Prompt attention to you and your case
As St. Louis injury lawyers, we pride ourselves on taking care of our clients. If you’re having problems with the insurance company, medical providers or creditors while your case is pending, we can help. We explain your rights and protect them. We help you make an informed decision about taking the insurance company’s settlement offer versus going to trial. We’re always available to answer your questions and address your concerns.
Part of serving our clients is building the best possible case from the ground up. We have professional investigators and accident reconstructionists at our fingertips to rapidly respond to accident scenes in order to get witness statements and gather evidence.
Prepared to competently present your case for settlement or, if necessary, to try it to a conclusion
Unless your attorney is willing to go to court and finish what he or she has started with well-prepared and compelling arguments for a jury the defense has very little to cause them to want to settle out of court. Our St. Louis personal injury law office tries cases successfully, and insurance companies and their lawyers are well aware of Mr. DeVoto’s exemplary trial record. Rather than place their fate in the hands of a jury, they’ll usually meet us at the negotiating table and offer a fair settlement. That’s why other attorneys hire or refer us when their clients, friends or family suffer serious injury.
We’re ready when you are
We can’t stress enough the importance of reasonably prompt action to preserve evidence. But we understand that choosing an attorney is an important decision. We have a 24-hour answering system, and we do our best to promptly return your calls. Just like all the other personal injury, wrongful death, and workers compensation attorneys, the DeVoto Law Firm provides a free initial consultation, including evenings, weekends or hospital visits by appointment.

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.
