I began my trial practice 20 years ago, when I joined a small plaintiff’s personal injury firm. I then moved to the defense side where I have continued to litigate cases in the state and federal courts of Missouri and Kansas. I have also briefed and successfully argued numerous appeals in the Missouri Court of Appeals for the Western District of Missouri, the Missouri Supreme Court, the Kansas Supreme Court, and U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit.
I am a member of the Defense Research Institute’s Governmental Liability Committee and have served as the Publications Chair and Eighth Circuit Liaison. I also serve on the planning committee for the yearly Governmental Liability/Civil Rights Seminar. I was the Program Chairman for the 2016 Seminar in Austin, Texas. I am a member of the Defense Research Institute’s Product Liability Committee and recognized in the Missouri & Kansas Super Lawyers.
I have written articles and spoken at continuing legal education seminars for the Defense Research Institute, the Missouri Bar, and the Missouri Organization of Defense Lawyers. The topics have included the duty to warn in Missouri product liability situations, ethics, success with using summary judgment motions and changes in Missouri law concerning the standards for expert testimony. I am also a graduate of the International Association of Defense Counsel’s and Missouri Organization of Defense Lawyers’ Trial Academies and have instructed young lawyers at the Missouri Bar’s Trial College.
While our firm provides a wide range of legal services, my litigation practice focuses on:
Defending municipalities and governmental entities in civil rights and other personal injury or tort liability claims,Representing and defending individuals and companies in personal injury, products liability and construction defect cases, andRepresenting and advising insurance companies and other organizations on insurance policy matters.
