Born and raised in St. Louis I graduated from DePauw University. After graduation I served as an officer in the US Navy, including a tour in Viet Nam. I returned to St. Louis and graduated from Washington University School of Law. I am admitted to the practice of law in Missouri and am a member of the state and local bar associations. I have experience in all Missouri and federal courts.
I have focused on Family Law, Estate Planning, Probate, Business Law and litigation relating to my areas of practice.
Any area of legal practice may involve court proceedings to reach solutions. Success at trial is always a result of careful gathering of information and organization to present a case to a judge or jury that makes sense and can support a decision in favor of the client. Litigation is costly, but when all other possible solutions have been explored the filing of a lawsuit may be required. The client should always select an attorney who not only has trial experience, but also has expertise in the practice are involved in the case.
