I am a St. Louis trial lawyer.
I help folks who can’t help themselves. That’s the way I was raised. My father was a WWII vet and then a carpenter and my mother raised 6 children and served as a School teacher. I learned at an early age that there is no substitute for hard work. I was born and raised in St. Louis. I enrolled at the University of Missouri, walked on the football team, and ultimately graduated in three years. I then attended and graduated from St. Louis University Law School in 1980. I have been a trial lawyer ever since with well over 100 jury verdicts.
Tony Bruning’s Unparalleled Experience & Injury Cases
My clients include people who have been injured by dangerous products and the negligence of others. My cases have resulted in some of the largest verdicts in Missouri and Illinois. While most of my cases involve fires and explosions I have vast experience in products liability, medical malpractice and trucking accident cases. My largest case was a 1999 verdict against a smoke detector manufacturer for 50 million dollars arising out of the deaths of two children. In 1989 I was honored as “Man of the Year” by the National Association of Fire Investigators for my work in Klein v. General Electric – a case which exposed a defective and dangerous coffee maker which led to the recall of 7 million products. I am a nationally certified fire and explosions investigator and I am asked to speak regularly at national fire and explosions symposiums on the legal aspects of fires and explosions. If I can help you with your case, please contact me.

About Me: AJ Bruning
I was an athlete in high school playing both football and track. I then went to undergrad at the University of Missouri where I could enjoy my passion for Mizzou sports up close. After obtaining my degree in Business Administration I went to St. Louis University for Law School. I knew I wanted to be in court so after law school I obtained a job working at the Circuit Attorney’s Office in the City of St. Louis. It was at the Circuit Attorney’s Office that I was able to hone my trial skills while representing victims of crime. At the Circuit Attorney’s Office, I tried over 50 cases starting with simple assaults and then eventually murder cases. I presided over the Grand Jury and was head of the Bomb and Arson unit. In 2011, I was honored with the Circuit Attorney “Trial Star” for winning every jury trial I tried that year.

Super Lawyers Magazine has distinguished me a Rising Star in the field of product liability litigation. I try to give back to community when I can. I started the Downtown Neighborhood Watch Group and raise money for Multiple Sclerosis. I have been named National Multiple Sclerosis Corporate Achiever for my fund raising efforts.

Call AJ, Your St. Louis Accident Injury Attorney. Ryan
I always knew I wanted to be a personal injury attorney. My father, also a personal injury attorney, talked about the gratifying and fulfilling moments helping injured clients in times of need.
About Me: Ryan Bruning
I started this path by attending DeSmet Jesuit High School, where I played football and ran track. I then attended college at the University of Missouri-Columbia, and after Mizzou, I began law school at Saint Louis University. It was during this time that I solidified my desire to be the champion to those in need against large insurance companies. During law school I worked with my dad while he was a partner at Leritz, Plunkert and Bruning. There I learned the basics of the legal system from well-established and experienced attorneys.
St. Louis MO Personal Injury Lawyer
I directly assisted with several large jury trials, conducted numerous hearings and mediations, and, in the end, helped many clients see favorable results. During my time in law school, I also wanted to gain other experiences to enhance my legal education, and so I interned at the St. Louis City Circuit Attorney’s Office and worked at the Saint Louis University Defense Clinic, where I was nominated as Clinic Student of the Year. Although these positions were gratifying and helped in gaining trial experience, I ultimately decided that personal injury law is where I belong. I broke away from my father’s firm and joined the Page Law Firm in January of 2011, where I was able to focus primarily on serious injury and death cases. I used my experience in the courtroom and knowledge in representing injured clients to assist hundreds of individuals in Missouri and Illinois to rightful compensation against those who had done them wrong.
