For over thirty years I have been a St. Louis Attorney in Missouri. My educational background is located at the bottom of this page. I started out in 1986 with the law firm of Shifrin & Treiman as an associate in the Tax Department. After a couple of years, Shifrin & Treiman dissolved and I joined the law Firm of Herzog, Crebs & McGhee in downtown St. Louis where I headed up the tax and business practice and became a partner in 1994. I left Herzog, Crebs & McGhee in 1999 and joined a firm which merged with Husch & Eppenberger, LLC in 2000. At Husch and Eppenberger, LLC, I continued to practice as a partner the general business and the tax and estate planning group. While at Husch & Eppenberger, LLC I was the firm's representative to TerraLex, an organization comprised of independent law firms throughout the world. Through TerraLex, I have made contacts with lawyers throughout the world which allows me to refer clients whom have legal needs in other jurisdictions to attorneys who I know and whom I have confidence.
In early 2005 I left Husch & Eppenberger, LLC to start my own legal practice. Essentially my decision to start my own practice was driven by my desire to keep legal costs for my clients affordable and reasonable. Although the solo practice of law can be challenging at times, it also can very interesting. Although I maintain a small outside legal office, the majority of my legal work is done in my home office. Essentially I found that by maintaining the majority of my practice through my home office I could keep my overhead costs at a minimum thereby allowing me to keep my legal fees reasonable for my clients.
In addition to my practice as a St. Louis Attorney, I also serve as a member of the Town & Country Board of Adjustment which is the board that must approve any ordinance variances in the City of Town & Country, Missouri. I live in Town & Country, Missouri with my wife, two kids and two Labrador retrievers.
