We are premier Trial Attorneys.  As one of the most successful Plaintiff's firms in the Midwest, The Bird Law Firm is dedicated to providing excellent representation for injured people seeking justice.  We understand that every client has a unique set of needs, and we work hard to provide every client with the personal attention they deserve.  You will know that we care about your case and we will strive to obtain the best possible result for you.  Our principal, William Walker Bird, is a graduate of the Trial Lawyer's College in DuBois, Wyoming.


Since 2015 we have secured the two largest personal injury jury verdicts in the history of Buchanan County, Missouri following near zero offers from insurance company lawyers (See news reports in Articles section of this website).  Our founding attorney has recovered over $70,000,000 for injured clients during his 23 year career.  Rather than settle your case cheap, we handle each case expecting to go to trial.  We know how to try cases and we know how to win.  We aggressively represent clients with creativity, tenacity and open hearts.  We know how to listen to clients to truly understand their pain and hardship.  This allows us to share our clients' stories with judges and juries in a way that other lawyers cannot.  We also know how to highlight the opposing sides’ mistakes and failures in a way that underscores the seriousness of what has happened to our clients and why those errors need to be corrected through the justice system. 


We handle catastrophic medical malpractice cases; claims for injuries suffered by children and developmentally disabled people who have been abused or sexually assaulted by their caregivers; claims for injuries suffered by crime victims injured in shootings, assaults and rapes in parking lots and apartment complexes or other business-owned properties where the business owner had notice of violent crime in the area; significant trucking and automobile accidents; slip and fall injuries and injuries suffered by victims of dangerous products.  We are a "lawyer’s lawyer" firm with a substantial portion of our clientele coming on a referral basis from other attorneys.  Whether you are an injured person, a family member or an attorney seeking to refer a case—we have the experience, knowledge, track record and trial skills to help you get justice.
