Criminal Defense Attorneys in St. Louis, MO
Mr. Muhlenkamp and Ms. Bernsen first began working together at a large criminal defense firm in St. Louis in 2008. They represented clients for several years on numerous matters, ranging from minor misdemeanors to serious felonies. During that time, they developed a trusted relationship, which enabled them to work well together and advocate effectively for their clients. During her time at the firm, Ms. Bernsen specialized in appellate advocacy until she left the firm and began working for the State of Missouri prosecuting administrative DWIs and representing the State on various driver license matters. Mr. Muhlenkamp remained at the firm and continued representing clients in state and federal trial courts.
In 2015, they decided to open their own firm, specializing in criminal defense and appellate practice. Based on their prior experiences in the field, Muhlenkamp & Bernsen’s founding principle is to encourage and foster a direct line of communication between the attorney and the client. The firm values success by the quality of representation, the positive results realized, and the attention to detail it provides to all clients as opposed to the number of files opened. Our attorneys possess “big firm” knowledge and experience while providing it in an individualized and compassionate “small firm” setting.
