About Tom


 


Tom A. Kapstrom is an experienced personal injury lawyer in Missouri, who is dedicated to fighting for those who have serious personal injury issues.  He founded Kapstrom Law Firm, LLC to give his clients an advocate for their interests in an often confusing and scary legal environment.  With 13 years of legal experience and a long history of community involvement, Tom Kapstrom understands the needs of his clients as well as the intricacies of the laws and complex procedural rules associated with trial practice.  A California native, Tom was born in Beverly Hills where he attended Beverly Hills High School.


 


Tom’s Educational Background


He received his Bachelor of Arts in Political Science in 2000 from the California State University, Bakersfield, later receiving his Juris Doctor from the Whittier College School Of Law.  Throughout his tenure in law school, he was certified as a law clerk which enabled him to make court appearances on behalf of many diverse clients, including two separate cities in Orange County, California.  Later, Tom assisted both personal injury plaintiffs and defendants while working at one of Bakersfield’s oldest and most prestigious law firm.


Tom founded his own law practice in 2013, and he has since dedicated his career to representing clients who need zealous representation when nobody else will help.  Through his connections and network of experts, Tom starts investigating each case from the very beginning to bolster each client’s case and he uses the best and most advanced technologies available, so he is always prepared for trial even if the case never makes it to court.

  • Calvin Rudi Stead

    Tom is very hard working, persistent, dedicated and honest. He digs into the facts and complex documents with a great deal of enthusiasm and does not get distracted or enveloped by minutiae. Tom is one of the few lawyers I have met or supervised in my 27 year career that is able to solve complex factual problems and make sense of them from a legal standpoint. This makes him stand out in my opinion. His work on many of our cases helped in obtaining more favorable results time and time again and losing him to Missouri was a great loss to our firm. I heartily endorse this lawyer.
