Personal Injury Law
It’s been a powerful year.
Missouri Lawyers Media launched THE POWER LIST as a regular feature in 2020 as a way to examine the power brokers in various practices within Missouri’s legal community.
This month we’re getting back to our roots with a new POWER LIST that focuses on personal injury lawyers.
Lawyers who handle motor-vehicle collisions, product-related injuries, wrongful-death cases and other cases where plaintiffs suffer physical injuries are among the most visible members of the bar. Their work has the power not only to compensate people for the harm they’ve suffered but also to force companies to change their behavior.
Our editorial team interviewed attorneys and other leaders around the state, reviewed outcomes of significant cases and consulted the archives of Missouri Lawyers Weekly to arrive at our list. The 30 attorneys featured in our original POWER LIST published in July 2020 remain on this year’s list, but we’ve also added a few more whose work is just as influential and cutting edge.
Clearly, our list is inherently subjective. We expected that some readers would disagree with our choices and argue that there were other great lawyers should have been included. Some readers might still think we missed the mark. That feedback informs this list and will continue to help make our future POWER LISTs even better.
The POWER LIST was written by Senior Reporter Scott Lauck and Staff Reporter Jessica Shumaker. Reach them at [email protected] and [email protected].
