Types of Cases We Handle
St Louis DWI Lawyer
Defense attorney Shin Cho has handled numerous drunk driving cases, and can help you navigate the often-confusing process of defending yourself against criminal Missouri or St Louis DWI charges and fighting to keep your driver’s license.
St Louis Criminal Lawyer: Violent Crime Charges
Prosecutors and judges take violent crimes the most seriously, and under Missouri law, certain crimes classified as “dangerous” offenses can carry harsher sentences.
But many people accused of violent offenses are truly innocent. Often the situation arose out of self-defense, accident, misidentification, false accusations or mental illness. Furthermore, it is important to hire an attorney with the skills necessary to ensure that the burden of proof remains on the State, and the presumption of innocence protects you or a loved one at all stages of the process.
Among the violent crime charges we defend against are:
St Louis Criminal Lawyer: Sex Crimes Charges
Conviction for a criminal sex offense can lead to years in prison, and the prospect of lifetime mandatory registration on the sex offender registry. But many innocent people get falsely accused of sex crimes, especially date rape, lewd acts with a child, and sexual assault.
Defense attorney Shin Cho will not only comb through the evidence disclosed by the State – he will also independently investigate the case with our own private investigators and work closely with highly-skilled forensic experts.
We defend against all sex crimes charges, including
- Statutory Sodomy
- Statutory Rape
- Forcible Rape
- Child Pornography
- Prostitution Solicitation
- Indecent Exposure
Missouri Stealing-Related Crime Charges
Most people accused of theft do not have prior criminal history involving more serious offenses, such as violent crimes. As a defense attorney, Shin Cho knows this is an important factor to consider, both for trial preparation and plea negotiation purposes. Additionally, oftentimes, it is much more difficult to prove a theft than the State lets on. For these reasons and more, it is important to retain the services of a criminal defense lawyer who can ensure that your rights are protected throughout the criminal law process.
We represent clients as to all financial and property crimes, such as
- Petty Theft (Shoplifting)
- Misdemeanor Stealing

Attorney Shin Cho is highly-skilled and experienced in looking deeper into the evidence to see if the drugs were found in violation of his Clients’ constitutional rights.
