If you are on our site, it is likely that you have a legal problem. We want you to know you are not alone. You have a nationally-ranked trial lawyer right in St. Louis willing to help. I have been honored in 2022 as a National Trial Lawyers-TOP 100 trial lawyer.
We are passionate about what we do and would love to help you. Small firms, like ours, rely on our good results and referrals, rather than TV commercials, to make a living. We fight the goliaths, whether they are insurance companies or the State of Missouri. We have even won against the United States of America! We are not about high volume or quick turnover. We are not going to send your case down the hall to a first-year lawyer to work up. We are not going to ignore your calls and send you to a paralegal. We are going to represent you with the time, passion, heart, and intelligence that your case deserves. A warning though… we will be direct with you about the strengths and weaknesses of your case… because we will know your case backward and forwards. We are gonna tell it to you straight.
As a personal injury lawyer, I have seen horrific results of accidents. Small children with immobilizing broken bones, fathers whose legs have been torn off, pregnant mothers killed by tractor-trailers, cyclists with broken backs. My practice is filled with devastating stories. Any lawyer can request medical records and demand a settlement from an insurance company; it takes a nationally-ranked trial lawyer to tell these devastating stories to a jury… and win! Make sure you hire a nationally-ranked trial lawyer and not just any lawyer, no matter what kind of case you have.
Whether it is a DUI, assault, burglary, or drug case, I approach every Missouri criminal case from the beginning as if we have to try that case. In this way, we are much more prepared to defend your rights and the Missouri state prosectors know I will be ready for trial. Many litigators don’t take that approach because they are inexperienced trying cases to juries. We have the real experience in the courtroom that you need. You cannot assume your lawyer is a TRIAL lawyer. We also don’t ignore the possibility of winning with written motions… which most criminal attorneys HATE. We excel on our motion practice and take the prosecutors off-guard as most do not have the time to brief lengthy responses.
The bottom line is that we are TRIAL lawyers and we will prepare your case for trial, if necessary. We will, from the very beginning, do a thorough investigation and evaluation of your case, not just the minimum to get a settlement or plea bargain.
Unlike the advertising high-volume law firms that you may see on television, I will not give you “drive-through” lawyering. We don’t have a rap jingle or billboard. We do law… not marketing campaigns. We spend our time and money on trials. We will not hesitate to proceed to trial to maximize a fair recovery on your case or to obtain a not guilty verdict.
Come in for a free office visit to meet me and talk about your case. We will let you know if we think we can help you. Thank you for taking the time to learn about our firm.
