Practice/Organization Description

I have been working in the Missouri legal community for 17 years and have been a trial lawyer since 1999. I started out my practice as a lawyer working for a large insurance defense firm representing big and small businesses in personal injury cases, with a handful of cases where I represented injured persons. Over the years, I had the growing desire to represent injured people full time instead of businesses. I opened the doors on my own firm five years ago relying on referrals from friends who respected me as a lawyer. I continue to receive most of my work from former clients and colleagues who believe in my passion and skill for representing injured people.

Why hire me as a personal injury lawyer? Here are some representative verdicts and settlements:

Local Trial Counsel on Walter Huggins v. Fed Ex Ground which was a personal injury case tried in December 2010 in federal court in St. Louis, Missouri. Won $1,050,000.00.

Trial Counsel on railroad crossing collision case representing truck driver and trucking company against Union Pacific railroad. Won $600,000.00 plus verdict after two week trial in St. Louis City.

Settlement prior to filing suit for $500,000.00 against railroad company for a dangerous railroad crossing where a minister was hit by a train at an unprotected and dangerous crossing.

I have also dedicated my life to being a cycling advocate and have made a lifetime commitment to volunteerism. I am currently the Immediate Past President of the non-profit PayBack, Inc. I have also had the great honor of being elected by my peers to the Missouri Bar YLS and was awarded the Chairman's Award for Outstanding Service to the Legal Community and Public two years in a row.
