Felonies

Not all criminal defense attorneys are adept at handling felony-level criminal charges. These cases are more complex and require hands-on experience, knowledge of felony criminal laws and insight into felony court systems. The strategies are complicated. The stakes are high. Success requires in-depth planning and sound trial skills.

Felony crimes fall into various classifications sorted by both severity and whether or not the crime affects a person. At Billam & Henderson, LLC, we prepare and present felony criminal cases with attention to every detail. We implement strategies at trial for our clients with a focus on the best outcome.

Experienced. Dedicated. Knowledgeable.

Licensed in Kansas and Missouri, our attorneys bring comprehensive experience and unwavering dedication in pursuing the best outcome if you are facing charges of:

  • Murder, voluntary manslaughter or involuntary manslaughter
  • Sex cases
  • Kidnapping, robbery or burglary
  • Possession of a controlled substance
  • Sale or possession with the intent to distribute a controlled substance
  • Felony DUI/OUI/DWI
  • Theft, embezzlement or fraud
  • Identity theft

Kansas utilizes a sentencing grid that finds the particular intersection of an individual's previous criminal history and severity of the crime committed. Many special sentencing rules alter the presumption for probation and the judge's discretion at sentencing. Having a lawyer who is well-versed in the sentencing grid means fewer surprises and more accurate legal advice. Understanding the system allows our clients to make decisions that are best for their case, their family and their future. The attorneys at Billam & Henderson, LLC, have substantial experience navigating special sentencing rules and the Kansas sentencing grid.

If you are convicted of a felony, you face challenges, starting with a felony on your record that will show up on a background check beyond a prison sentence. You will also lose the right to vote, carry firearms and secure professional licensure.
