How does your service stand out?

I am David Ransin, I handle serious cases where innocent people have lost their lives or suffered life changing injuries. For over 30 years, I have found purpose in my work each day fighting for the hardworking people in our community. So I truly hope you never need my services, but if you know someone who does, I would appreciate it if you kept me in mind. There are many great law firms that handle personal injury law in Missouri. At Ransin Injury Law, one of the main separation points from our peers is that when you hire Ransin Injury Law to handle your case, you will be working exclusively with me. Why is this important? Experience and focus are two extremely significant attributes you need displayed by your attorney. I have dedicated the last 33 years of my practice solely to personal injury cases. This focus and experience allow our clients to receive the highest level of expertise and knowledge for their case, as well as having the advantage of working with an experienced attorney, never an associate attorney.


What do you enjoy about the work you do?

My clients are more important than the money I make fighting for them. I work with clients who care more about getting back to their lives, rather than focusing on getting a big 'payday' from their case. This doesn't mean that I am not focused on getting the best economic results for my clients (I do), but my 'bottom line' is not a number, it is people. That is why I work with reasonable clients who prioritize their health and happiness over money.


What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

We Put You First

At Ransin Injury Law we bring a unique perspective to the attorney client relationship with honest and responsive communication delivering solid results. In our initial meeting I will either come to you if you are unable to travel or you can meet with me at my office. We will sit down for at least an hour where I will explain this process, get to personally know you and your family and give you an idea of how much your case is worth. 


We work hard for YOU

  1. Stay in touch: I will return your emails and calls promptly and keep you informed about the status of your case.
  2. Quick solutions: I will resolve your case as quickly and efficiently as possible.
  3. Keep it simple: I will not drag you through unnecessary litigation (or force you to go to trial if you don’t want to).
  4. Optimize case value: I will optimize the net result to you by increasing case value and decreasing medical obligations.
  5. Focused representation: I will focus our energy, expertise and resources ONLY on pedestrian, motorcycle, semi-truck and auto accident cases to provide you with.
  6. Low stress solutions: I promise to decrease your stress, not add to it.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? 

If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident, then it never hurts to consult an attorney to help you. My time is free, I would like to invite you to meet with me, where I will educate you and your family on what you should with your accident claim, how much your case may be worth and most importantly how best to protect your legal rights and not be taken advantage of by the insurance companies. When you hire Ransin Injury Law you pay nothing upfront. We only get paid when you get paid. You will pay nothing until we successfully resolve your case.

Work accident
After hiring the Ransin law firm my case started moving forward. They always stayed in touch to keep me updated. I am very satisfied with CJ Moeller’s expertise and guidance. Dave Ransin would assist and advise as needed. Serena was always pleasant, and on top of things. The conclusion of the case was very satisfactory. Even though we didn’t ultimately go to trial, CJ was always prepared and willing to do so. Very pleased with Ransin law.

The Best
In 2019 my family and I have suffered a horrible tragedy that left us devastated. My father passed away in road accident in state of Missouri. Ransin Injury Law came as higly recommedned and rightfully so. Our case was represented by CJ Moeller and Paralegal Serena Hendrickson, their commitment to the case and profesionalism was unparallel. Extremlly humble, knoladgable and carring individulas. They kept us informed at every step of the way as case went on and treated us as a family in these horrible times. We could not be more thrilled with posetive outcome in this dark times and the for the justice my Dad deserved. If in need look no further than these incredible group of people and Law firm. they are second to none

Ransin Law, Associates and Staff
I was in a near fatal car accident in 2017 in the state of Missouri. As a resident of NYS, I was referred to Ransin Law. It has been a long and successful journey until the present time. My representing attorney throughout the whole time as a client is CJ Moeller and his associate Serena Hendrickson. They both have been extremely professional and knowledgeable of law as applied to my case. I would highly recommend contacting Ransin Law for the "top of their profession"law firm. And for successful outcomes and decisions in your favor financially.

Ransin was a great firm to work with
Ransin and his team were great to work with. Having never been in a situation where I needed a lawyer before I was unsure of the process and how to navigate thing dealing with insurance and medical bills. Serena and CJ took their time to explain everything and provide sound recommendations. They made the best out of a bad situation and I would highly recommend Ransin Law to anyone in need.

Ransin Law is the best!
Ransin Law is the best! Was referred to me by another attorney who had attended law school with David, she could not have referred a better firm! Serena and David handled our wrongful death case for my son and his surviving children. They could not have been more compassionate & caring. Always responded to questions, concerns, text, & emails quickly. Everyone went above and beyond what was expected. Professional, knowledgeable, courteous, and friendly.

When looking for an honest lawyer that is knowledgeable you can count on David Ransin and his team.
My five year old son had a fall and I was expected to deal with an insurance company who wanted to blame my son. When I contacted the office for the first time I was shown nothing but care for my son's well being and that care has never waned. My family has never been left wondering what was happening with the case or what was going to happen next. David always made sure that not only I or my husband understood things but that our son understood. My son was treated like a person and not just another case. David and Jessica have truly went above and beyond with a personal touch. I would recommend that if you're injured let David help you to make sure that you're taken care of fairly.

Motorcycle Accident
I was in a head on motorcycle accident. I was recommended to call Mr. Ransin, could not have been more pleased. I was having problems getting the insurance company of the party that hit me taking care of my medical payments, and Mr. Ransin took care of everything, efficiently and professionally. I have recommended him to other people I know having the same problems, and he has always been upfront and able to give these people good advise. I would highly recommend him.
