St. Louis Lawyers

Missouri Criminal Defense, Personal Injury & Family Law Attorneys

We Win Trials and Provide Aggressive, Results-Driven Representation Across MO and IL

Success in legal negotiations and in court often comes down to thoroughness and preparedness. Was key evidence located? Were your attorneys fully familiar with the law and the facts that control your case? Did your lawyers negotiate from a position of strength?

Did they push for:
– A dismissal or reduction of criminal charges?
– Every penny of compensation, from every person or entity?
– The best possible division of assets, property, and custody?

At the St. Louis law firm of Rogers Sevastianos & Bante, LLP, we have provided results-driven, what-ever-it-takes legal representation for a combined 75+ years to clients accused of state and federal crimes, those seeking compensation for personal injury claims and contractual loss, and those going through a divorce. At the St. Louis law firm of Rogers Sevastianos & Bante, LLP, we leave no stone unturned.

A Local Firm With a National Reach

We serve clients in federal courts and in courts across Missouri and Illinois. We also assist clients in trials all over the country.

Criminal Defense: We take an aggressive and proactive approach in defending the rights and freedoms of our clients. Our focuses are on complex federal criminal work, drug crimes, fraud, and internet sex crimes, while also handling violent crimes, DUI/DWI charges, and a range of other charges on a regular basis.

Personal Injury & Workers Compensation: We serve clients who suffer a personal injury law when working, driving, walking, cycling, shopping or doing just about any activity. We examine every potential claim you have to hold one or more responsible parties accountable. In the process, we make genuine and lasting connections with you, and together, we make our communities safer.

Our clients love us and our ability and willingness to communicate and educate them. Together, we make sure those that injure you (by negligence, mistake, carelessness, recklessness or intentional conduct) pay an amount of money that puts you back to the place you were before they hurt you. Compensation means to “make amends for loss or harm suffered”, and we work with clients who need that compensation for injuries caused in car accidents, work injuries and workers’ compensation claims, medical malpractice, slip, and fall/bad floor cases, and more.

Divorce & Family Law: We help individuals in divorce or other family law matters by expert legal counsel with vast experience in trial work and in negotiation. We seek, where possible, to resolve all issues in divorces including custody, support or matters regarding division of assets and debts in a favorable, sensible, cost effective manner and, with often, creative solutions, including complex and high net worth cases.

We explain the law so you have a complete understanding of your rights and options to make informed decisions about your case. We consider you to be a partner with us in the process of working through and resolving your case, by settlement or trial. We practice on a daily basis before the judges that handle your case and are able to provide realistic expectations concerning the outcome of your case. Our experience is extensive in most areas of family law including child custody, spousal support, military divorce, child relocation, and modifications in custody and support agreements.
