiate their way through the criminal process before the numerous courts of the State of Missouri.  If you find yourself at the receiving end of a criminal prosecution for DWI, Driving While Suspended or Revoked, Possession or even a traffic ticket give us a call and have us go to work for you to resolve the issue.

Expungements

 If you have already been convicted in Missouri there is new hope to get the matter removed from your record.  On January 1, 2018 Section 610.140 of the revised statutes of Missouri came into effect.   This statute allows many non-violent offenses to be expunged from a person’s record; even some felonies are eligible under the new law.  So if that conviction from yesteryear is still complicating your life, preventing you from getting that dream job or condo lease, let us help you remove that obstacle so you can get back to what’s important to you.

Personal Injury/ Workers Compensation

Have you been injured as a result of someone else’s negligence, carelessness or reckless behavior?  In Missouri, you are entitled to compensation for the carelessness of others.  We fight for people in such difficult situations to pursue the wrongful party and their insurer until you receive the compensation you deserve.  We also help those injured on the job.  With over 10 years experience in the area of workers compensation Todd has worked claims from both the injured parties’ side and the defense of those claims for insurance companies and will fight for you to receive the maximum relief available under the law.

Probate/ Estate Planning

Having to deal with the loss of a loved one is a difficult time in one’s life.  Add to the emotional trauma the weight of having to deal with that person's estate and the result can be overwhelming.  In Missouri, estates of decedents are overseen by the probate court.  Whether it is a small estate that can be resolved without great expenditure of time and money or a full-blown estate or whether you have been named or appointed as a personal representative the process can be confusing and potentially costly.  Failure to act in a timely manner may result in the inability to proceed in the probate court to resolve one's estate.  Call us, with more than 10 years experience in representing people before the various probate courts of the State of Missouri we can help you successfully through the process.

 

We can also help you with the effective planning of your estate so as to help spare your loved ones the additional burden associated with the probate process or at least streamline as much as possible.  Whether you need a will, a trust, a durable power of attorney or healthcare treatment directive (also known as a living will), call us.  We are happy to sit down and discuss the options and the real world application of your choices to help you plan your estate and protect your loved ones.
