Jack Epstein

Jack’s goal is to always provide fair and personalized services while aggressively pursuing the compensation his clients need and deserve.

Founding member and lead attorney, Jack Epstein, was born in Chicago, Illinois, but raised in a small town in central Missouri. He grew up in a rural area where he learned hard work and honesty. Jack attended the University of Missouri as an undergraduate and then attended the prestigious Washington University School of Law in St. Louis, Missouri. After graduation, he began his career working with other attorneys representing a variety of injured workers. He found that the way these lawyers did business sometimes benefited the lawyer more than the client. Jack broke away from the rest to form his own practice, a practice inspired by the attorneys of his generation, one that is fair, honest, and dedicated to obtaining the best possible results for its clients.
