Fighting for the rights of clients throughout the State of Missouri
If you are the victim of a personal injury because of someone else's negligence, or if you need assistance with a workers' compensation claim, it is vital to hire an attorney who will aggressively fight for your rights. My name is James G. Krispin, and with more than 25 years of experience, I have the ability to either effectively settle your case to your benefit or fight for your rights in front of judges and juries across Missouri. Focusing on the areas of personal injury, workers' compensation, trial and appellate law, and dram shop litigation, I have the extensive knowledge of Missouri law that is necessary to get you the results you deserve.

Combining experience and dedication to get you results
Since February 1992, I have handled hundreds of cases involving individuals and businesses across Missouri. This extensive experience with a wide variety of cases has helped me gain a deep knowledge of the law that many attorneys have not been able to acquire. I have no fear when it comes to litigation, and I thrive on the challenge that each new case gives me. When you come to my St. Louis office for help with your legal problems, you will receive representation from a lawyer with:

-A career of accolades In addition to satisfying clients across Missouri, I am AV Preeminent Peer Review Rated by Martindale-Hubbell, the highest rating available for legal abilities and adherence to ethical standards and have also been selected into Super Lawyers for 2011, 2012 and 2013.
