Honest, Superior Legal Services since 1877

We are a civil trial law firm. We believe that is an important distinction which separates our firm from many other lawyers and law firms in Southwest Missouri. We have the experience, know-how and resources to successfully prepare for and try lawsuits, including jury trials. Our attorneys have successfully tried cases in state and federal courts, from trial through the appellate stages.

We represent individuals, businesses and insurance companies in cases involving automobile and truck accidents, product defects, business and probate litigation, workers’ compensation and premises accidents.

Our firm also regularly handles probate administration, wills, trusts, real estate and business documents, documents and issues specific to mediation, traffic tickets, and other driving offenses, including DWI.

Our Philosophy

We encourage our clients to avoid disputes and their accompanying risks and expenses. But, when real conflicts arise, we are experienced and equipped to represent our clients efficiently and zealously. Our goal is to save money or make money for our client, while serving our profession honorably.
