This map shows the Best Lawyersdesignated “metro areas” in this publication.

CAPE GIRARDEAU SIKESTON

In order to collect feedback on firm and attorney work within specific regions, Best Lawyers curates “metro areas.” For research purposes, smaller and more rural cities located within a reasonable distance to larger cities are combined into single geographical regions—metro areas—to help us collect as much feedback and data for specific individuals, firms, and practice areas, as possible. We also award “Lawyer of the Year” accolades through these metro area distinctions.

For more than three decades, Best Lawyers lists have been compiled by conducting exhaustive peer-review surveys in which tens of thousands of leading lawyers confidentially evaluate their professional peers. If the votes for an attorney are positive enough for inclusion in Best Lawyers, that attorney must maintain those votes in subsequent polls to remain on the list for each edition. Lawyers are not permitted to pay any fee to participate in or be included on our lists. Best Lawyers’ peer-reviewed listings are now published in almost 70 countries around the world, and our presence has grown substantially in the international legal community. In the U.S. alone, Best Lawyers lists reach more than 22 million readers through newspapers and regional magazines. The 24th edition of The Best Lawyers in America (2018) includes 58,108 attorneys in 145 practice areas, covering all 50 states and the District of Columbia, and inclusion in this year’s publication is based on more than 7.4 million detailed evaluations of lawyers by other lawyers.

Medical Malpractice Ruling Upheld by High Court

Curtis, Garreet & O’Keefe: Leland B. Curtis (communications law; energy law, 1991) advised Owensville Mayor John Kamler on the Owensville parks fund budget for the fiscal year 2017–2018. After much debate among the aldermen, Kamler implored them to approve the budget, which eventually happened. He later shared his intentions to form a budget committee for future budget plans.

Greensfelder, Hemker & Gale: Leonard D. Vines (franchise law, 1995) and Beata Krakus were both nationally recognized by Chambers USA for their efforts in franchise law. David M. Harris (health care law, 1991) was listed as a top general commercial litigation, and Kevin T. McLaughlin (employment law – management; labor law – management, 2013) and Dennis G. Collins were named top employment and labor lawyers. Chambers USA also recognized Greensfelder as a top firm in St. Louis for corporate mergers and acquisitions, employment and labor law, general commercial litigation, and real estate law.

Shands, Elbert, Gianoulakis & Giljum: Charles S. Elbert (employment law – management; labor law – management; litigation – labor and employment, 2008) reviewed the Senate Bill 5, which aims to put stricter restrictions on abortion clinics. Elbert said, “Senate Bill 5 clearly pre-empts a portion of the ordinance, but the question is whether it does fully pre-empt the city ordinance. I don’t think it is entirely clear.”

HONORABLE MENTION

andberg Phoenix & von Gontard: Kenneth W. Bean (health care law; medical malpractice law – defendants; personal injury litigation – defendants, 2005) and Bobbie Moon (health care law, 2017) represented Mercy Hospital East Communities in a 2015 lawsuit against parents Marlin and Ma Sheryll Joy Thomas who alleged that Mercy Hospital Washington and Mercy Hospital East Communities were negligent with their baby’s delivery. A physician at the hospital was concerned about the lack of movement from the fetus and ordered fetal monitoring and a biophysical profile. Ma Sheryll Joy agreed to deliver the baby, and a cesarean section was then agreed to after the child’s heart rate decelerated during the delivery. The parents alleged that the physician should’ve immediately recommended the cesarean delivery rather than induced labor, which they believe resulted in brain damage to the newborn.

Moon said, “Our position was that unfortunately whatever caused the baby to have absent movement and initiated this process had already injured the brain. … Most likely an accident with the umbilical cord where it became significantly occluded for a period of time sufficient to cause brain injury but was relieved before it could cause a fetal demise.” In the original trial, EMissourian says that the plaintiffs allege that the trial court failed to strike for cause a prospective juror who expressed a “disqualifying bias in favor of defendants.” The juror had stated she would “start off slightly in favor” of Mercy since she had a sister who was a registered nurse at a different Mercy location. Judge Gael D. Wood ruled in favor of Mercy in the original case, and the high court ruled in a 6–0 decision that the juror had no knowledge of the case or its fact to form an opinion that required disqualification.

Evans & Dixon: Ronald Hack (mass tort litigation / class actions – defendants, 2014), Marta Marti Camp, Katerina Christodoulou, Paul Franke, Roger Franklin, Marc Landis, Ewa Lejman, and Maarten Roos have been named to serve one-year terms as vice presidents with Ally Law.

Greensfelder, Hemker & Gale: Mark E. Stallion (copyright law, 2010) has left Husch Blackwell and moved to Greensfelder, joining its intellectual property practice group as a leader of the patent team.

Stinson Leonard Street: David E. Everson (bet-the-company litigation; commercial litigation; litigation – antitrust; litigation – intellectual property, 2003); The Simon Law Firm: John G. Simon (commercial litigation; mass tort litigation / class actions – plaintiffs; medical malpractice law – plaintiffs; personal injury litigation – plaintiffs; product liability litigation – plaintiffs, 2005); and Christopher Hayes have been named to the Legal Services of Eastern Missouri’s (LSEM) board of directors.

Zerman Mogerman: Cary J. Mogerman (family law, 1999) and partner Joseph J. Kodner co-authored the recently published A Guide to Divorce in Missouri: Simple Answers to Complex Questions.

J. THADDEUS ECKENRODE MEDICAL MALPRACTICE LAW – DEFENDANTS

How did you get into your practice area? After leaving the St. Louis, MO Franklin County prosecuting attorney’s office after my first three years in practice, I joined a small insurance defense practice in Clayton that focused on medical malpractice defense and have continued predominantly in that area (along with product and some general liability) of practice now for the last over 30 years. Who are your typical clients? Insurance carriers, self-insured health care entities, individual physicians, and other professionals make up the bulk of our clientele. We do represent a number of small businesses and individuals in other matters as well. Describe one of your most interesting or memorable cases. As a young lawyer, I assisted my first boss on the Callahan v. Cardinal Glennon case, which became one of the seminal cases on causation. The sheer scope of the case, the number of experts and depositions taken in discovery, and the overall magnitude of the case was substantial, but the trial experience itself, from which numerous appellate issues arose, was unforgettable. What qualities do you possess that you find particularly relevant/necessary for practicing your area of law? Treating people professionally and with respect is important in this community in particular. Although we are in an adversarial setting in general, I think the ability to get along with my opponents and all counsel is important, since animosity amongst attorneys actually costs everyone’s clients in the long run. We may fight aggressively for our clients in trial, but you don’t have to act like a jerk in how you treat people as a case progresses. What lessons have you learned along the way? You’re never too old to learn something new, and you can never really predict what a jury will do or what they will find important. I have been fascinated over the years at hearing from jurors after trials about the questions they had and the things they thought were important. It gives me a renewed appreciation for how important it is that we thoroughly present our case to make sure we answer all the questions we think a person might have about the matter. Please provide anything else you would like to share regarding your practice. Most litigants come into a case with tunnel vision and only see their side of any issue. We try to make sure that our clients are prepared to understand the other side’s perspective, as well as the cost (both financially and emotionally) of litigation so that they can make a more intelligent decision about a long-term commitment to fighting a battle in court that may take years and could result in an adverse outcome. If they are fully informed and choose to continue that battle, we are willing to take any case through to a jury verdict and/or appeal.
