MCCHESNEY & ORTWERTH: A DIFFERENT BREED OF LAWYER
Lawyers Brian McChesney and Craig Ortwerth bring more to the table than most lawyers. They are a different breed of lawyer. McChesney began his career as a lawyer for a large insurance company, but resigned when he realized that he was on the wrong side of the fight for justice. Ortwerth also began his career as a lawyer who defended large corporations. Like McChesney, Ortwerth knew in his gut that something needed to change. So McChesney and Ortwerth joined forces and have been representing real people just like you ever since. Together, they have 38 years of experience.
McChesney and Ortwerth have a “David versus Goliath” mentality. They have a long history of defeating big insurance companies and large corporations; they were both athletes in college and are highly competitive by nature; and they embrace their role as the underdog because they are real people who enjoy representing real people. No case is too big and no case is too small. So you are in the right place if you are looking for a lawyer to fight for justice in a personal injury case, wrongful death case, workers’ compensation case or family law matter.

Missouri accident & injury attorneys capable of winning large settlements for clients injured or killed due to an accident or negligence
We specialize in defending those injured in commercial trucking accidents. After a crash involving a commercial truck, it is important for you to hire an truck accident attorney IMMEDIATELY. In most cases, the trucking company will send a “crash team” to the scene of the collision to investigate within 24 hours. Their crash team will likely include lawyers, reconstruction experts and insurance adjusters. Their job is to collect evidence and protect the financial interests [profits] of the trucking company and the insurance company.
If you have been injured on the job, your employer and its insurance company should be paying for ALL of your medical treatment. If you are unable to work because of your injury, you should be receiving temporary disability checks for ALL the time you miss from work. And when you are finished with your treatment and return to work, you may be eligible additional money for a permanent disability. Do you believe the insurance company has your best interests in mind? Do you believe the insurance company will treat you fairly? The insurance company has experienced lawyers working on its behalf. Shouldn’t you have experienced lawyers working for you?
