I'm your experienced choice for a Joplin criminal defense lawyer.


As a police officer for 16 years and then an assistant prosecuting attorney for Jasper County for five years, I have seen far too many people make critical mistakes when they are arrested and charged. Most people are simply unaware of their rights and do not realize how important it is to have a lawyer's counsel throughout the process.

I am Joplin criminal defense attorney Michael L. Roberts. With my experience as a police officer and prosecutor, I know both sides of the criminal justice system. Most importantly, I know how to uncover weaknesses in the prosecution's case. I provide strategic representation based on the unique facts of each case. Whether your case is best resolved through negotiation or litigation, you can rely on my experience and knowledge.

When we discuss your case, I will thoroughly explain all of your options as well as the pros and cons of each.

If going to trial is your best chance, I will litigate vigorously. No matter what charge you face, I will work hard to protect your rights and your freedom.
