Buchanan, Williams & O'Brien, P.C.

At Buchanan, Williams & O'Brien, P.C, loyalty to our clients is the backbone of our practice. From our offices in Joplin, Missouri, we provide representation to people throughout the area who have been harmed by the negligence of other parties in cases involving medical malpractice, motor vehicle accidents, defective products, premises liability and workplace injuries.

We understand that after such an incident, many of our clients are unable to return work for prolonged periods if at all, placing them in severe financial straits. Our philosophy in this regard is simple — we do not charge anything until we are able to recover money for them. Our fee is then an agreed-upon percentage. We always keep our clients informed as to the progress of their cases, and while we strive to reach settlements when appropriate, we are unafraid to zealously advocate on their behalf in court.

Our six attorneys have more than 40 years of combined legal experience, and they have earned the esteem of their fellow professionals for their excellent track record and high degree of ethics. Both James V. O'Brien and Andrew Buchanan have been selected as Super Lawyers for several years. Mr. O'Brien has received an AV Preeminent* peer review rating through Martindale-Hubbell, and both of them have received "Excellent" peer review ratings through Avvo. They are often invited to deliver presentations to legal and business groups on various topics related to their practice area, and they have had articles appear in legal publications. Both of our attorneys are active participants in local and national legal organizations, including the Bar Association of Metropolitan St. Louis, the Missouri Association of Trial Attorneys, the American Association for Justice, and the American Bar Association.
