We provide legal services
Mike was born at Vandenberg Air Force Base, California, and graduated high school in Kirksville, Missouri. He received his B.A. and B.S. in Psychology from Northeast Missouri State University in 1985, and his Juris Doctor from the University of Missouri-Columbia in 1988. Mike continues to actively participate in continuing his legal education through membership in various associations such as the Missouri Association of Criminal Defense Attorneys and the Missouri Society for Criminal Justice. He is a member of the Missouri Bar and the Boone County Bar. He has represented clients from Kansas City through St. Louis and from Kirksville though the Lake of the Ozarks.
Mike has an extensive background in criminal law working as the District Public Defender in the Fulton office from 1988 to 2005. His work with the Public Defender System gave Mike the opportunity to mentor young attorneys as well as become a seasoned trial attorney. Mike has worked on countless cases ranging from the most severe felonies of Murder in the first degree, Robbery in the first degree and Distribution or Manufacturing of Drugs to minor charges such as Passing Bad Checks and Driving While Revoked.
After leaving the Missouri State Public Defender System, Mike went into private practice with a DWI Defense Firm in which he was one of the two attorneys that received the Best Of Columbia Attorneys in 2008. Mike, still focused on working felony cases, also was able to hone his skills with DWIs and the administrative processes that are involced in driving while intoxicated charges. Mike is certified in conducting field sobriety tests.
After six years of practicing law, Mike decided to open his own firm to better serve his clients. Criminal Defense cases including but not limited to DWI, MIP, fake id's, drug possession and traffic tickets are handled confidentially and with skill. License reinstatements and limited driver's license petitions are handled. Mike continues to actively participate in continuing his legal education through membership in various associations such as the Missouri Association of Criminal Defense Attorneys and the Missouri Society for Criminal Justice. He is a member of the Missouri Bar and the Boone County Bar. He has represented clients from Kansas City through St. Louis and from Kirksville though the Lake of the Ozarks.

He has a down to earth personality, and is a real guy. He says it like it is. I super respect that about him. I owe him a lot of thanks, (and probably a few bux, which I’m gonna take car of after this review. Lol. If you need an awesome criminal defense lawyer, Mike Hamilton is the way to go!"
"I took my case to Mike and all that I can see is he is a stand up guy. He fought for me quickly and effectively. This was the first time I've needed legal representation and I didn't know where to start looking but as soon as I had my first consultation with Mike I knew I had found the right place."
