Hi, I’m Keith Liberman. I have practiced law for a few decades. Below are the areas of law I am concentrating on. If you have any questions, I would be happy to discuss them with you. Give me a call, or send an email. I look forward to working for you!
Injured at work?
Worker’s Compensation injuries cover accidents whether at your employer’s shop, driving for a living, or on a construction site. Our law provides benefits for medical treatment, temporary total disability, permanent total disability and permanent partial disability. I handle claims all over the State of Missouri. You will not need to travel to my office in St. Louis, I travel to the location your claim is assigned. See my Practice Area Page
Hurt in a collision or slip and fall, I can help.
I help clients injured in crashes, after falling, bitten by a dog and shot. Contact me and I will help you. We will go over every detail of your case together. I will prepare your case and take it as far as necessary for you to receive all benefits under the law. For work injuries, see my Worker’s Compensation Page. Also, check my Motor Vehicle Accident page.
You have been arrested, now what?
Criminal law is where I started 34 years ago. I have handled cases in Missouri state courts as well as United States federal courts. These cases include all types drug-related offenses. Whether you are charged with the most serious felonies,
Crime against a person, such as burglary, robbery, murder, assault, rape, incest, resisting arrest;
or lesser severe felonies such as:
Crime against property, like stealing, forgery, and bad checks,
I can help you. Judges and prosecutors all have a unique approach to crime which will influence your case strategy. Because I have appeared in many courts, with many different prosecutors, I may be able to get you a better result than a less-experienced lawyer. Let me get the best result for you.
Do you need help on a family law case?
Divorce and custody are the most emotionally charged cases in the practice of law. I have handled difficult and complex family law situations, and as a result, I can explain the process to you and answer your questions. I help clients in divorce, paternity, custody, adoptions, and name changes.
If you read horror stories on the internet or your friend scared you with tales of his or her own case, first, call me. I’ll talk you off the ledge. Second, ask me if its time to panic. Hint: the answer is “no”. Third, let me tell you what happens next and the usual time frame for the whole process. Fourth, tell me what you would like to see at the finish line, and I will tell you how to get there.

Are you defending a complaint against your professional license?
I defend professionals against complaints, including these professions: accountant, attorney, physician, nurse, psychologist, licensed clinical social worker, pharmacist or other professional.
For example, a nurse cannot practice nursing without a professional license. A professional is smart and well-educated, yet, lacks the legal experience. You need a lawyer (even if you are one). First of all, do not risk your livelihood. (There is no “Second of all”). The Board has multiple attorneys and investigators who know the procedure, rules of evidence and the Board members, consequently, you must even the playing field.
Here is one reason why: You present a document to the Board. It may be excluded from evidence if improperly handled. You must know and follow the Rules of Evidence. This means laying a proper foundation, including, the document not contain hearsay, or may be a copy when an original is needed.
On the other hand, you must prevent the Board lawyer from presenting inadmissible evidence. You must know:
- The proper time for objection. If you object after the hearsay is admitted, it’s too late.
- The legal objection, such as, is the evidence hearsay, is it irrelevant, immaterial, etc.
Here are the disciplinary options available to the Board: The lightest is probation for a number of years with special conditions, such as requiring the employer to file quarterly reports to the Board on the employee; Next is suspension of the license for a number of months or years, and finally, revocation of the license for up to 3 years.
For these reasons, you must hire a defense lawyer familiar with the Board, otherwise, you are playing poker without knowing the rules.
