Skilled Trial Advocates Who Are Determined to Win

All four of our attorneys have received the highest possible AV® Preeminent™ 5.0 out of 5 rating* from Martindale-Hubbell. Referring lawyers and legal opponents alike respect them for their trial skills and integrity. Clients appreciate their deep concern and ability to obtain results.

Our experience with complex personal injury litigation gives our clients an advantage in pursuing their rights against powerful insurance companies and corporations.

One of our most important strengths is our ability to prove up damages in factually complex cases, especially those involving medical malpractice, severe brain injury or spinal cord injury.

We do not limit our practice to the most severe permanent injury and wrongful death cases. We also handle cases involving uninsured motorist claims, industrial accidents and losses suffered because of the negligence of other attorneys, real estate or insurance professionals, and law enforcement agencies.

Our goal in any case we accept is to give the individual victim a chance to recover the full amount of compensation available under the facts and the law, without cutting corners or making unnecessary compromises.

St. Louis Trial Lawyers About Us

Compensation for Victims of Negligence

We represent people in personal injury cases involving auto accidents, truck accidents, medical malpractice, products liability and other acts of negligence. Our firm is able to commit the legal and investigative resources necessary to develop even the most complex cases at our financial risk and not yours.

An important factor in our success is our ability to coordinate the development of expert testimony on the technical aspects of your case, and present this evidence in terms that defendants' insurers and trial jurors will understand. In cases involving medical malpractice and products liability, the effective use of experts will often be the decisive factor in establishing the defendant's liability.

We will take similar care in the preparation and presentation of the damages component of your case. Our attorneys will document every aspect of your demand for compensation and back it up with credible proof. We will seek maximum compensation for you.

No Recovery, No Fee

Our firm accepts personal injury cases on a contingency basis. You will owe an attorney fee only if we obtain compensation for you.
