Having represented both persons and companies making these claims, as well as having been on the defense side, gives insight as to how to reach a favorable result.

Over 30 years of practicing law in Missouri, mostly in Clay, Jackson, or Platte Counties, or federal bankruptcy court, built a base of experience with which to advise clients.
