Mr. Marty’s legal career began as a research attorney for the Missouri Court of Appeals, Eastern District. Under the direction of Judge William H. Crandall, Jr., Mr. Marty saw first hand how the law permeates every aspect of our lives. It taught him the value and importance of the appellate process to the representation of clients.
However, Mr. Marty’s next legal employment shaped who he is as a lawyer today. In the late 1980’s and early 1990’s, Mr. Marty worked for lawyers who defended railroad companies against lawsuits brought by injured employees. Mr. Marty learned that the “deny and delay” tactics defense firms use to generate money hurt those who work for a living and their families. Consequently, he left the defense practice and never looked back.
Mr. Marty focuses his practice representing individuals against corporations and insurance companies in Missouri and Illinios. He is experienced in obtaining workers’ compensation benefits for those injured at work and monetary compensation for those injured in motor vehicle accidents.
Appellate work remains a vital aspect of Mr. Marty’s representation of his clients. He has argued appellate cases for injured workers at the Missouri Labor and Industrial Relations Commission, the Missouri Court of Appeals and the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission. He recently filed suit at against the state of Missouri to collect money from the Second Injury Fund. The highly publicized case was argued before the Missouri Supreme Court and influenced the Legislature to increase contributions to the Second Injury Fund to pay injured workers.
