Born and raised in St. Louis as the son of an asbestos worker, Jerry has experienced the damage that asbestos exposure can cause first-hand. After joining O’Brien Law Firm in 2005, he is dedicated to the pursuit of justice for victims of asbestos disease and their families.
“I grew up in a working-class family with my father and many uncles involved in the construction trades,” Jerry states. “I enjoy working closely with families who, like my own, have been affected with asbestos-related illnesses caused by factors beyond their control. Based on my background, work experience and Midwest values, I am motivated to pursue the best possible outcome for my clients.”
After graduating with honors from Saint Louis University with degrees in political science and business, Jerry earned his Juris Doctorate from the University of Dayton School of Law in 2004. Currently, he works closely with many union locals and construction trade organizations located in the Midwest.
Jerry lives in south St. Louis city with his wife, Jill, and their four children. He is licensed to practice law in Missouri and is a member of the Missouri Association of Trial Attorneys.
