Meet Experienced Litigator Bret M. Rich
Welcome to my website. Thank you for taking the time to learn more about me and my St. Louis law practice. I hope you find this information useful. I do want to mention that if you have a criminal or personal injury issue you want guidance on and are not sure where to start, I offer a free consultation. I also help clients prepare their wills and trusts and offer probate representation and guidance.
I’ve been practicing law for over 30 years and have had my own firm since 1997. I have federal, state and municipal court experience in both Illinois and Missouri. You can read more details about my education and experience on the link that follows.
I think the main thing that sets me apart is my experience on both sides of the courtroom. I have been both a prosecutor and the attorney for the defense in hundreds of both jury and bench trials. Being a trial lawyer makes a difference because I have a profound understanding of how our legal system works. This is particularly useful in injuries and car crashes.
Deeply Rooted In My Community
I am passionate about the law and committed to serving the people in my community. I also give back by giving my time and knowledge. I have been a lecturer at Washington University School of Law. I stay current on legal issues and present classes for attorneys obtaining required continuing legal education. Since 2015, I have served as board chairman for Murphy Senior Living.
Over the decades, I have acquired a comprehensive understanding of the legal system. When I represent you, I put these decades of experience to work. Because I operate my own law firm, I am not limited to the interaction I have with you. I am able instead to give you the attention and focus you need and deserve through all phases of the legal process.
The advantage of working with an attorney who sets his own schedule means that I am highly responsive. I am committed to seeing your case through because the outcome matters to me. I am invested in your success.
Let’s Continue The Discussion
I know that often with legal issues, time is of the essence. Please call or email me at the firm to set up a complimentary initial meeting so that you can get the information you need. Call 314-788-4075 or connect with me via my online inquiry form.
