EXPERIENCED LEGAL
COUNSEL YOU CAN TRUST.

The consequences of a criminal conviction can be devastating. Put a skilled advocate on your side.

Just because you've been charged, doesn't mean you're guilty. Even if you are completely innocent, simply being charged with a crime can severely damage your reputation and tarnish your name. You deserve a strong defense that has your best interests in mind and can explain your side of the story. Whatever you have been charged with, I'm here to do whatever I can to help you and your case.

I enjoy fighting for the underdog. Everyone deserves a strong defense and I’m proud to provide that for all of my clients.

John W. Peel

I value honesty, integrity, and transparency. I’ll always be upfront with you.

Having my own firm has given me the flexibility to practice according to my own values, and being open and transparent with my clients is an important part of my work. Everyone has the right to information about the law, and my job is to explain your situation and your legal options no matter the outlook of your case. I will also answer all of your questions clearly and honestly.

You deserve representation that works in your best interests. When you retain my services, your needs will always come first, and you will always be treated with dignity and respect. If I think a different approach will be beneficial to your case, I will discuss it with you first before implementing any changes to our legal strategy.

JOHN W. PEEL, ATTORNEY AT LAW

Representing you in state & federal courts in
St. Louis and across the entire state of Missouri.

With a passion for debate and helping others, entering into the legal profession seemed an obvious choice for me. After graduating from Lindenwood University with a bachelor's degree in accounting and a master's degree in business, I attended St. Louis University School of Law. After earning my Juris Doctor, I began practicing law across the state of Missouri, refining my skills as both legal counsel and litigator. With over 20 years of experience, I offer expertise and dedication to my clients in their time of need.

IF YOU’VE BEEN CHARGED, DON’T PANIC. I WILL FIGHT AGGRESSIVELY TO GET YOU THE BEST POSSIBLE OUTCOME

WITH DECADES OF
TRIAL EXPERIENCE,
I’LL MAKE SURE YOU’RE PREPARED FOR ANY
LEGAL CHALLENGE.

As your legal representation and counsel, I have two jobs: to educate you on the laws surrounding your case and to be your strongest advocate. I do so by offering you my knowledge, which is guided by decades of experience. As an added bonus, my respected reputation with prosecutors will enhance your credibility as my client.

Case preparation has always been my strength. With me on your side, you can walk into any courtroom feeling fully prepared and confident. Trial cases are, by nature, high-stress and often intimidating. I can help ease your anxiety by explaining your position, standing up for your side of the story, and fighting to protect your rights.

Don’t face your charges alone
