Biography

I have represented hundred of parties, both plaintiffs and defendants, in lawsuits in state and federal courts. My favorite cases are class actions under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) targeting senders of annoying and illegal junk faxes, robocalls, and text messages. I have litigated more than 150 class action lawsuits and been appointed as Class Counsel multiple times in federal and state courts. Class actions are great way to level the playing field between consumers and large corporations.

Outside of my law practice, I am an avid marathon runner, having completed more than 50 marathons, including running 100 miles in less than 24 hours, and I also enjoy fishing and global travel.

Legal Answers
Q. What all do you need to do on a discovery as a defendant?
A: Answers to interrogatories should be notarized in Missouri. No cover letter is necessary. You should also file and serve a certificate of service. It's not required that the plaintiff provide the notarization page but you could request one.
Q. I live in Dent County my neighbors have five dogs I'm deathly afraid of dogs they keep coming in my yard what can I do
A: 273.033. Killing or injuring a dog, reasonable apprehension of imminent harm is an absolute defense. — 1. In any action for damages or a criminal prosecution against any person for killing or injuring a dog, a showing by a preponderance of the evidence that such person was in reasonable apprehension of imminent harmful contact by the dog or was acting to prevent such imminent harmful contact against another person by the dog shall constitute an absolute defense to criminal prosecution or civil liability for the killing or injuring of such animal.   2. If a person has, on at least two occasions, complained to the county sheriff or to the appropriate animal control authority in his or her jurisdiction that a dog, not on a leash, has trespassed on property that such person owns, rents, or leases or on any property that constitutes such person's residence, and when at least one of the prior two complaints was motivated by reasonable apprehension for such person's safety or the safety of another person or apprehension of substantial damage to livestock or property, then any subsequent trespass by such dog shall constitute prima facie evidence that such person was in reasonable apprehension of imminent harmful contact. The county sheriff or animal control authority to which any complaint under this section is made shall notify the owner of the alleged trespassing dog of such complaint. Failure by a county sheriff or animal control authority to notify a dog owner under this subsection shall not invalidate or be construed in any way to limit any other provision of this subsection.   3. The court shall award attorney's fees, court costs, and all reasonable expenses incurred by the defendant in defense of any criminal prosecution or in any civil action brought by a plaintiff if the court finds that the defendant has an absolute defense as provided in subsection 1 of this section.   4. This section shall not be construed to provide an absolute defense to a person who is engaged in or attempting to engage in a criminal activity at the time of the apprehension of imminent harmful contact, or to a person for any damage or injury to any person or property other than the dog itself that may result from actions taken in an attempt to injure or kill such dog. -------- (L. 2009 H.B. 62)
Q. I live in Missouri and in a low rent housing complex. Everytime we get a stimulus check she raises the rent!
A: Unless you are subject to a lease that has not expired or your lease agreement provides otherwise, your landlord can demand an increased rental amount for a new lease term.
