Violent Crimes

With your freedom, and possibly your life at stake, you need a criminal defense team that will fight for you in court.

Strategic Defense Against Serious Charges

Murder and other violent crime offenses are serious matters with severe repercussions. If you are convicted of this offense, you could spend the rest of your life in prison or be sentenced to death. When your freedom and, potentially, your life are on the line, you need an attorney who not only knows the system but also has experience with these complex cases.

At Wampler & Passanise, we know that prosecutors do everything in their power to convict individuals charged with committing these crimes and pursue harsh penalties during sentencing. We make it our mission to anticipate prosecutors’ argument and secure favorable results for our clients. Our criminal defense attorneys have handled many high-profile violent crimes cases over the course of their careers. They use their vast understanding of the law to design an approach that effectively combats the charges and protects your freedom. From our firm’s location in Springfield, we represent individuals throughout Missouri.

The Knowledge You Need When Facing A Violent Crime Charge

When you work with our experienced attorneys, you gain access to trial-tested lawyers who have successfully defended hundreds of clients. After you consult with us and hire our firm, we begin collecting information about your case and exploring the options available to you. We take a deliberate approach when representing clients, carefully weighing the benefits and drawbacks of any approach before we make our recommendations.

Our hard-hitting lawyers have defended against a range of violent crimes charges, including:

Dee Wampler’s time as a prosecuting attorney in Greene County gives him extensive knowledge of how the prosecution will build their case, and Joseph Passanise and Taylon Sumners have achieved national recognition throughout their careers. We are ready to bring that knowledge to your defense.
