In the early years, I worked exclusively in the South St. Louis area. Clients were seen at the South City office located on Hampton Avenue. Myself and my attorneys would schedule appointments with Personal Injury, Workers’ Compensation, Social Security Disability. Over time, I began getting clients from surrounding communities like Affton, Marlborough, Kirkwood, Webster Groves, Maplewood, Brentwood, Clayton, University City, Crestwood and Sunset Hills.

After several years, another office was established in Overland. With the opening of that office my the firm began to represent clients from St. Ann, Florissant, University City, the outskirts of Clayton, St. Charles and Maryland Heights. In time, I decided to relocate my North County office to Bridgeton. My firm was able to expand its base of operation and began obtaining clients from Hazelwood, Florrisant, Olivette, and St. Charles, Creve Couer, Manchester, Ballwin and Chesterfield. A South County office soon followed, and this move expanded the firm’s clientele into the South County area. The firm began seeing a flow of clients from LeMay, Hillsboro, High Ridge, Oakville, Arnold, Valley Park and Fenton.

At one point, I opened two offices in St. Charles County. The first office was located in St. Charles City and the second office was located in Weldon Springs. Eventually I decided that these locations were too remote, but by then, I had established a loyal clientele from St. Peters, O’Fallon Wentzville and St. Charles, and even from more remote areas like Cottleville, Defiance, Troy,Wright City and Warrenton.

Over the years that my firm has represented numerous clients from remote places like Farmington, Columbia, Jefferson City and Springfield and Moberly. At one point, when TWA was at its peak , I had numerous clients who were St. Louis based flight attendants but came from cities all across the country.

I have also handled numerous Illinois workman’s compensation and personal injury clients also crossed the river from Belleville, Cahokia Alton Granite City, Edwardsville, Columbia, East St. Louis and Waterloo. Please schedule an appointment with me at one of my convenient locations where you will enjoy free parking.
