"There is No Substitute for Experience."
Greetings! My name is Mike Lutke and I am a criminal defense and personal injury attorney. I was raised in a working-class family in St. Louis and graduated from the University of Missouri-Columbia School of Law in 2002. I worked my way through law school as a school bus driver and as a legal assistant in the Boone County Prosecutors Office and with a private firm. I have lived and practiced law in Southwest Missouri since 2003.
After passing the Bar in September of 2002, I first practiced in St. Louis and then moved to Southwest Missouri. I have practiced all over the State of Missouri and have also represented clients in Illinois and in Alabama.
I am a former Public Defender and have been in private practice for nearly a decade. I have represented over 5000 clients and have extensive trial practice experience with over 30 jury trials and over 100 bench trials.
My practice is centered on helping accident and injury victims as well as those clients who are dealing with the judicial system for the first time. All initial consultations are free.
