Client Reviews & Testimonials
This devastated family needed a Hero and we found several at Strong-Garner-Bauer
3:30 am, our almost 38 year old son, with 5 dependent children and a wife, was admitted to the hospital with a serious sinus infection. By 8:30am his wife could no longer read or understand his text because they were so garbled, she could not understand what he was trying to say. The Nurse called the Doctor and told him. But he never came up to see our son. Late that evening they finally did a MRI and could see the infection had broke through to the brain. They operated immediately.
Too late, the damage was done. The call for a Hero went out that morning but none came. John had to endure a total of 3 brain surgeries, a full-blown stroke on his dominant side. He was an artist, a guitar player and would climb to the highest part of the monkey bars with his children but never again. He spent 43 days in NICU. 20 days in physical therapy and will never be the way he was. He had to learn to walk and talk all over again.
Another call for a hero went out. But that call was answered. It was answered by SGB. They came fully armed, locked and loaded and ready for the fight. They went into the battle and came out victorious, with enough for John to live out hie life with dignity.
We will sing your Praises around the campfire forever. We thank you all.
A great experience!!
Our lawyer was Grant Rahmeyer. He was wonderful. My daughter was in a car accident and health insurance did not want to pay. Grant took care of all our concerns and kept us informed throughout. I would definitely recommend him and this law firm if you need a good lawyer!!
Thank you again for all you and your team did in the name of justice.
I wanted to take a moment to thank you for all your work on the case regarding my grandmother Virginia Jenkins. It is with a grateful heart that I write you for accepting this case. Not only for accepting it, but seeing it through to justice being served and acceptance of responsibility by the facility for their negligent actions.
All the efforts, attempting to positively impact the future care of others within this health care facility, have been worth the hours of diligent work to accomplish the task. My grandmother would be proud to know that her death was not in vain.
Thank you again for all you and your team did in the name of justice.
They went to bat for me and my family – and then some!
In July of 2011 I was in a horrific accident. There were 2 commercial vehicles involved – one was a tractor/trailer/semi. I was not at fault at all, It was pretty much my worst nightmare – driving home from work – minding my own business – and whack!!!!! I was almost killed. My life, and my family’s world was instantly turned upside down. Within a week, a family member recommended that we hire SGB, and we are so thankful that we did. They immediately put an entire team on my case. 2 attorneys, a nurse paralegal, a paralegal, investigators, experts, accident reconstructionists – plus all the support staff they have to help work on a case like mine. They kept in constant contact with us and advised my family how to handle so many issues, as they arose. I was in the hospital for 2 months and in rehab for literally years. There were so many bills. We got frequent updates on my case from SGB and whenever we called them to update them on my condition or to ask questions, they always knew what was going on with my case and someone on the team was always available. They are the true experts at what they do – and they do not advertise (because they are the best) – DO NOT hire a lawyer because you see them on T.V.!!!!! By SGB taking so much weight off our family, I was able to focus 100% on recovering the best I could from my injuries. One of the first things Steve and Neil told me from the start, was for me to focus on getting better, and they would take care of everything else on the legal end. And they did. I can’t thank them enough for all they did. Not just obtaining an outstanding conclusion to my case, but for the caring and kindness the entire team/firm showed me and my family, through-out the entire legal process. They went to bat for me and my family – and then some. Thank-you SGB.
I have and will highly recommend them to friends and family that need help.
After the sudden death of my husband, several family friends felt I needed to ask questions about the healthcare he received and what really happened. I was given the number for the law firm, Strong Garner and Bauer. Prior to making that phone call I had not heard of the firm, but I can tell you that my families experience with these individuals was amazing. I was dealing with the loss of my husband, my children with the loss of their father, and so needed a firm we could depend on. They put an entire team on our case: 2 lawyers, a nurse paralegal, and a paralegal, plus all the support staff. Their work ethic was amazing, never leaving anything to question. Neil and his team were not only driven to get answers, but they were also very compassionate about what we were going through. They went above and beyond, every step of the process and kept us up to date throughout the case. Steve, Neil and their entire team wanted to really learn about my husband. I felt like before it was all over, they actually knew him and his character. They not only were driven to get answers, but in the meantime they learned and understood the man that they were fighting for. SGB truly cares about their clients, goes above and beyond to fight for your rights, and they made my family feel like a part of the Strong-Garner-Bauer family. I have and will highly recommend them to friends and family that need help. God Bless this team of selfless, devoted professionals, for restoring my families trust in people.
God lead us to the best!
Thank you. I feel God lead us to the best. I will always know where to start if I need an attorney again or if anyone ever asks about one. You and your office are awesome. Thank for all your time and the way you handled all of this.

Great efforts and warm caring hearts.
I would like to give SGB a very hearty thank you for fighting through this journey with me and my family……Your entire team made it as easy as possible for me and my family, even when I am sure I seemed a little impossible. I have never worked with a more professional group……..thank you for your great efforts and warm caring hearts.

