Law Office of Schuyler Laverentz, LLC.

Home: Homepage_about


So you might need to speak to a lawyer? Where do you start? You probably have friends or family that have hired an attorney in the past. Sometimes they can point you in the right direction.  Searching Google can assist you (or the Yellow Pages if you can find one), but advertising is of limited usefulness because it presents only part of the picture.  The best solution is to make an appointment with an attorney and meet with him or her in person.  When you have a family law case, you will be working closely with the attorney for months, discussing intimate details of your life, all while the life you previously knew changes drastically.  Your attorney should be competent, undoubtedly.  Just as importantly, you need to like and trust the person helping you navigate through what will be one of the most difficult periods in your lifetime.


When you call our office, you'll speak to me directly if I'm not in court.  In many cases, the only personal contact you receive from an attorney is the initial consult and the day of trial.  That won't happen at this office.  I will be here (many times on Saturday) to speak to you when there is a question or problem.   

The Law Office of Schuyler Laverentz, LLC, is a West Plains, Missouri law office dedicated to quality representation in family and criminal law.  Schuyler "Sky" Laverentz (pronounced Sky-ler Lava-rints) nearly seventeen years of experience in criminal law, divorce, modification of child custody and adoption. 

Schuyler is a West Plains, Missouri, trial attorney who also represents clients charged with driving while intoxicated (DWI), drug possession, assault and most other serious felonies.  If you have been charged with a crime, do not speak to any member of law enforcement.  Instead, call our office immediately.  If a warrant has been issued for your arrest, call us before you contact a bondsman.  Frequently, our office can negotiate a recognizance or other low cost bond.

If you are considering filing for a modification of your current custody plan, call our office and schedule a consultation.  Schuyler can explain your rights in simple and straightforward terms. Divorce is emotionally difficult for all members of the family, but it doesn't have to be a mysterious process.  Choose the law office that will be at your side through every stage of the proceedings. And at every stage, we will provide you with the information you need to make the best decisions for you and your children.


The choice of a lawyer is an important decision and should not be based solely on advertisement.
