My partner and I almost exclusively represent clients that have come into contact with the criminal justice system, either through investigation, pending charges, or convictions.  We handle all aspects of the criminal process from pre-indictment to postconviction.  My area of concentration is postconviction cases in both state and federal court.  I have represented clients challenging their sentence, conviction or continued confinement in the United States District Courts for the Eastern District of Missouri, Sourthern District of Illinois, Northern District of Georgia, and Northern Distirct of Indiana.  I have also represented clients in Missouri challenging their convictions and sentences including clients sentenced to life without possibility of parole and to death.  In addition to my postconviction work, I have represented clients charged with crime in both federal and state court at the trial level and on direct appeal.

Client
Mr. Schriener is one of the best attorneys that you can hire. He will not fill you with false hope or make empty promises. Once he is hired he goes to work and fights to the end. He is a professional that knows his business and leaves no stone unturned. No matter what the outcome. Once he steps in you are not alone you will have someone on your side who will go the extra mile.

This guy is a gem!
I consulted with Mr. Schreiner about an expungement, and not only did he offer a price that was competitive, he went above and beyond in making sure he had all the proper info. He really stays on top of current law and I get the feeling he's truly doing this job because he loves helping people. He was so compassionate and kind in a world that so often is not! Highly recommend!

Professional, and very courteous
Kevin provided me with legal advice, and explained his rationale to me every step of the way. More importantly to me, though, he showed compassion and understanding about the difficulties of navigating a legal system that doesn't always favour objectivity. I'm completely satisfied with the services that he provided, and am astounded by his extremely strong sense of ethical responsibility in the field.

Good Attorneys Are Hard to Find
Mr. Schreiner is an excellent attorney who handled my case with exceptional care. Each time I called or emailed him he responded if not the same day then the next. I never felt like just another case file he handled my case like a friend of the family. I really appreciate his sound advice and him going above and beyond to assist me in my legal matters.

I highly recommend Attorney Kevin Schriener
Mr. Schriener keeps abreast of both federal and Missouri state law, particularly with regard to habeas and criminal law issues. I always turn to him for advice on these matters and he tells me of the latest decisions by both state and federal courts that affect my practice of law. I know from what he tells me about his c cases that he often finds issues that other attorneys and even the judges or prosecutors have missed and then goes on to win relief for his clients. There is no better attorney around to handle habeas cases in particular. Since habeas cases depend so much on both state and federal criminal law, he has to keep abreast of the ever-changing laws and court decisions in this regard.

Excellent Lawyer
Attorney Kevin Schriener was like a god sent, When all hope was lost, he was able to help my son, not only as an attorney, but also supportive , in all aspects, he is a good man.

Knowledgeable, Effective, Responsive, Meticulous!
Kevin knows exactly what to do to get the best results and then proceeds to do it. He got a prior case against my son dismissed after my son's unwarranted guilty plea 7 years before, which cleared my son's record. Kevin knew the law and my son's legal defenses exactly, and step-by-step proceeded to retrieve old records, file the motions in court, and contact the prosecutor who agreed not to prosecute. Kevin really cares about his clients, and he responds to his clients' questions immediately. It was a pleasure to work with such a professional attorney, and we appreciate Kevin's effective work, as well as his sensitivity towards his clients.

Great Expert! Simply Outstanding Service
Kevin is simply the best and a very outstanding attorney who keeps you informed, is very responsive and extremely proactive. Recently, he assisted me in vacating a 10 year old guilty plea and furthermore getting the case completely dismissed. His knowledge of the Missouri criminal law is outstanding.

Need a criminal defense attorney? Mr shriener is the attorney you need
Mr Schriener is the criminal defense attorney you most definitely want to represent you. He pays close attention to his clients and always returns feedback when questions are asked on time. I hired him to vacate convictions on my record that greatly affected my immigration status. He was a able to get me a positive result which will really help my immigration filing process. I would recommend Mr Shriener to anyone seeking some sort of criminal issues...Thanks again for all your help. Keep up the good work
