Criminal Law


Being accused of a crime is a serious matter. In many cases, the help of an experienced defense lawyer can make a huge difference in the outcome.

If you or a loved one is facing charges, I can provide advice and personalized representation. I have helped many people in the Columbia area resolve criminal matters of all kinds, fighting for their legal rights and/or negotiating on their behalf, as necessary.

Protecting The Rights Of The Accused

At Mingus Law Office, I defend clients in a wide variety of municipal and state criminal matters, ranging from misdemeanors to serious felonies with much higher stakes. I can provide representation if you have been accused of:

  • A crime against property such as theft, shoplifting and larceny
  • Assault charges, including domestic assault
  • Drug charges involving marijuana, prescription drugs, cocaine or meth, such as possession or possession with intent to distribute
  • DWI or another serious driving violation
  • Minor in possession (MIP) charges, including those stemming from campus parties or the use of a fake ID
  • Campus offenses occurring at The University Of Missouri-Columbia, Stevens College and Columbia College
  • Juvenile offenses
  • Fraud

I evaluate and handle each case on an individual basis. You may have multiple options when it comes to defending yourself.
