We Utilize The Best Approach To The Practice Of Law And Maximize The Power Of Our Partnerships

A caring, helpful approach to legal services is worth little when your lawyer doesn’t possess the skills and hands-on experience to resolve your legal problem. And the likelihood of having your legal challenge resolved successfully, quickly and cost-effectively is significantly diminished when your attorney fails to incorporate your input, answer your questions along the way and put you at ease.

At the St. Louis law firm of Uthoff, Graeber, Bobinette & Blanke (UGBB), we provide a combination of experience, teamwork and interactive client relationships to forge partnerships that achieve positive results — and we have done so for over 40 years. Contact our St. Louis lawyers to schedule your initial consultation.

A Team Approach To Legal Practice

We have found that the best legal strategies are derived from open and honest communication with our clients in conjunction with our legal know-how. The back-and-forth exchange of ideas allows our attorneys to fully understand all the factors that affect our clients’ legal issues and provide the personal attention each case deserves.

At UGBB the client is an integral part of the team — i.e., a member of the partnership. We seek to maximize our partnerships along with the courts and any retained experts so that our clients can enjoy the full reach and value of our legal work at a sensible cost structure. In this spirit, UGBB trademarked its motto MAXIMIZING THE POWER OF PARTNERSHIPS™.

UGBB believes in the value of teamwork, not only with our clients, but between each of our lawyers as well. Our attorneys constantly tap each other’s knowledge and strengths across complementary practice areas to better serve the interests of our clients. One skillful attorney is good. A team of skillful lawyers is better. Clients continually come back to us and refer us to others because we handle a wide variety of practice areas, and we have handled hundreds of cases in each area.
