About me

I am a trial lawyer and partner at a three-man firm located in the City of St. Louis.  I have chosen to focus my practice on the representation of people injured as the result of the negligence and intentional conduct of others.  My practice includes cases arising out of insurance policy disputes, premises liability (injuries on another's property due to a dangerous condition), professional negligence, motor vehicle collisions and workplace accidents.

I have tried cases in state and federal court, represented men and women before the Missouri Division of Workers' Compensation and argued cases before the Missouri Supreme Court and Court of Appeals, Eastern and Southern Districts.  I am licensed to practice law in the State of Missouri as well as three United States District Courts - the Eastern District of Missouri, the Western District of Missouri and the District of Kansas.
