About Me

One of the earliest cases I took on in my new practice was a medical malpractice wrongful death case that settled a few years later for $4.6 Million dollars.  That was the largest med mal settlement in Missouri for 2007.  Since then my practice has continued to grow with a primary focus of serious personal injury cases, however, I never overlook the small cases, I still enjoy those cases just as much and love getting great results for my clients.


I was born in St Louis and grew up here and graduated in the  top 10% of my class at SLU Law School in 2002.  I spent a few years at large lawfirms learning the ropes, getting courtroom and trial experience, and defending large corporations and insurance companies.  My experiences at these defense firms was invaluable and I enjoyed my time there, however, my heart just was not in it as I am a Plaintiff's lawyer to my very core.  I prefer the role of Matt Damon in the movie the Rainmaker as opposed to Jon Voight's character. 


In 2004 I started the St Louis Personal Injury Lawfirm of Sansone Law, llc.  Within the first year I began getting excellent results for my clients and absolutely love what I do and take enourmous pride in being the best trial lawyer I can become.
