Practice Areas

My name is Mike Sudekum.  I have been a personal injury and workers compensation lawyer for over twenty (20) years.  I am proud of and like what I do -  helping people exercise their rights and recover when they have suffered losses dues to the negligence of others.  I would be happy to talk with you about your case.
A little bit about me – I have worked at the same firm since I graduated from law school.  This firm, now Mandel, Mandel, Marsh, Sudekum & Sanger, has been representing individual and families for over 40 years.  I am a member of the executive committee of the Missouri Association of Trial Attorneys, an organization of over 1000 Missouri lawyers who represent clients in personal injury and workers compensation cases.  I went to law school at Mizzou.  I am licensed to practice law in Missouri and Illinois.
When you hire me to help with your case, my clients have the option to call, email or text me.  I prefer that they pick one at a time.  I look forward to helping you.
