Baker Sterchi Cowden & Rice LLC

Lawyers like words. They throw them around a lot, but in truth, words are central to our profession; they tell the story of a case, they light up the facts.

Our firm has some choice words that we believe tell our story, and we do not use them lightly. The businesses that have partnered with us for nearly 40 years know that the words efficient, dedicated, superior service and cost consciousness are not empty platitudes when used to describe our legal services.

Recognized nationally in civil defense litigation, Baker Sterchi is a Midwest firm founded in 1982. Having grown substantially, the firm’s overarching philosophy has remained constant: Obtain the most favorable results possible for clients as quickly as possible at a reasonable cost.

You will be hard-pressed to find a litigation defense firm in the Midwest with as extensive a case history as ours. With over 70 lawyers and a substantial staff of litigation paralegals and technical specialists, the types of cases we handle rival much larger firms with a “litigation” department. Centrally located in Missouri, Illinois and Kansas, our attorneys practice throughout the United States serving national, regional and local companies and professionals in a variety of industries and businesses.
