California & St. Louis Personal Injury Lawyer

Have you been injured in an accident?

This is a very difficult time for you. You have medical bills. You may be in a lot of pain. You are worried about how this accident is going to affect the rest of your life. And while you are trying to recover from your injuries, or death of a loved one, caused by the negligence of someone else, the insurance company for the other side is out building a case against you. Don't try to handle this by yourself. Let us help you. We promise that we will fight for you. There is no fee unless you win your case.

Over 50 Years Combined Experience

Our firm has combined experience of over 50 years. If you were about to undergo serious surgery, would you want a surgeon five years out of medical school, or someone who had been handling procedures like yours for over twenty-five years? When you are looking for lawyers, find out how long the lawyers handling your case have been practicing. Often you will find that they have only been practicing 5 or 6 years. Experience counts. Each of the lawyers at the Medler Law Firm has been handling personal injury matters for over 25 years. John Medler is a graduate of Brown University and Tammy is a graduate of Washington University, two of the best colleges in the country.
