Criminal Defense

We represent clients accused of a wide range of felonies and misdemeanors in Missouri state courts. Attorney Gerald Wayne Furnell draws on extensive criminal law experience, which he gained as an assistant prosecuting attorney for the city of Kansas City, Missouri, and as a criminal defense lawyer.

Family Law

We represent families throughout Missouri in domestic relations matters, including the ones listed below. These matters can be emotional, but we help our clients put emotions aside and help them make the right decisions regarding the issues that affect them.

Personal Injury

If you have suffered an injury in an accident caused by another person or party's negligence, you may be entitled to compensation. We can help you pursue a personal injury claim to cover expenses related to your accident, including medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.

Real Estate

We handle a range of real estate matters, including construction disputes, landlord/tenant matters, and zoning and land use issues. Attorney Gerald Wayne Furnell has represented many developers throughout all phases of commercial and residential real estate development. He can guide clients through the legal system, helping development run smoothly by avoiding potential legal pitfalls.


Our law firm assists clients with Chapter 7 bankruptcy proceedings. Unlike Chapter 13, which can extend a client's ability to start fresh and debt free for as long as five years, a Chapter 7 filing eliminates debt immediately. This immediate debt relief helps individuals and families to gain a quick, fresh start on the path to financial well-being.