You have made my wife and I feel like family.
Once again thank you for all you have done. You have made my wife and I feel like family. I don’t know of any other outfit or person we could say that about.

We are forever in your debt.
We could never express the amount of gratitude we have for you and your firm and the impact you have had on our lives. I’m sure you get thank you notes all the time but we wanted to be sure you knew that we understand the sacrifice you made for us. Although there were definite obstacles and risks (that really affected you the most) you never gave anything but your best efforts, we recognize that and are grateful. We understand that we never reached the part of the trial that you worked so hard far, you are so appreciated. We are humbled by the sincerity and compassion you have to us and it will never forgotten. You’re a group of people that we are honored to have worked with and we hope you’ll allow us to call you friends.
We know a settlement was let down of sorts, thank you for telling us it’s okay. We were told by many that we were lucky to have you, it wasn’t luck, it was a blessing. Definitely in our business life but more so in our personal lives. We knew nothing about the legal process nor the law and we still know very little, but we have learned a lot from you about dedication, loyalty, putting others first, persistence, patience and modesty. Again our deepest gratitude to your firm, you deserve every recognition and award and so much more. You will always have our loyalty, our hearts and our appreciation! We can’t thank you enough for taking a really bad time in our lives and transforming it into memories that are filled with laughter, team work, and the knowledge that you were always on our side, no matter what the outcome. As we discussed the settlement possibilities, you said not to worry about you, if it’s any consolation, know that we are forever in your debt.

Neil Chanter and Staff treated me with the utmost respect, truly thinking of my well being and what I would need to live my life with the personal injuries I received in a head on collision with a semi-trailer truck.
Their professional team work and forthright honesty helped me achieve the goal I had requested. I highly recommend this law firm to anyone and everyone, whatever the injury would be. They will answer your questions honestly and completely.
Strong-Garner-Bauer’s strength turned my life around!
From the initial consultation to the judgment, the team at Strong-Garner-Bauer made me feel confident that my case was handled with my best interests in mind by exhibiting the highest degree of care, professionalism and expertise. When faced with my personal tragedy, Strong-Garner-Bauer’s strength turned my life around.

We are forever grateful.
I was the victim of medical malpractice. A friend gave us the name of several attorneys including Steve Garner with Strong-Garner-Bauer. After talking with a few and deciding to go with Mr. Garner, we were blessed beyond all our expectations. The entire staff was wonderful – professional, dedicated, hard-working, compassionate regarding our situation and there for us every time we had a question. After winning our case at trial, in a county known for difficulties in trying malpractice cases, we then had to fight to retain our verdict on appeal. Going all the way to the Missouri Supreme Court we ultimately won when our verdict was upheld. Mr. Garner and his team fought for us every step of the way (when many others would have quit, in our opinion). God bless each one of you for your tireless efforts on our behalf. We are forever grateful.

Professional, Caring, Ethical and Tough
SGB is a Law Firm that really cares about their clients. That is unusual in the legal profession. They will go to bat for your case and they win! They are not just your attorneys, paralegals and nurses because they become your friends as well. Everyone needs someone they can count on when an accident occurs. I would recommend them to anyone who needs help. SGB is the best of the best in legal representation. Professional, Caring, Ethical and Tough when it counts. They won my case and gave me my independence back.
I could not be happier with the firm’s work!
After I was the victim of insurance bad faith and left personally exposed to a massive loss, the guys at SGB brought an insurance bad faith claim for me and made the insurance company step up to the plate – I could not be happier with the firm’s work, their professionalism and for the compassion they showed during the case. The result they ultimately obtained for me was excellent.
Strong-Garner-Bauer Law Firm exceeded our expectations and truly changed our lives.

Professional and Polite
I recently had the opportunity to serve on a jury for a case in which Mr. Steven Garner and Mr. Chandler Gregg represented a client. I was very impressed with the manner in which they presented themselves and their client. The case ran for a week, and they were as patient on day five as they were at the beginning. The material they offered to the jury was well researched and presented in a calm and confident manner. Their interaction with the client was calm and assuring. In several instances the defense attorneys actually asked to borrow documents for their own arguments; Mr. Garner and Mr. Chandler were professional and polite regarding those requests. Your client was consistently represented in a respectful manner throughout the length of the trial. It was a pleasure to see your company’s work ethic in action and I would highly recommend you to anyone who is in need of a personal injury attorney in the future. Thank you for your dedication to excellence.
We appreciate what your firm and especially you have done for me and my family.
I just wanted to let you know again how much we appreciate what your firm and especially you have done for me and my family. Your preparation, professionalism, and ability to present your case contrasted very favorably to most of the lawyers I have observed. Without your help we would have been at the mercy of the insurance companies and would have had to settle on their terms. Best of luck in the future and I will definitely recommend your firm to anyone I know in need of legal representation.
