President of Schlapprizzi Attorneys at Law, Donald L. Schlapprizzi is a trial lawyer. He was the lead trial lawyer in the longest jury trial in Missouri (9 months) arising out of one of the worst environmental disasters in United States history. He has tried over 300 jury trials, taken more than 60 cases to the Missouri Supreme Court, and State and Federal Courts of Appeal, and, on five separate occasions, his cases have resulted in Appellate opinions that have changed the law in Missouri.
Don has safeguarded the legal profession from the time he entered it, and aside from God and his family, the law is his love. He recognizes the blessings God has provided in his life and career, and he holds deep ties to his faith and concern for his community. As a Member of Legatus and Knights of the Holy Sepulchre he strives to live out his faith and serve the community well.
Craig Anthony Schlapprizzi, Vice President and trial lawyer at Schlapprizzi Attorneys at Law, contributed to 40% of the firm’s profits in 2014 and 2015. Just eight (8) months after his acceptance to the Missouri Bar in 2009 he obtained his first jury verdict, $150,000. Craig has successfully tried medical malpractice, premises liability, wrongful death and vehicular collision cases throughout Missouri in both state and federal courts. He is the youngest member on the Board of Governors for the Missouri Association of Trial Attorneys (MATA).
Craig has great devotion to his faith and esteem for the legal profession, and recognizes the need to protect both. Taking a strong stance in speaking engagements and community outreach, he opposed proposed legislative amendments which would permit politics to encroach on the Missouri judiciary. He has participated in the St. Louis the King Speaker Series where he discussed with parochial school children the “court room world.” Craig also is a Board Member of Friends of the Cathedral which serves to restore and maintain the Cathedral Basilica in St. Louis.
