As a former prosecutor, I offer more than a quarter century of experience in Missouri and Illinois criminal law, and am able to provide insight into the prosecution’s strategy and develop an aggressive defense plan for you.

I will listen to you, your entire side of the story, and thoroughly gather all available information so that I am able to begin to develop your criminal defense strategy as quickly as possible.

I will be able to help you in a wide range of cases, including:

  • DUI/DWI — I have utilized numerous resources to increase my skill set and knowledge in defending DWI cases. This helps me understand defenses and weaknesses available in your case.
  • Traffic violations — There is a wide range of traffic violations from common infractions to more serious felonies. Attorney Carl Civella has considerable experience in defending clients and protecting clients’ rights.
