Attorney Doskocil Sitting on the couch with his arm around it dog

Growing up with a father who was a practicing attorney, I knew I wanted to pursue the legal profession as well. My father paved the way by instilling in me a passion for helping others, and I admired the way he successfully did just that throughout his career while managing his own firm. Knowing that I wanted to have that same autonomy over my work, I pursued a degree in Business Administration from Southeast Missouri State University before going on to obtain my law degree from Washburn University School of Law.

I graduated from law school in 1986 and participated in one of the first law school clinical programs in the country. I began my career by working at a big law firm to learn more about the trade. After 3 years, I started practicing with my dad. Working together was always the plan. For over 30 years, I have been licensed to practice in Missouri and Illinois, and have been awarded an AV Preeminent rating from Martindale-Hubbell, which is a significant rating accomplishment in my field that I’m proud to have.

I offer informed and impactful legal services for the real needs of people.


Since taking over the Doskocil Law Firm from my father, I have dedicated my practice to accessibility and transparency for my clients. l answer every call when I’m not in court or otherwise preoccupied. I have built a reputation for routinely returning calls the same day, usually within minutes. When you call, you talk to me, not a secretary or a paralegal.

I have been practicing law for over 30 years now. Driven to do the things most people need has led me to focus on:

  • Family Law

  • Estate Planning

  • Probate

  • Business Counsel

  • Civil Litigation

  • Criminal Defense

No matter what legal issue you may be facing, I believe that knowing my clients enhances the representation I can provide you to meet the needs and goals you have for your case.


With over three decades of experience, I understand what it takes to help people start their own business, plan their estate with a will or trust, collect damages through a personal injury claim, fight traffic or criminal charges, and navigate the processes of probate or divorce. I want to be a strong legal advocate for you and your family— the lawyer you call first for all of your needs.
