Practice areas
  1. Criminal defense
    45%
    If you are suspected of a crime or charged with a violation of law, you may require the services of a criminal defense attorney to present your defense or negotiate a penalty. An experienced criminal defense attorney knows what information the government will need to prove your guilt. The defense attorney will also know what information you need to prove your innocence, including whether there are any legal rules justifying your actions.

  2. DUI and DWI
    35%
    If you are suspected of driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs, you may be arrested for DUI (driving under the influence) or DWI (driving while intoxicated). A DUI conviction has serious consequences (for example, losing your driving privileges or jail); but an experienced DUI attorney can often get the charges dropped or reduced, or may be able to negotiate lesser penalties depending on your circumstances and your past history.

  3. Speeding and traffic ticket
    20%
    If the police give you a ticket for violating traffic laws (quite often for speeding), you may require the services of a traffic ticket lawyer to help you through traffic court. Traffic ticket lawyers know which people to talk to at court and the kind of deals they are willing to make. The traffic ticket lawyer will also know the specific types of proof the officer must submit to the court and when there is not enough information to support the traffic

Best lawyer!
Chris is, by far, the best and most reliable legal representation I have had. He makes you feel comfortable and instantly reassured that you made the right choice by choosing him. He’s somebody you want to invite to the bbq, he seems like family!

Highly Recommend
Chris helped me get my limited driving privilege after completing DWI Court. I highly recommend tyis attorney for anyone who is has received a DWI, especially if it is not your first. Not all attorneys know all of the options available to repeat offenders. Chris will explain all of the potential consequences and help you make the best decision for your case.

best in stl county
Literally a legal dynamo for your needs y'all. Just hired again for a bogus ticket from one of the shady municipalities in NoCo :/ Have used Chris for our entire family and recommended him countless times. Thorough, affordable, personable, communicative (which is an absolute MUST for me, if I'm paying, I need to know what's going on) and has great office staff. Not to mention he's highly respected within the community, which definitely matters in 2021. My advice: hire him and thank me later~

Giving credit where credit is due.
First and foremost we should not break the law and drinking and driving is a bad idea. However everybody's story is different and mines will most likely be different than yours and I'll make a long story short I was looking at a Forth DWI and a felony with it. I chose Chris because of his high rating. I told him the truth about my situation and he took on my case. I was and still am absolutely impressed with his level of experience and his level of empathy. Chris Dulle and team got me back my license which is intertwined with a CDL I've been given one more chance to be successful at what I do for a living words can't even express how thankful I am to them.

Chris has been a life saver !
My teenage son received a ticket for going the wrong way down the street. It is considered a moving violation in Missouri. He is a new driver and the officer should have given him a warning. Chris was able to get this ticket changed to a parking violation, which kept potential detrimental points off his license and make his insurance rates sky rocket. Chris really cares about his clients and makes things happen. I will always recommend him.

Excellent Attorney
I hired Chris to help me petition the court for reinstatement of my driving privileges after serving a five year denial for multiple DUI offenses. Chris was the first lawyer I spoke with and after interviewing several attorneys regarding my case I ultimately decided to hire Chris. The main reason I hired Chris is because of his candid demeanor. I met with other lawyers who didn't seem to care whether I won my case or not. When I was sitting across the table from him I felt as though he was being himself and that he was going to do everything possible to make sure we were fully prepared to win my case. After I hired Chris he walked me through the entire process of petitioning the court, asked me question about myself as it related to my case, and prepared my petition for submission with the court. I met again with Chris about a week before my court date in order to prepare for the court date by running through a mock hearing. Anytime I had a question for Chris regarding the status of my case he was quick to respond. I felt fully prepared and informed throughout the entire process while I was being represented by Chris. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Chris' services to anyone facing a five or ten year denial, DUI, or any other criminal offense.

Chris Dulle
I have a class b felony dwi . The prosecutor at that time offered 7 years. No probation. I would have to do 80 percent. After 4 years of negotiations and good timing. I went to court today and walked out with a reduced to a c and 7 year suspended execution of sentence and 3 year probation . I highly recommend mr. Dulle he cares about his clients and he will work extra hard until he gets the right plea for his clients.
