St. Louis Personal Injury Lawyer Geoff Meyerkord has dedicated his professional career to advocating on behalf of victims and families who have suffered harm through no fault of their own. In part because of his extensive experience in settlement negotiation and litigation, Attorney Meyerkord has helped his firm – Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC – recover more than $350 million in compensation for clients. His achievements have earned him a number of professional awards and respect throughout the local and legal communities. Just recently, Geoff was elected to serve on the Board of Governors for the Missouri Association of Trial Attorneys.
The Missouri Association of Trial Attorneys (MATA) is a statewide association that has been protecting the rights of Missouri residents since 1951. The organization brings together lawyers throughout the state to protect the rights of injured victims and the civil justice and workers’ compensation systems. MATA members work collectively to advocate on behalf of victims and families, ensure accountability, and address injustices. As a member of the Board of Governors, Geoff Meyerkord plays a significant role in helping promote MATA’s mission. The Board of Governors consists of roughly 116 attorneys statewide.
Attorney Meyerkord’s role with MATA speaks volumes about his passion for the art of law and for protecting the rights of those who have suffered preventable harm. America’s civil justice system provides the everyday individual the right to expose injustice and check the power of larger corporations. It also helps to promote change and protect public safety. In both his role with MATA and at Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC, Geoff works tirelessly to protect the injured and the system they must navigate in the pursuit of justice.
