Practice areas

I bring a specialized background to the practice of injury law and litigation.  After graduating from the University of Missouri, I spent several years practicing personal injury law for a high volume, established injury firm in downtown St. Louis.  Thereafter, I spent over four years on "the other side", working as a catastropic accident attorney for a St. Louis-based commercial transportation insurance company.  While there, I led trucking/transportation companies through accident litigation nationwide, including the resolution of more than 20 multi-million-dollar exposure cases, the largest being a $10.9 million dollar wrongful death settlement in Illinois.  In the process, I learned how insurance companies investigate accidents and how they analyze the value of a case.  While my specialty is truck and transportation accidents, I also have significant experience handling auto, premises liability, slip and fall and workers' compensation accidents.  I also have experience advising on minor criminal matters, estate planning and business litigation.
