Our Threefold Foundation: Experience, Integrity, Connection
The lawyers at Rogers Sevastianos & Bante LLP know that our success stems from a strong foundation of:
Experience – Our lawyers have over 100 years of litigation experience in Missouri, Illinois, and in federal courts across the country. Individually, each of the partners has practiced law for 30 years or more. We represent high-profile clients, professional athletes, celebrities, media personalities, and ordinary, everyday folks in the St. Louis area and beyond. We have enjoyed the privilege of handling their legal matters and are proud of the difference we’ve made for thousands of clients.
Integrity – We understand the importance of handling cases in the most professional, ethical and efficient manner possible. In fact, our trial and injury attorneys are ranked AV Preeminent, which is when a lawyer’s peers rank him or her at the highest level of professional excellence. We have carried this rating in excess of 10 years, indicating that we are in the top 1% of our peers.
Connection – Our lawyers see every client as an individual who deserves professional guidance that is tailored to fit their unique and difficult situation. By getting to know each client on a personal level, we gain a clear understanding of their unique goals and concerns regarding the legal process. As a result, we regularly receive client satisfaction awards, which we feel are a testament to our commitment and dedication.
Serving Everyday Individuals
Founders Noel Sevastianos, John Rogers and Joe Bante created this firm to represent the people they care about: the little people. We have no interest in helping giant corporations make more money. Instead, we choose to focus on the real people. We take our clients seriously. Each case is important to us, and we take great pride in our results. With millions of dollars won for our clients, our favorite part of the job is providing our clients with the compensation they deserve. We’re here to stand up and fight for those who have been wronged and deserve adequate compensation. Rogers Sevastianos & Bante LLP concentrates on your rights, not the bottom line.
What Are Our Fees And Costs?
Our law firm charges NOTHING for legal services unless or until we win a personal injury or workers’ compensation case for you by trial or by settlement. Our fee is a percentage of the total recovery obtained, and we only recover costs we pay to advance your case when the case ends by settlement or verdict. In sum, our clients have no financial downside or risk in hiring us.
What Can I Expect At My First Consultation?
Our lawyers are privileged to have earned the respect of our peers and the greater metropolitan community over 100 years of collective experience. Yet we do not expect trust from a new client: we know it needs to be proven and earned. That starts with an initial consultation.
Our first meeting is always free, so you can expect that no charges will apply.
Depending on what sort of case you have: criminal, injury, or domestic, you may be asked to bring documents to your first meeting that are specific to your matter.
You can also expect to sign documents if you choose to retain our services. Fee agreements and forms that allow us to seek information from third parties are often the sorts of documents that need to be signed.
Social media: Expect to be told that you should not post anything on any social media platform that is not consistent with your legal issue. Photos of you lifting weights over your head if you are claiming spine pain from a motor vehicle collision is an obvious example of this. Less obvious, however, is an innocent photo of you by a pool with a beer in your hand. Such a photo can be twisted and taken out of context by those defending a case to suggest that your back pain can’t be that serious if you can still enjoy a cold beer poolside.
