Serving Clients in the Southern Illinois and St. Louis areas for Years
Brady was born in Alton, Illinois, and has lived in the St. Louis metropolitan area most of his life.
Brady graduated magna cum laude from Southern Illinois University School of Law where he served as the articles editor for the law journal and clerked for Judge Catherine D. Perry, Chief Judge for the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri.
After law school, Brady immediately went to work as a trial lawyer for some of St. Louis’ preeminent civil litigation firms. During that time, Brady litigated numerous cases and was responsible for managing litigation on behalf of a Fortune 100 Company in both Illinois and Missouri.
Brady’s skills inside and outside of the courtroom have resulted in countless favorable results for his clients. Most recently, Brady served as third chair in the James Reef v. Georgia Pacific LLC matter in Madison County, Illinois. This case was a multi-million dollar toxic exposure case involving experts and witnesses around the country. Again, Brady assisted in obtaining a favorable verdict for his client.
Brady has also argued and prevailed in Courts throughout Illinois and Missouri. Notably, Brady garnered a favorable ruling for his client on an issue of first impression in Missouri preventing his client’s employer from terminating him during his workers’ compensation sick leave leading to a multi-million dollar settlement for his client.
From his deep experience with civil defense strategies and insurance tactics to minimize claims, Brady knows how to get his personal injury clients the best possible settlement for their situation. His time spend in court arguing for those big corporations now gives him special insight to successfully arguing against them on behalf of his clients. As a founding member of Hipskind & McAninch, LLC, Brady focuses his practice on representing individuals involved in business disputes, those injured by the tortious acts of others, including cases such as catastrophic personal injury, wrongful death, and products liability, including pharmaceutical and medical devices.
