We have been working with personal injury claims for decades. We know the insurance industry and the tactics insurance adjusters use to try to minimize the payout you receive.

When the amount of your loss exceeds the insured party’s liability limit, insurance adjusters will not tell you where additional coverage may be located. But we know where to look and what to do in order to maximize your recovery.

Both of our attorneys, Ed and Philip, have been rated by the prestigious legal publication Martindale-Hubble as AV Attorneys. This sets them at the top of the profession in both legal ability and professional integrity.

We've fought & recovered millions for our clients

Educating you through the process & informing you of the best option.

We'll explain your rights and find a solution.

There are often a number of ways to drive a matter towards a positive resolution. Out of court settlements are possible and in the right circumstances they can provide swift and satisfactory results with less cost or stress to you. But sometimes a lawsuit is necessary.

Whether your matter is settled in or out of court, your outcome will be a direct result of your chosen strategy and how it is implemented by your attorney.

Every case is different but our unrivalled experience and expertise in relation to Missouri personal injury matters allows us to provide valuable insight that very few attorneys can match.

Less accomplished or experienced attorneys might present you with one or two options and then push you in that direction. But we know what is likely to unfold and how best to deal with it. We will present you with all of your options. We will empower you to make intelligent decisions and to seize control of your situation.

With our assistance, you will take the front foot and will be in your strongest possible position to negotiate or to receive the compensation you deserve.
