About me

I put forth effort and special attention into every case, leading to effective, highly personalized representation. When you hire me, you get me.  My client's case never gets delegated to a junior associate who graduated law school last year.  If you choose to hire me as your attorney, you will always personally deal with me, an experienced, caring lawyer.


My office is in downtown Clayton, the county seat of St. Louis County. As my client you will get aggressive representation without being suffocated by fees and expenses. Many lawyers bill their clients for every fax and copy made.  My fees are reasonable and negotiated in advance.  You will know what expenses to expect and what your fees will be prior to the commencement of representation.


I am always willing to meet and discuss your case free of charge.  If you decide to hire me for your case - great!  If you decide not to hire us you owe us nothing for the meeting.  Thank you for visiting my Avvo page and considering me for your representation.

  • Christopher Patrick Dulle

    Ken is a great lawyer who cares about his clients and their cases. When I needed another attorney to 2nd chair me in a trial, Ken volunteered. I would not hesitate to recommend Ken for any serious criminal matter. Ken has extensive experience in criminal defense on many different types of cases. Specifically, he is very knowledgeable in DUI/DWI law and has presented at the premiere DUI/DWI seminar for Missouri attorneys. Anyone charged with an alcohol or drug related traffic violation would do well with Ken as their lawyer.
