Dedicated Bankruptcy and Family Law Attorney in Joplin, MO

Concerned advocate helps clients secure a brighter future

Legal issues that affect your future and your family require meticulous care and dedicated management. Since 1984, Charles H. Lonardo, Attorney at Law has helped clients in Jasper, Newton and McDonald counties overcome financial hardships and family crises with reliable advice and aggressive representation. I actively listen to your concerns to truly understand your circumstances and provide detailed guidance to advance your goals and objectives.

Joplin attorney focused on providing excellent legal service

Most clients who come to me have never been to see an attorney before, so they are naturally apprehensive. When you have an urgent legal issue, I’ll give you my undivided attention and work diligently to deliver the best possible result. You can trust that I am:

  • Dedicated — For more than 30 years, I have helped clients with a variety of legal concerns overcome their legal challenges and find solutions that meet their needs.
  • Reputable — I am respected by colleagues, former clients, and community members who know me as a civic leader and volunteer.
  • Resourceful — My versatile practice includes general civil law, family law, family law mediation, juvenile law, and debtor and creditor law. I also handle criminal defense, including traffic violations and DUI. This diverse experience provides me with multiple perspectives and a variety of dispute-resolution techniques that form the basis for creative solutions.

Experience has made me adept at achieving resolutions to complex and contentious problems. However, when justice requires going to trial, you can rely on me to protect your rights and fight for your interests.

Skilled bankruptcy counsel for consumers and creditors

In today’s economy, it seems no one is more than two steps removed from bankruptcy. For you, it might be a serious illness; for someone else, an extended period of unemployment. If you’re struggling with crushing debt, relief may be available through Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy. But rather than simply processing paperwork, I take the time to examine your circumstances to help you determine if bankruptcy is the right move, and then I provide detailed guidance to ensure you get the maximum protection the law allows. If, on the other hand, you are a creditor worried about your rights in bankruptcy, I can provide able assistance to help maximize your return.

Concerned Joplin family lawyer manages a variety of issues

Anyone considering divorce faces uncertainty over the future. As an experienced divorce lawyer in Jasper, Newton and McDonald counties, I understand the emotional and financial impact of marital breakups. I will work to resolve your divorce, child custody, support, and property division issues in the most efficient and cost-effective manner possible. I also handle non-divorce issues, such as adoption and juvenile law, as well as post-divorce modifications of custody agreements.
