We Protect the “Little Guy” – Not Big Corporations

Our firm safeguards the rights of ordinary Missourians — after injury accidents or or a traffic violation, during bankruptcy or while making a disability claim. Your well-being is our concern.

A Law Firm For Everyday People

Almost everyone needs a lawyer at some point in their lives. We may need to file a claim after a car accident injury, we may need help resolving a traffic violation or a DUI charge, or we may have to file for bankruptcy to provide ourselves a financial restart. It can be intimidating to go looking for an attorney, and we may waste precious time trying to figure out which one will best serve our needs.

At Pontello & Bressler, LLC, our attorneys help individuals and solutions to common legal issues. In some instances, we have stood in your shoes, wondering the best way to protect our rights or recover compensation when we need it to ensure a positive future. We strive to be accessible and responsive to all of our clients.

Our Goal: Justice And Resolution For You

We provide representation that focuses on providing the best result for you, whether that means maximizing your compensation or minimizing your losses. Case types we handle frequently include:

Our Approach: Representing You With Strategic And Tactical Skill

We consider ourselves successful at this stage if we have partnered with you to form a clear picture of the goal you have for resolving your case.

The tactics that we use during your case will vary according to your legal challenge. We have developed numerous tactics for maximizing your compensation or minimizing your losses in the following types of cases:

  • Personal injury claims
