About me

I love my job because I get to help real people


At my firm, Langdon & Emison, we are dedicated personal injury lawyers.  We represent real people who have been seriously injured and the families of wrongful death victims in a wide variety cases.


We take pride in helping our clients through the most stessful and painful time in their lives.  Our clients lives have been destroyed and turned upside down because of someone else's actions.  We help our clients put their lives back in order and ensure that those resonsible are held accountable.


I am a trial lawyer helping real people.  I, and other Langdon & Emison attorneys, actually try cases in courtrooms across the country.  I have represented real people against some of the largest corporations in the world, including General Motors, Ford, Toyota, Union Pacific, Bayer, and others.


Langdon & Emison attorneys battled General Motors through the federal courts and all the way to the Supreme Court of the United States... and won for our clients.  Baker v. GM, 522 U.S. 222 (1998) held that General Motors could not buy the slience of its former employee, Ron Elwell.  This 9-0 decision is now taught in law schools across the country.


During law school at the University of Missouri -- Columbia, I served as Associate Editor-in-Chief of the Missouri Law Review and received Order of Coif honors.  Following graduation, I served as judicial law clerk to the Honorable William Ray Price, Jr. of the Missouri Supreme Court.  Since joining Langdon & Emison in 2004, I have represented victims and the families of victims in Missouri and across the country.


Our clients and their cases have been featured in the national media, such as the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, USA Today, major network newscasts, CNN, Fox News and more.  Our experience, focus, and resources allow our lawyers to maximize the recovery for our clients, with total verdicts and settlements exceeding half a billion dollars.
