DRIVING or boating WHILE INTOXICATED
Driving under the influence or driving while intoxicated is a serious crime in Missouri. A guilty plea here can mean fines, jail time, the loss of your license, and even more. The police and prosecutor's office would have you believe that the tests conducted at your traffic stop and at the police station are 100% scientifically valid. This is not always the case. At The Garrett Law Firm, we know the science behind the tests and can help ensure that you are not intimidated into pleading guilty.
Small business formation
Being your own boss is terrific. But the liability that goes along with forming a business is staggering. Tax statuses, ownership rights in a marriage, partnerships or sole proprietorships, LLCs, S-Corps, etc. are all decisions and issues that you are going to have to evaluate in making your dreams come true. Let us help. We have the experience in drafting the documents that the State of Missouri needs to ensure that your business is legal and that you are protected.

A well-developed estate plan provides peace of mind in some of life’s most difficult moments. A power of attorney can make sure the right person makes decisions when their loved one is unable to do so. Effective use of a beneficiary deed and other non-probate transfers can get needed resources to loved ones without the delay of probate. Wills can prevent conflict in a grieving family and make sure that you are able to choose your child’s guardian if you pass away. Trusts can be used to protect assets and provide for ongoing income for yourself or your loved ones.
There are many tools in the estate-planning toolbox, and it is vital that you choose an experienced lawyer to guide you to the right choice for your situation. If you’re ready for the peace of mind a custom-crafted estate plan can bring, call our firm today to set up a consultation.
