Protect Your Rights.


Protecting What Matters Most

Areas of Practice


Choosing adoption is the greatest gift you can give to a child. Under Missouri and Kansas law, an adopted child is granted all the rights and privileges as if born to you. 

Whether it is a step-child adoption, private adoption, or through an agency, the attorneys at Kaiser / Lawless, LLP can help make your family complete.  Contact our office today to discuss your options.


Juvenile Delinquency & Criminal Cases

Finding yourself in trouble as a teen can have serious consequences on your future.  An ignored, unpaid speeding ticket can spiral into a revoked drivers license and criminal charges.  More serious allegations can remain on a child's record well into adulthood.

With the guidance of a skilled attorney, youthful mistakes don't need to haunt you as an adult. The attorneys at Kaiser / Lawless, LLP understand the criminal and juvenile court systems and have dedicated their practice towards the protection and success of teens across Missouri and Kansas.

Minor & Adult Guardianships

As a child's guardian, you are given the power to make important decisions when a parent is unable to.
As a guardian for an adult, you are entrusted to serve the best interests of a person who has become incapacitated or disabled.  

If you believe a loved one is in need of care or protection, the attorneys at Kaiser / Lawless, LLP can help secure the appointment of a guardian or conservator.


When a child is taken under the Court's jurisdiction, families often fall under the scrutiny of the Judge, the Juvenile Office, Children's Division, and the Division of Youth Services.  With so many government interests in play, it is important to have an attorney experienced in family law that understands the system.

Whether you are a parent fighting for custody or your child requires legal protection, the Kaiser / Lawless, LLP is continuously fighting for the rights of children and parents across Missouri and Kansas.


If you have been arrested or are under investigation by law enforcement, you have the  right to remain silent. The police are permitted to use deception and false information to make their case against you. Any admissions, mistakes or omissions will be used against you in a court of law.

Protect yourself from wrongful prosecution. Contact Kaiser / Lawless, LLP to discuss your options and protect your rights.

Appeals of Trial Court Decisions

At times, the trial court makes decisions that harm your legal rights or impairs your freedoms. In those cases, you have the right to appeal.  The attorneys at Kaiser / Lawless, LLP have successfully appealed trial court decisions in criminal and family cases.  If you believe a court's decisions have caused you harm, contact us today to discuss your options.
