Don Schlapprizzi is the President of Schlapprizzi Attorneys at Law and is one of the most highly regarded trial lawyers in the State of Missouri. In 1981 he founded Schlapprizzi PC, which he has continued to expand through the years, to ensure those hurt by another's negligence or other wrongful act could obtain justice. He was the lead trial lawyer in the longest civil jury trial in the history of Missouri.

Over the years, his firm has handled a wide variety of cases in Missouri and Illinois. He has earned the respect of his peers and inspired countless legal professionals, including his children Craig and Toni: both are personal injury lawyers and they are proud to work beside their father.

Don is honored with long standing memberships of some of the most prestigious "by invitation" only, legal organizations in the country, including the International Academy of Trial Lawyers, the International Society of Barristers, and the American College of Trial Lawyers. The latter's elite membership comprises less than one percent of the lawyer population as well as every member of the Supreme Courts of both the United States of America and Canada.

Don has served on the American College of Trial Lawyers Federal Rules of Civil Procedure Committee and currently serves on the Jury Committee. For more than 16 years, he served on the prestigious Missouri Supreme Court Committe on Civil Jury Insturctions.

He is a graduate of Washington Unversity in St. Louis, where he received both his B.A. and J.D.
