About Our Firm

Image of Joel Rook

I opened the law office in 2008 and have focused almost exclusively on criminal defense. I have settled thousands of cases favorably for my clients, including dismissals, diversions, probations, and acquittals at trials. I have tried approximately 40 cases to juries.  It is a small law firm with just two employees but we do hire experts, investigators, and other specialists as needed.  I cover The Kansas City metro area and have practiced in front of judges in several local counties.  The firm’s core values place an emphasis on customer service.  That includes zealous advocacy, keeping clients informed, listening closely to their concerns, and creating unique solutions for unique situations.
