Welcome to

The Piatchek Law Firm, LLC

Our attorneys are working hard to change the way that people think about lawyers – one client at a time. So we do some things a little differently than other law firms. We do our very best to return phone calls and emails promptly. We take our time to fully explain and explore all of your legal options, empowering you to make informed decisions. Our attorneys are accessible and will speak with you when you ask for them, or if they are in meetings or in Court, they try their very best to get back to you promptly. You will never be limited to speaking to paralegals, secretaries, or support staff, although you will find our staff very helpful. We are happy to give you regular updates regarding your case, so that you remain informed throughout the process.

In short, we care.  We believe in treating our clients as we would expect to be treated if we happened to be the client.  We also believe in the importance of basic customer service principles. Our attorneys and staff are not only insightful, but also straightforward and accessible. We combine the friendly service you expect from a small, locally owned business with the honest and knowledgeable advice you expect from a trusted professional adviser.

Finally, we believe our clients not only deserve high-quality legal representation that is effective and efficient, but also affordable.  Therefore, we offer reasonable, flat rates for many services, and for hourly cases, we provide detailed billing statements showing exactly how our time and your money was utilized.  We also offer contingency fee arrangements in certain cases.  We have done our best to foster a culture of excellence, affordability and transparency – no games or hidden costs.

Conveniently located in the Woodhurst Office Park, we have several experienced attorneys covering a wide range of practice areas. If you have any questions about our services, please give us a call at 417-233-0493 so that we can schedule your complimentary consultation.

The Piatchek Law Firm

How Are We Different From Other Law Firms?

We Provide Great Value to Our Clients: We provide high quality legal services, while maintaining reasonable rates.  This results in the client receiving great value for the money.  We believe that access to quality legal services should not be limited to just a select few, and nothing is more rewarding to us than helping our clients achieve their goals through our knowledge and experience.

Transparency and Goal Setting:  At The Piatchek Law Firm, LLC, we always have your best interests in mind. We will strive to understand your expectations and goals, and will be honest about whether we think we can achieve such outcomes.  If you are unsure of your goals, we will help you craft them.  If we believe you have unreasonable goals, we will be transparent and let you know that, and can help you adjust your goals or expectations, if necessary.   Once the goals of representation are agreed to, we will do our best to help you obtain the desired outcome.

We Know When to Litigate: Sometimes clients can get better results by negotiating or settling.  Other times, it makes more sense to fight.  Our highly experienced attorneys know when it’s time to negotiate a settlement, or when it’s time for court. Knowing the difference and discussing it with our clients helps us get the best possible outcome for our clients.

Respect: We are dedicated to treating everyone – our clients, our peers in the legal community, and even our opposition – with dignity, courtesy, and respect at all times. In doing so, we find we are often treated with the same respect in return.

We Care About the Ozarks: At the Piatchek Law Firm, we love the Ozarks and are engaged in our community.  We have a history of donating our time, money, expertise, and individual skills to many various organizations that keep our community safe, strong, and one of the best places to live and work in our entire country.

Top Local Attorneys: Our attorneys live and work here, and we have served our local community for many years. Managing Attorney Joe Piatchek was born and raised in Springfield, Missouri and proud to call the Ozarks his home.  Rest assured, our attorneys will work hard to help you get the best results possible.

Practice Areas

Estate Planning, Wills, and Trusts

Our law office understands that each family’s situation is unique, and most families have special, overriding concerns that must be addressed. There is no one-size fits all solution, and we will take our time to explore and explain all options.

Probate Law

If a loved one passed away, while still having assets titled into their own name only, and no beneficiary is named on those assets, probate may be necessary. Our experienced lawyers can help your family understand what assets need to be probated, what assets avoid probate, and can handle the probate process in many county courts throughout Missouri.

Business Law, Corporations, and LLC

Our business lawyers can help with matters like starting a new business, buying a business, selling a business, closing a business, preparing and reviewing contracts, conducting various business transactions, employment issues, or business litigation.

Family Law and Divorce

The family attorneys at The Piatchek Law Firm, LLC, handle many types of legal concerns that can affect families, including divorce, child custody, child support, modification, guardianship and adoption. We also handle many cooperative divorces on a flat fee.

Civil Litigation

Whether prosecuting or defending a case, we provide much care, dedication, and time-tested expertise in civil litigation matters, and move your case forward both inside and outside of the courtroom.

Real Estate Law

All of our attorneys are knowledgeable in real estate law, quite frankly because real estate concepts come up often in almost all other areas of the law, and a solid understanding of real estate law is crucial to many other areas in which we practice.

Declaratory Judgments on Vehicle Titles

Do you have a vehicle, but no title? Do you need a judge to declare you the owner, so you can get a title? We can assist clients in dealing with declaratory judgments for cars, trucks, boats, motors, motorcycles, trailers, motor homes, etc.

Elder Law

We are familiar with the many concepts at play, and can help your family navigate the sometimes complex world of wills, trusts, irrevocable trusts, asset protection, government agencies, social programs, and various facilities and living arrangements.

Workers Compensation

Workers’ compensation claims result from on-the-job injuries or other work-related injuries. Our law firm litigates all types of workers’ compensation claims of all shapes and sizes, from smaller injuries to more severe claims involving death or serious injury.

Criminal Defense

Do you have a vehicle, but no title? Do you need a judge to declare you the owner, so you can get a title? We can assist clients in dealing with declaratory judgments for cars, trucks, boats, motors, motorcycles, trailers, motor homes, etc.

Personal Injury

Our attorneys handle a wide variety of personal injury cases, big or small, simple to complex. No matter how big or small your case is, we will give you the first-class, personal attention that you deserve following your traumatic incident.

Traffic Tickets

We regularly handle all types of traffic tickets. We will attempt to keep your moving violation off your record, or attempt to reduce or eliminate the points being added to your driving record.
