Meet Our Attorneys


With more than 35 years of experience as a trial lawyer, Anthony Bruning is dedicated to standing up for the everyday people who are struggling to get the help they need after suffering injuries in a serious accident. He has a deep dedication to the people of St. Louis, as he was born and raised here, received his bachelor’s from the University of Missouri, and graduated from St. Louis University School of Law. With well over 100 jury verdicts under his belt, including nine jury verdicts of more than $1 million, Anthony Bruning is a respected champion for the rights of injured people throughout Missouri and Illinois.


Inspired by the appreciation clients always showed for his father growing up, A.J. Bruning feels that he was “born and raised” to be a strong advocate for injured people. He followed in his father’s footsteps at the University of Missouri and St. Louis University School of Law. Then he started his legal career in the St. Louis Circuit Attorney’s Office representing victims of crime, before moving into private practice to represent personal injury victims. A.J. Bruning’s dedication to the people of St. Louis shines through both in his work at the firm and in the community.


It would be an understatement to say the desire to help injured people runs in the Bruning family, according to Ryan Bruning. He, too, was inspired by his father’s legacy and decided to pursue a career in personal injury law via the University of Missouri-Columbia and St. Louis University School of Law. Ryan Bruning is motivated by his sense of compassion for those who have had their lives turned upside down due to a serious injury or a loved one’s wrongful death. He believes that every client deserves an attorney who is a dedicated advocate and an excellent communicator.


There is nothing I love more than winning a case for my client. Over the last eighteen years, I’ve been fortunate to work with all types of people on all types of lawsuits. The one thing I never get tired of is helping someone achieve a just and fair outcome, whether that happens in a courtroom or a conference room.

After college, I went straight to law school to pursue my dream of being an attorney. I graduated from the University of Illinois College of Law, where I earned several awards for trial advocacy. After returning home to St. Louis, I’ve spent the last 18 years advocating for every kind of client—from individuals to Fortune 50 companies. I’ve been recognized by Benchmark Litigation magazine, the St. Louis Business Journal, Missouri Lawyers’ Weekly and Missouri & Kansas Superlawyers Magazine for my trial work.


Patrick’s approach to each case is the same; be proactive not reactive. He works tirelessly to ensure the rights of his clients are properly and timely enforced. Patrick focuses on each case so that he knows every detail. This results in aggressive handling of every case, maximizing results and helping Patrick’s clients receive the recovery they deserve.
