I bring an extensive and balanced background to the practice of law and litigation.

I began my career in a small law firm setting focusing on a general practice, including criminal defense, estate planning and family law. Thereafter, I spent several years practicing personal injury law for a high volume, established injury firm in downtown St. Louis. This job gave me my first real taste of litigation and jury trials. I next spent over four years on “the other side”, working as a catastrophic accident attorney for a St. Louis-based trucking insurance company. While there, I led trucking/transportation companies and attorneys through death and serious injury lawsuits nationwide, including the resolution of more than 10 million-dollar+ exposure cases, the largest being a $10.9-million-dollar wrongful death settlement in Illinois. In the process, I learned how insurance companies investigate catastrophic accidents and how they analyze the value of a case.

I left the insurance industry with a desire to get back to practicing law for everyday people, which is what I do today.

?

From an injury and litigation perspective, I have significant experience handling auto, truck, premises liability, slip and fall and workers’ compensation accidents.

?

From a business and planning perspective, I have experience in Estate Planning for individuals, business planning and business litigation.

?

A native St. Louisan, I live in St. Louis County with my wife and three children.
