In 1981 he founded Schlapprizzi Attorneys at Law, which he has continued to expand through the years, to ensure those hurt by another’s negligence or other wrongful act could obtain justice. He was the lead trial lawyer in the longest civil jury trial in the history of Missouri.
Don is honored with long standing memberships of some of the most prestigious “by invitation” only, legal organizations in the country, including the International Academy of Trial Lawyers, the International Society of Barristers, and the American College of Trial Lawyers.
