About me

I operate a solo law practice in St. Louis (Chesterfield), Missouri.  I concentrate my practice in appeals, estate planning and general business law.  I also assist trial lawyers on a contract basis with legal research and trial briefs.  I teach appellate advocacy as an adjunct faculty member for the moot court program at Saint Louis University School of Law.  And I teach business law as part of the adjunct faculty at Maryville University.  The most unique aspect of my practice is my commitment to preparing persuasive written briefs and oral arguments.  Visit the Reported Cases section of my Company website ( for a list of my successful appellate decisions.  View my sample briefs and articles on JD Supra.
