Helping Injured People Secure Maximum Compensation

When someone else’s negligence or wrongdoing causes a serious injury, you have the right to seek compensation for medical expenses, property damage, pain and suffering, and other damages. At Donner Applewhite, our attorneys are experienced at maximizing recovery for people hurt in serious motor vehicle accidents, by dangerous or defective products, or in falls on dangerous property.

Protecting Consumer Rights In Missouri

As a consumer, you have rights guaranteed by Missouri and federal law. However, it is largely up to you to enforce those rights if you have been injured by a defective product, ripped off by a business or harassed by a debt collector. The lawyers of Donner Applewhite use their extensive knowledge of consumer protection law to hold businesses accountable for their actions and pursue fair compensation for their clients.


Free Initial Consultations

Donner Applewhite offers free initial consultations with no obligation and takes almost all of its cases solely on a contingency fee basis. This means that there is no upfront cost as the attorneys’ fees are paid by the defendants in a verdict or settlement. This reduces the risk to plaintiffs and makes it easier to pursue a rightful claim.

To schedule an appointment with one of our firm’s attorneys, please call 314-656-8544, or send an email. Our firm is located in downtown St. Louis and serves clients throughout St. Louis County. Russian translation services are available.

Best Injury Lawyer Ever!

After fighting a case for more than a year, I did not know where to go. I reviewed AVVO and found amazing reviews for him; I am so glad that I did. I immediately spoke with Mr. Donner, and he provided an actual plan with how we were to proceed. He kept in touch, and I settled my case for about 7 times the amount that my prior lawyer told me that he could settle it for. I am extremely grateful for Mr. Donner and his firm. They are the best!


The best of the best!

Mr. Donner got me a much larger reward than I expected. He is such a nice guy, but more importantly, he turned a really awful situation and injury into a compensation that was just simply unexpected. If myself, my family, my friends, or anyone I know is ever injured in an accident-I would not just say that Mr. Donner is recommended, he is required!!!!

He is gifted and am 100% confident that your situation will be handled professionally and resolved the best way that it can with your interests above anyone in mind. More than a lawyer, I am proud to call Steve my friend. How many people can say that about an attorney that handled their case?


Lawyer for Life

Steve settled all of my medical bills that I had and I could not be happier with this result. Steve will be direct and straight with you, and he will not make any false promises. He will tell you exactly what to expect from your case and will tell you exactly how to make the most of your case. I would highly recommend him to anyone. He is such a great attorney who is very aggressive and the type that you want in your corner for any legal matter. He will be my lawyer for life! settle it for.


Look No Further

I was at my wit’s end, trying to decipher forms, letters and telephone calls that didn’t offer explanation or solutions . Steven Donner’s professionalism is highly impressive. He responded to my phone call promptly, and his knowledge and diligence resulted in a solid resolution of an annoying dispute. I would recommend Steven Donner to anyone who wants a lawyer that treats his clients with respect and aggressively defends their rights.
