Fighting For Your Freedom And Future
At Nolan, Mulford & DeLeeuw, we believe in promoting and protecting our clients’ rights and interests. This is our passion in all areas of the law, and it is especially critical in criminal defense.
I am Patrick Nolan, the lead criminal defense lawyer and one of the founders of this firm. My practice encompasses many areas of criminal law, including driving while intoxicated (DWI), drug charges, sex offenses and a wide range of other felonies and misdemeanors. My mission in criminal law is to compel the state of Missouri to honor the promise of the U.S. Constitution.
My Mission And Passion: Your Defense
I help prosecutors, judges and juries see my clients’ humanity and dignity as I work hard to protect their rights. Have you been charged with a criminal offense? You are worth fighting for, and that’s what I am here to do.
I wake up every morning with my most important goal in mind: Make a difference. I am known for telling it like it is and for being willing to fight for my clients.
My strong litigation skills can be assets in your criminal case. If I take your case, I will be ready to stand alongside you when you have been charged with a crime. Together, we will face those who accuse, challenge and seek to prosecute you.
I Am Ready To Take On Your Case
Were you charged with drunken driving? Whether your drunken driving arrest was triggered by your first alleged intoxication-related driving offense or an alleged repeat offense, you must act right away. If you hope to keep your driving privileges, you have a short period of time in which to request a hearing with the Department of Revenue (DOR). As your defense attorney, I can help you prepare carefully for that hearing.
Are you under investigation or have you already been accused of a drug offense? If I am your defense attorney, I will start by determining whether the police used illegal search and seizure methods before targeting you for an arrest.
Are you a doctor, nurse or lawyer charged with a white collar crime, a sex crime or domestic violence? I know how important it is for you to keep your professional license. Are you a student or faculty member at Truman State University with your academic standing or employment on the line? I will fight to have your case dismissed or your charges and penalties reduced in a court of law. As necessary, I will also represent you before your professional licensing board or educational institution.
Wondering How To Choose The Right Defense Lawyer?
I respect the fact that you can choose from among various defense attorneys. I recommend the following factors as guidelines to help you in your search.
- First, keep in mind that the best criminal defense attorneys have been public defenders. The Missouri State Public Defender System (a government division) provides outstanding training.
- Second, find out if the attorney who may defend you is willing to meet with you personally, take the time to discuss your case and return your phone calls promptly.
- Third, look for an attorney with a solid reputation and the respect of legal peers.
As a former public defender and a hard-working private defense attorney, I have spent my entire legal career successfully defending the accused. I am confident that you will find the help that you need when you entrust your defense to Nolan, Mulford & DeLeeuw.
