What is Important?
At the Clarke & Hill Law Office we value the clients objectives and work aggressively to achieve those objectives. We always remember that the bottom line in this area of law is the family itself. Children and the parental bond are our top priorities.
Clarke & Hill Employs a Collaborative Scheme
On some cases it is impossible to avoid trial because of the underlying issues. This is not always the case and many family law matters can be settled between the parties. Having a good attorney insures you know what you have at stake and gives you a piece of mind that you are being represented competently.
Keeping Costs Down - Our Mission
Settling a case often comes with a give and take from both sides but financially it is usually seen as a blessing. A case that settles in the family law arena generally costs half or less than half of a similar case that goes to trial. Thus, Clarke & Hill Law Office seeks to settle every case within the clients desire in order to keep costs down.
Reuniting a Family
Often the issue is not as clear cut as a simple custody proceeding where both of the parents disagree on the appropriate days of the week for the other parent to have the child. Sometimes one parent has been completely robbed of child's presence for a long period of time and would like to finally have their child back. These cases are often the most complex but also the most rewarding when a parent is able to spend time with their child again. Clarke & Hill Law Office takes pride in rekindling the parent-child bond and seeing the smile on a happy clients face.

Missouri has created laws that base Child Custody proceedings around the best interests of the child standard. This is a standard the Clarke & Hill Law Office has adopted entirely. With a laser sharp focus on children’s welfare and protection of the parental bond we have been able produce excellent results for our clients.
Our goals are to lead clients throughout the process and argue aggressively for their goals. Our experience allows us to help ease the clients in to the court process and inform them of likely reactions by the court to proposed arguments. This helps keep client’s focused on the best interests of the children and also increases the likelihood the judge will rule in our favor.
Each case has its own rate and no case is alike. However, we employ a straight forward billing and contracting scheme that insures the customer that his rights and finances are protected. We also explain up front the tactics the client can employ to keep costs down on their end as well.

The Benefits of Having a Criminal and Family Law Attorney
It has been our experience that criminal and family law matters are intricately intertwined. Imagine if in the middle of a high stakes divorce a party to the divorce is charged with a serious criminal offense. Our firm is able to handle both cases discreetly and cost effectively. Other firms only handle family law matters and refer the criminal issues to another firm. This effectively severs the relationship between the two cases and creates potential road bumps when addressing the criminal issue during the divorce proceeding or the divorce proceeding during the criminal proceedings. Our firm will have a deep understanding of both issues and how they affect one another.
