Bart’s passion for justice led him to O’Brien Law Firm. “I view my work on behalf of asbestos victims as a natural progression from my work as a criminal prosecutor,” Bart states. “Both disciplines essentially focus on seeking justice for victims harmed by the criminal acts of others. I enjoy coming to work every day knowing that I am representing the grievously injured who are in need of our expertise and help to represent the victims of asbestos exposure.”
During tenures as a St. Louis city prosecutor and a personal injury attorney representing injured railroad workers, Bart’s career accomplishments included successfully prosecuting and trying juries cases involving repetitive stress injuries ($900,000 verdict); catastrophic damage to the inner ear ($2.5 million verdict); contractual disputes; drug distribution and possession offenses; guns and weapon offenses; criminal assaults; robberies; and home invasions.
A 1996 graduate with honors from the Saint Louis University School of Law, Bart received the American Jurisprudence Award in Evidence and Trial Advocacy and served as a member of the Moot Court Board and Law Review.
He currently lives in University City with his wife, Meghan, and their two children and is licensed to practice in Missouri and Illinois state and federal courts.
