My son was extradited to St. Louis City jail and then into Medium Security Institution (MSI) for a felony drug possession charge in Missouri. At the same time, he was facing a shoplifting charge in the state of Illinois, also related to drug use. While waiting for his court date at MSI, a fellow inmate recommended John Wilbers. When I contacted Mr. Wilbers, he agreed to meet with my son in jail before we made a decision on which attorney to use. This was extremely helpful as we were in another state and could not fly out to meet attorneys on his behalf. During the jail meeting, my son was won over by John Wilber’s confidence and found that John was licensed to practice in both Missouri and Illinois. This is our family’s first personal experience hiring a private lawyer and it has been a good one. John was accessible by phone and text. If he was in court or busy, he made sure he called or texted back as soon as he could. We did not have a good option for bonding out of jail as my son had no place to stay in Missouri or Illinois. Therefore, John ensured my son’s court dates were expedited dramatically and he spent a minimum amount of time in jail. He kept everything on track. If my son had to use public defenders, he would have stayed at MSI for at least 6 months as they typically set court dates 2 months apart. There was one delay that occurred because the judge that my son was supposed to see was delayed a week due to a prolonged trial. In the meantime, we had bought plane tickets for my son and made numerous other plans based on his original court date. John pulled a miracle by successfully requesting a PR bond (even with the objection of the prosecuting attorney) for release from jail. I believe that PR bonds are very difficult to get for any type of felony. After getting the PR bond, my son was again unfortunately held in limbo because the jail clerks had to personally see a stamped quash of warrant for traffic citations before releasing him. Once again, John rescued my son by sending out his assistant to the jail in the nick of time before the out processing center closed with the quash order. All this occurred on a Friday with plane tickets set for Saturday morning! In short, John handled two felony court cases in two states, several traffic cases, quashing a warrant and going over the discovery of evidence with me and my son. He also made sure he met with my son prior to his final court date as I really wanted my son to have time with his attorney. I didn’t want just a few minutes of time right before the case as typically happens with public defenders. John was able to get the best outcome possible for the bad decisions that my son made. My son received a 3-year SIS probation from Missouri, a unsupervised probation from Illinois, transfer of probation to home state of Colorado, no points on his traffic citations (which John did not charge additionally for), and court-mandated appointment to a drug treatment facility as requested by his parents and agreed to by my son. John’s rates are very reasonable and are fixed rate, so there are no surprises. I am so grateful to God that my son was able to have Mr. Wilbers represent him and help him in so many ways. I am truly indebted to God for that recommendation that my son received while in jail. Now it is up to my son to utilize the grace that has been shown to him. I highly recommend John to anyone needing legal help in criminal offences.

My sister and I recently had the pleasure of meeting a miracle in disguise of a suit and tie by the name of John Wilbers. I am very unfamiliar when it comes to handling issues pertaining to felonies, misdemeanors and just the law in general. My sister was facing two felony charges in the state of MO, along with one misdemeanor. We were referred to John by someone with an identical case to my sisters. They were 100% right in saying he is one of the best lawyers to be represented by. Being in my early twenties and a college student, (need I say more?) adding a sizable lawyer fee was not on the top of my to-do list. Needless to say, John was more than generous in giving me an extremely reasonable and fair price. Being as busy as he is, John was still always available to answer one of my many questions, whether it be about the case, court, or something I was unfamiliar with. He is excellent in communications, and goes above and beyond to keep his word. What you see is what you get, and my sister got more than a second chance. We got an even better outcome than originally planned, and for that we are forever grateful! I recommend him to anyone with any type of case, whether it be a criminal case or not. He is absolutely the best! Thanks again for answering every question and every phone call. You're wonderful!

Dean Law - Auto Accidents/Wrongful Death, Workers Compensation, DWI
One of the biggest challenges faced by some head injured people is processing anything new. Meeting a new person who is in a position of authority often enhances the stress. Without going into the long list of the challenges before us and for reasons beyond my control, I was under great duress to find an attorney for a Social Security Hearing. The heads up in these cases are usually three or four months rather than less than three weeks as it was. In our hurried search for representation, we noticed attorneys in this area of practice tend to be people of compassion. After seeking and being turned down by four attorneys, we met Mark Dean just eight days before the hearing. Almost immediately, I felt at ease in his presence. My husband’s body language indicated he, too, was feeling positive about Mr. Dean.In our initial meeting, Mr. Dean quickly assessed the needs of the case. Gave us hope that had not been engendered prior to this and sent us on our way expecting to hear from him as to whether or not he would accept the case.Within hours, he let us know he would take the case. He stayed in close contact with us quickly answering every question. The hearing went well and I was awarded benefits. It was so refreshing, to have engaged an attorney who is genuinely kind and is profoundly professional.

My fiance and I were referred to John by a friend. John took my fiance's case, and from day one, we were treated with such a friendly level of professionalism, and we never once had to wonder or worry about what to expect for court. John actually treated us like people. He kept in frequent contact with us, and he followed through with his promise to us. My fiance was treated with a high level of respect, in spite of needing legal representation, by John and his entire staff. John told us exactly what to expect and what he could do...and he did it!! I am on the side of someone I love needing legal representation, and that, in and of itself, can be a nerve-wracking experience, to see the person you love in trouble, but even on that level, John made sure to keep me in the loop and well informed with my fiance's case, and he was the PERFECT choice for us. I hope we NEVER need to go through the court system again, but, without a doubt, if we ever do, John Wilburs is on speed dial in our phones. So, if anyone out there is in need of a great attorney, who knows how to get you through the court system, with the least amount of emotional trauma, do yourself a HUGE favor, and bypass a whole lot of nonsense, and call John!!!

