Brown & James, P.C. is a Midwest regional law firm with more than 80 lawyers representing companies in litigation, appeals, and insurance coverage matters. With offices in St. Louis, Kansas City, Springfield, and Columbia, Mo., Belleville, Ill., Wichita, Kan., and Little Rock, Ark., Brown & James lawyers regularly represent clients in state and federal courts and before administrative agencies throughout the region.

Brown & James has been recognized as one of the top trial firms in the Midwest, receiving numerous awards honoring both the firm and individual lawyers, and was the lone recipient of Missouri Lawyers Weekly’s “Winningest Defense Firm” honor, which was awarded from 2008 through 2015.

We limit our practice to civil trial and appellate matters. While many law firms include a "litigation section," each of our principals is an experienced trial lawyer, ready to litigate when it makes sense. Our firm is known for its readiness to "do battle" for clients. As a result, we often have a distinct advantage in settlement negotiations.

Our trial experience and determination are powerful benefits in every legal situation. When you want results, our lawyers offer the commitment and expertise you need. Whether you want to develop preventive legal practices for your organization, take your case to trial, negotiate a favorable settlement, or file an appeal, you can count on Brown & James.
