John M. Reeves


From having litigated complex discovery and constitutional issues, both in private practice and as an Assistant Missouri Attorney General, to having personally briefed over 250 appeals, I draw on a deep amount of experience to provide my clients with the representation they deserve. I always remember that litigation is an art that demands outstanding performance on numerous fronts: attention to detail, rigorous investigation of the facts, skillful argument and –above all else–the wisdom to know what course of action will best benefit my clients. Brinker & Doyen provides the perfect atmosphere for ensuring that its attorneys and staff master this art and achieve the best results for their clients.”
