Violent Crimes

Facing Violent Crime Charges?

For more than 30 years, I have been practicing law in this state, and criminal defense is a large part of my practice. I never presume anything about a violent crime defense case until I have heard all that my clients have to tell me and have investigated all alleged evidence in detail. I am very experienced at getting a good picture of what actually happened and what the law has to say about it.

More Than 30 Years Of Experience

At Jamison Associates, I welcome the opportunity to evaluate your case if you have been charged with a violent crime in or around Gladstone — anywhere on the Missouri side of the Greater Kansas City area or beyond. I am attorney Kevin Jamison. I have decades of experience defending clients facing these charges.

Many seek my counsel and representation after being charged with assault or domestic violence. My criminal defense practice encompasses cases involving bar fights, divorce-related domestic disturbances and other allegedly violent situations. I am well-known throughout Missouri as a source of knowledge on weapons and self-defense issues.

Building An Effective Defense

When I dig in and investigate your assault case, I may discover that:

  • Witness testimony is contradictory and questionable
  • You acted in self-defense within the parameters of the law
  • Police actions at the time of the arrest may have been in error
  • You were wrongly identified as the perpetrator of a violent act

In addition to my knowledge of the law, I often draw on research I have done over the years into psychological causes for common human responses to high-stress situations. I understand the physical and mental changes that a person typically goes through when threatened, frightened or pressured. Any such information that pertains to your case may be useful in your defense.

Accused Of Domestic Violence?

Domestic violence cases often involve extra elements beyond an apparent incident that should be explored. An alleged victim may be trying to get an advantage in a divorce case or exact revenge after a relationship has gone sour. I represented a client who successfully interrupted a suicide attempt and was subsequently accused of a crime. In such a case, a review of the mental health history of the accuser may be critical for a successful defense.

Please note that as a family law attorney, I can address either side of the equation of a domestic violence case. If you need a restraining order to feel secure, I can help you obtain one. On the other hand, if you have been named in a restraining order and seek to reclaim your home, your children and a clean record, contact me to learn how I can help.
