Defended a Restraining Order
Kevin was amazing at defending the RO that my ex-wife tried to get placed on me. Kevin was thorough and the case ended up getting dismissed. I’m so thankful for all his help in clearing my good name. I would definitely recommend!!

Great experience and great outcome! Attorney Kevin took off a warrant from missing court on accident and got a felony and misdemeanor dropped. A very friendly guy who knew his stuff. Wichman Law Firm was a great choice.

Outstanding criminal lawyer
I had an outstanding experience with Attorney Wichman representing me in my domestic assault case. I was so happy when he told me it was all over with no more court dates and we won with all the charges dismissed. Great criminal defense lawyer and true professional. Many thanks!

Great Domestic Assault Lawyer
Thank you Mr. Wichman for all your assistance with my case in KC Municipal Court. I was so worried and nervous about going to trial even though I thought all the charges were bogus! Kevin took charge of my case and got together all the discovery and evidence we needed to prove my innocence. I am glad I hired him and took his advice because we ended up getting all the charges dropped. I can't recommend his services enough, he really came through for me.

Best attorney
Kevin is the best attorney I've had the pleasure of knowing. He always keeps an open line of communication, he is straight forward in his meetings with clients and lets them know what they should expect before any fee is collected, and when it comes time to appear in front of the judge there are no surprises. I cant recommend him enough.

An amazing lawyer
Kevin took over 3 traffic cases about 6 months ago. His prices were reasonable and his professionalism was above amazing. He was able to get some tickets reduced and others dismissed all together. I had no idea at the beginning how I would get past all this. But Kevin helped work everything to my favor. He was even able to get 4 tickets from 10 years ago. Completely dismissed, he is a people person. And as long as you do your part he was do his.