Archer Law Firm
Mike Archer is an outstanding attorney. He is a rare and extraordinary human being. I was and am blessed to have come across this law firm. I have worked with other attorneys and to be honest, my hopes were a bit low. I was desperate and my case was complicated. I chose Mike because of his vast and varied background and experience. His accomplishments read like a very impressive book. It was easy for me to tell this is a man who is passionate about and impeccably knowledgeable in the law. I believed he was my kids and my best chance at a good outcome. I was absolutely correct. Mike Archer earned my trust and respect by going above and beyond the call of duty to get my family just results. Mike works with Robin who is amazing and extremely knowledgeable herself. The two of them make the best team I have seen in a long time. They are so involved. They deliver such personal service and offer a true feeling of being cared about. I have to pose this question; when was the last time an attorney or a law firm made you feel important? Well, that is exactly how The Archer Law Firm made us feel. Mike and Robin are two of the good ones. They are committed to their client's "happy endings" Five Stars!!

I have to say, John Wilburs representation of my fiance was absolutely the right choice!!! The level of professionalism was a nice surprise. John took my fiance's case, and he kept in frequent contact with us from day one, and we never had to wonder or worry about what was going to happen throughout his representation. No one ever wants to be in a position to need an attorney, or in my case, loving someone who needs one, but John took his case, and from day one, we were kept in the loop and well informed on exactly what to expect in court. Never once were we made to feel like a nuisance, if we had questions. John and his entire staff treated us like individuals, and not necessarily like a criminal, which went a long way, as far as I was concerned!!! If anyone out there is in need of a GOOD, SOLID attorney, who will treat you with a level of respect and dignity that will comfort you, do yourself a favor, and skip going through the hundreds of attorneys out there, and call John FIRST. It will most definitely be a call you will be glad you made!!!THANK YOU, JOHN!!!Sharon Z.

Margot H. Beasley
Going through a divorce is very difficult especially after many years of marriage and I truly could not have done it without Margot. I was very broken after I discovered my husband had betrayed me by cheating and I prayed for a good attorney to represent me and he (God, in my opinion), sent me to an exceptional one, (Margot Beasley). I found her to be more than qualified to duel in the court of law with passion and confidence and yet down to earth and a real person. Margot listened to me and then went about successfully getting me the respect and justice I deserved and so desperately needed . If you are in need of a really decent and hard working attorney to represent you Margot Beasley is who you should trust and employ. I hope I don't sound like a commercial but I am so grateful for the manner in which she represented me it is my delight to share it with others.

Affordable Legal Services of Thomas L. Sandifer
My son was arrested for possession of marijuana and intent to sell. One of his friends gave me name of a lawyer and when I called him, he was out of town on vacation. I needed lawyer right away so he gave me name of another lawyer who works in a different law firm but in same office building. I called referred lawyer (Thomas Sandifer) on a Sunday morning and he was willing to help and took his time to talk with me and calm me down and even called me later that day. Tom Sandifer came up with the best solution for my son to keep him out of jail which will change the charge from a felony to a misdeamer. He did everything possible to help our son and guided him to make the right choice when he went before the judge. My whole family is very grateful for what Tom did for our son and will never forget.

Tips & Advices
When it comes time to choose a lawyer, you should start by searching close to home. If you do have attorneys you are familiar with, ask who they believe would be best for you. After going through personal references - especially from individuals who had similar needs - you should broaden your search through public information resources. You can call your area's attorney referral service or check legal organizations like Martindale-Hubbell. There are other resources available online, such as You can check websites for client reviews and other third-party forms of approval.
If you sign documents and you come across a word you don't recognize, or you need help to navigate important employment or real estate paperwork. Also, during times when personal matters intersect with legal proceedings, you might need to have an advocate to prevent your emotions from getting in the way. If you've been accused of a crime or are in a terrible financial situation, you can find an attorney who will work with what you have available.
When you hire a lawyer, you're agreeing to work with someone over a certain period of time. The more forthcoming the lawyer appears to be with individual needs, the better.
  • You need to ask questions about how the attorney will communicate with you and what responsibilities you hold in the relationship.
  • The attorney should let you know the best channel for quick communication and you need to inform him or her when you want updates.
  • You should also ask questions to get to know the attorney as an individual in order to ensure this is a person you can trust. Ask about their legal philosophy and how he or she views the lawyer/client relationship. Ask as how to keep fees down or what daily disruptions you should expect from a long legal battle.
You need to ask about every possible fee that will come up when working with an attorney. You should request a list of all costs in advance so you won't be surprised by additional expenses like overhead. Also determine exactly when you will start being billed. You want to inspect paperwork carefully. If the attorney charges you for his or her experience, you need to make sure he or she will perform tasks personally and not hand it off to an assistant. Find out if the attorney has a flat fee or charges by the hour. Many civil lawyers work on contingency. Make inquiries about how the lawyer plans to provide service for your money and what you can do if you start to feel unsatisfied with his or her performance.
You can ask how many similar cases they have handled and if they have special skills or training that applies specifically to your needs. Lawyers can't mention clients by name, but you should ask for basic details about identical past cases. You should check their office for the appropriate certifications and diplomas. You can also ask how long he or she has practiced law and request information that demonstrates the practice's success. Look for precise details such as percentage of cases settled out of court.
