Attorney Tom DeVoto: “Dedicated to you, because it’s happened to me”
While many lawyers fall into their areas of focus accidentally, I came to be a St. Louis personal injury attorney as the result of an accident. In 1972, my father was struck and killed by a young driver who had been drinking and was under the influence of alcohol. He was only 47. That accident tore a hole in my family that has never been filled. I know what it's like to miss a family member. As a St. Louis auto accident attorney, I take particular satisfaction in bringing drunken drivers, and drivers under the influence of drugs, to justice. In 2001, my daughter suffered a serious head injury in a traffic accident caused by the defective design and maintenance of a highway. Although she is doing remarkably well today, I watched her endure many years of continuous rehabilitation during her slow, painful recovery. Finally, because of my own back injury and subsequent surgery, I understand what it means to be in chronic pain, unable to work, to endure long physical therapy and to face a change in lifestyle. If you're looking for a St. Louis personal injury attorney who will make your case his cause, call our St. Louis personal injury office today.

Tom has represented me on a couple of matters.. Two worker's compensation cases and the accidents that caused my work injuries. He handled my cases quickly and efficiently and although they were not big cases he handled them like they were important cases. If any of my friends or co-workers get injured, I always give them Tom's name.
I was in an industrial accident, stairway collapse, and Tom handled my case against the owner of the building. When the topic of settlement came up before the start of the trial the defense lawyer mentioned a small amount, Later, Tom and I were in the elevator with the defense lawyer and Tom looked at him and said, you're going down. Watching Tom try my case and object and control the evidence was great. The jury gave Tom every single penny that he asked for. Tom and I stay in touch. I call him Big Tom.
