We have assembled a talented team of trial attorneys from large and small firms, in-house practices and government. Our unique team brings diverse capabilities to our clients. We focus on accomplishing our clients' goals through aggressive advocacy and superior work product.

Carmody MacDonald's litigation attorneys have tried hundreds of jury and non-jury trials. Our litigation practice is led by Jerry Carmody, one of only a handful of St. Louis lawyers who is a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers. 

While prepared to prosecute or defend your claims in court, we are equally mindful that litigation is usually a last -- not a first -- option. Our team includes attorneys who specialize in identifying and managing litigation risks for individuals and corporations. We also provide mediation services and are well-versed in all alternative dispute resolution techniques. We are proud of the unique perspectives and capabilities of our civil litigation practice.

We have also developed a strong focus in real estate litigation. We handle complex commercial, financing and construction litigation disputes. In addition, we have achieved a concentration in eminent domain law, both by assisting developers in accomplishing complex projects and in helping landowners maximize their ownership rights. By working closely with attorneys in our real estate practice, Carmody MacDonald brings unique and focused capabilities to virtually every form of real estate litigation.
