Summary

I have represented hundred of parties, both plaintiffs and defendants, in lawsuits in state and federal courts. My favorite cases are class actions under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) targeting senders of annoying and illegal junk faxes, robocalls, and text messages. I have litigated more than 150 class action lawsuits and been appointed as Class Counsel multiple times in federal and state courts. Class actions are great way to level the playing field between consumers and large corporations.

Outside of my law practice, I am an avid marathon runner, having completed more than 50 marathons, including running 100 miles in less than 24 hours, and I also enjoy fishing and global travel.

Q. What can I do if my job schedules me as a"customer service manager" and I get paid as a cashier?
A: 290.100. Any railway, mining, express, telegraph, manufacturing or other company or corporation doing business in this state, and desiring to reduce the wages of its employees, or any of them, shall give to the employees to be affected thereby thirty days' notice thereof. Such notice may be given by posting a written or printed handbill, specifying the class of employees whose wages are to be reduced and the amount of the reduction, in a conspicuous place in or about the shops, station, office, depot or other place where said employees may be at work, or by mailing each employee a copy of said notice or handbill, and such company or corporation violating any of the provisions of this section shall forfeit and pay each party affected thereby the sum of fifty dollars, to be recovered by civil action in the name of the injured party, with costs, before any court of competent jurisdiction.
Q. I worked for a Missouri company. I quit due to disagreements, the owner still has my information on her site.
A: You didn't ask a question. If you want to know what you can do, my first answer would be to request the removal of your information. But you've already done that. Hire an attorney to write a letter demanding removal.
Q. I thought I was purchasing a home. Put 15,000$ down (earnest money), then another 25,000$, along with 600/mo rent
A: Given that you put $40,000 down and signed a contact and you stand to lose the entire huge sum, it would be a good idea to schedule and appointment with an attorney to review the lease and see if there might be some out for you. I hate lease-purchase deals because so often then end poorly.
Q. I own the house where my roommate lived. I asked him to leave and he complied. He left property here. What do I do?
A: You cannot hold his property hostage but you could give a statutory notice of abandoned property.
Q. I need to know how to go about taking or proving that our contract for deed has been broken or if it's even leagal
A: You should schedule and appointment with an attorney to review the contract and discuss why you question its validity.
Q. Is an employer allowed to offer me a job, tell me to put my two weeks in and never work me?
A: The problem for you is that Missouri is an employment-at-will state. That means that had you been hired and started you could have still be terminated the next day simply because the employer changed its mind. For that reason, if you were to file suit you'd face a big obstacle in prevailing. I don't doubt that you suffered damages and are upset, and I don't blame you, but I don't know that it would make financial sense for you to pay an attorney to fight this battle. I hope you find better other employment soon.
Q. As a Unit Owner, how can I force Board compliance of MO 448.3-108 when the Board and Management Company refuses
A: I don't know what legal basis they are providing for not following the statute. If what they are doing violates the statute, you can file suit to obtain compliance but that will be a costly endeavor.
Q. At what speed does the Missouri highway patrol have to stop persuit
A: I'm not aware of any statute that would require an officer to stop pursuit at a certain speed.
Q. What are some ways to list grounds on a habeas corpus writ to make it stand out?
A: There's no simple answer other than that most habeas petitions get denied and you'll increase your chances of success by hiring an experienced attorney with habeas experience to represent you.
