Practice areas

I'm a lifelong Missourian and proud Kansas Citian, a Mizzou Tiger and a UMKC Roo. My wife and I have kids in public school, where I volunteer. You should know that law is my second career, so I know the difference between the "real" and the "theory" of life and law. 

I have worked in science and the law, so I have an easier time understanding how real people's issues translate to law practice. I value hard work, value, and trust, and I give my clients all three things. In my role as a scientist, I looked at data and was hands-on helping other scientists navigate technical issues. I gave others the run-down on what they were trying to do with complex instruments, and what the path forward to success looked like. 

As a lawyer, I do the same thing, except for those people now facing difficult issues with criminal justice. 

When it comes to the very technical areas that I practice in, I put in the effort to let people know what they can expect, how we will work the case together, what the "chances" are, and what to do next. I worked in DWI law for the State of Missouri, and I put that knowledge to work for those charged with DWI to ensure that they have the best defense available. 

I make it my goal to give a price for the case that both they and I can live with, and I always want to have at least a short conversation with anyone facing criminal charges.

Exactly what's you'd want in a lawyer
First off I want to mention that above all else Cameron is one of the most honest and trustworthy people I have known. Since this is very important and maybe the most important when choosing a lawyer I want to stress that. I honestly feel like I can trust him with my life which is basically what I did by having him represent me multiple times. In the multiple cases I’ve had Cameron work on for me I am always impressed by his knowledge and ability compared to others I’ve had previously. He knows his stuff and anything he feels that he should double check on he does that quickly without me even asking. I don’t write very many reviews, probably on Amazon if I find an item very very amazing or the opposite so writing this is out of the norm for me but I want people to know who Cameron is and how great my experience has been with him because after finding him and using him to get incredible results and an incredible experience overall Inhavent had to shop around for any more lawyers which brings amazing piece of mind to my life knowing he's there if I ever need him. To explain further, I always feel like Cameron gives my cases the attention they require, and he goes the extra mile in getting me the best outcomes which wer above and beyond what I thought was a possible outcome. I never feel like just a number to him, and appreciate that he’s always aware of what is going on in my cases even if I forget. For example, my last case I called him to ask what the court date was because I knew it was coming up and he calmly and happily responded that he had already taken care of everything and gotten me an extension that I was requesting next court which felt like 1000 Linda off my shoulders. He is easy to reach on his cell every time I call and he is always willing to work with me around my schedule which is huge for me because my life is always hectic as I'm sure everyone feels that way. I always happily recommend him to people that I know and my friends know that I NEVER lightly recommend anyone so if I recommend someone to them then that person must be VERY good because I am very picky and never want to recommend anyone that is less than 100% amazing at whatever job they do.
