Meet Our Team

Expertise - The Bukowsky Law Firm has extensive experience in criminal defense and traffic cases, including driving while intoxicated, assault, stealing, forgery, and possession.*  Our expertise and experience allows us to deliver exceptional results for our clients.

Criminal charges and even traffic violations can have serious, long-term implications on your future. Facing this alone can be scary and stressful. Having an experienced traffic attorney or criminal lawyer ensures you’re aware of all of your options. The Bukowsky Law Firm is dedicated to helping you get through this difficult time and providing a path to move forward with your life.

When you have a serious health problem, you go to a doctor specialized in treating you for your particular health problem.

If you are charged with a crime or traffic violation, you shouldn’t go to just any attorney. Go to one specialized in criminal and traffic law.

Location - Located in Columbia, Missouri, The Bukowsky Law Firm represents clients throughout Mid-Missouri in State, Federal, and Municipal court. Our firm handles cases in:  Boone, Audrain, Callaway, Cole, Cooper, Howard, Randolph, Monroe, Montgomery, Moniteau, Osage, Saline, Pettis and Charitan Counties.  We also handle cases in the cities within these counties, including Columbia and Jefferson City.

Individualized Strategy - In each case, we carefully develop a strategy to deliver our clients the best possible results. The same approach is not appropriate in every case. In some cases, the best strategy is an aggressive and immediate action. Other cases may require thorough investigation and review before determining whether aggressive action is appropriate. And other cases require skilled, tactical, and persuasive negotiation. We work with the client to help determine the best strategy to protect our client’s rights, record and freedom.
