Every person and family that Bartimus Frickleton Robertson Rader attorneys represent receives the highest levels of expertise and care. The following examples are part of our proven track record of success in all types of cases.  It is important to remember that past results afford no guarantee of future results; every case is different and must be judged on its own merits.

Serious Injury

Life can change in an instant. When you or a family member suffers a serious injury, it’s hard to know where to turn. As attorneys, we choose to focus our work on serious injury litigation because we find fulfillment in helping people, not companies. We understand that after a tragedy, families are searching for answers – accountability for a lost life or assurance that no other family suffers the same way. We want to achieve more than a legal result; we want to be a source of comfort, compassion and resolution.

Trucking, Auto and Transportation Accidents

We commute to work, we road-trip on vacation, we carpool to school. But no matter how safe our driving, we face risks every time we are behind the wheel – other drivers, tractor-trailers, even trains. Safety and well-being can be shattered in seconds. Reaching a fair outcome can be a daunting process, made all the more difficult by insurance companies and highly regulated transportation industries. Our firm exists to help accident victims and their families find fair relief after trauma. 

Insurance/Bad Faith

We partner with other lawyers to represent policyholders whose liability insurance companies have denied coverage or refused to protect their insureds through settlement, companies whose insurance carriers have denied coverage and exposed them financially, and insurance carriers who have lost money as a result of another carrier’s bad faith conduct. We use our reputation, developed through decades of experience negotiating with insurers, to redress wrongs and get our clients the benefits they have paid for.


Bartimus Frickleton Robertson Rader is uniquely positioned to work before the higher courts; our appellate team includes Chip Robertson, former chief justice of the Missouri Supreme Court. Having heard appeals on the state’s highest court for 13 years, Chip has first-hand knowledge of what issues have merit and what arguments are most likely to persuade appellate judges. Kip Robertson, Tony DeWitt and Mary Winter also have extensive experience handling appeals.

Business Litigation

When your business interests are threatened by a breach of contract or through the harmful conduct of another person or company, you need a strategy that not only rights the wrong, but strengthens your business and reputation. Bartimus Frickleton Robertson Rader works on matters involving commercial disputes, breach of contract, business torts and fraud, and we strive for comprehensive solutions that help prevent future issues.

Class Action

Class action cases seek justice for large groups of people who have suffered from a widespread abusive practice by a corporation or individual. This type of litigation exists so that hundreds, thousands or even millions of individuals can band together and bring a case collectively, where it might not make sense to proceed individually. Our firm is selective and strategic about the class actions we take, focusing on novel cases with nationwide impact. We conduct thorough investigations, then build collaborations with quality law firms nationwide.
