Partner Brad Medcalf came to the firm in April of 2015. He grew up in Saint Louis, Missouri, graduating from De Smet Jesuit High School. Brad was a Nike Blue Chip recruit coming out of high school. Ultimately, he elected to attend Saint Leo University in Tampa Bay on a lacrosse scholarship. While there, the team saw unmatched success, winning multiple conference championships.
Brad applied the same work ethic that made him successful on the playing field to the classroom. Academically, he was honored at the President’s Club Banquet, reserved for the highest achieving student athletes, every semester. After graduating with high honors, and a member of the honors college, with undergraduate degrees in English and Biology, Brad elected to attend the University of Missouri School of Law in Columbia, Missouri. While there, he experienced continued academic success. A Dean’s List member involved with various student groups, Brad was inducted into the Honors Society reserved for only high achieving law students. While still in school, Brad’s legal research and writing were so well received, an article he wrote was selected over numerous entries, for publication in a legal journal.
Brad has carried the good habits developed academically and athletically into a successful legal career. He has achieved at such a high rate he was offered an opportunity to become a partner at the firm. He accepted the offer with great excitement given the firms long-standing history of success. During his legal career, Brad has achieved multiple trial victories and negotiated million-dollar settlements. He received membership invitations to the American Academy of Attorneys “Top 40 Under 40 for Personal Injury Law” in Missouri, the American Institute of Legal Advocates “Personal Injury Rising Stars” in Missouri, the National Academy of Personal Injury Attorneys “Top 10 Under 40” in Missouri, and he accepted his membership invitation from the American Institute of Legal Counsel as a “10 Best Attorney for Workers’ Compensation” in Missouri.
Brad received a handful of other invitations to be honored, but those are not all listed here. Given his science background, Brad has taken quickly to all of the medical record review, comprehensive, and application necessary to be an effective personal injury and workers’ compensation attorney. He has found success on cases including workers’ compensation, wrongful death, slip-and-fall, motor vehicle accidents, defective products, and premises lability. Brad is a member of the Missouri Association of Trial Attorneys, Missouri Bar Association, the Eastern District Federal Court of Missouri, the Western District Federal Court of Missouri, 26th Judicial Circuit Local Bar, and the Missouri Young Lawyers Section – District 12.

Brad and his wife, Kirstyn, are the proud parents of two daughters Harper and Hadleigh.
