Meyers, Flowers, Bruno, McPhedran & Herrmann Attorney Backgrounds:
Ted Meyers, of Meyers & Flowers, LLC., is a fourth-generation lawyer who focuses on personal injury, wrongful death, business transactions, and estate planning. He is known as a skilled attorney who is dedicated to protecting his clients’ settlements by addressing the many issues surrounding long-term guardianship and tax liability.
Peter Flowers, a nationally renowned plaintiff’s attorney of Meyers & Flowers, LLC., has focused his career on cases involving medical malpractice and catastrophic injuries due to workplace injuries, automobile accidents and defective products. He has negotiated or won several hundred-million and billion dollar settlements in medical device and pharmaceutical liability cases.
Klint Bruno, of The Bruno Law Firm, has spent his career focusing on complex financial and multi-party litigation and class action lawsuits. Before forming his own firm in 2012, he was a partner in a nationally renowned firm and handled cases in dozens of different state and federal courts, including a victory in a class action case that ended up before the United States Supreme Court. Klint has been responsible for recovering hundreds of millions of dollars for his clients.
Jim McPhedran has dedicated his career to working for the residents of the Illinois Valley. For more than three decades, he was part of the distinguished Anthony C. Raccuglia & Associates team before joining Meyers, Flowers, Bruno, McPhedran & Herrmann. His work on personal injury, workers’ compensation and accident law cases has resulted in several record-breaking cases in million-dollar verdicts and settlements. He continues to serve as the city attorney of LaSalle, Illinois.
Patrick Herrmann recently retired after a 30-year career with Bureau County serving first as an Assistant State’s Attorney and then as the State’s Attorney for 16 years. He has tried nearly 200 cases to verdict taking great pride in predicting a probable outcome and then obtaining that result on behalf of the victim and the state. It is this experience Pat wishes to continue in representing injured parties and civil cases.
Craig D. Brown, a former Cook County prosecutor, fought for victims of violent crimes. His experience proved insightful, as he recognized the importance of representing people in need of justice and the devastating effects crime has on victims. As a personal injury trial lawyer and partner at Meyers & Flowers LLC., he continues to use that perspective in his practice, representing clients who have been the victims of severe traumatic injuries, wrongful death, product liability and medical negligence.
Ryan P. Theriault, of Meyers & Flowers LLC., began practicing as a trial attorney to pursue his passion of helping those who have been harmed by others. He is dedicated to fighting for his clients while also educating them about the legal process. Prior to practicing law, he worked for a Chicago-area police department, which led to a special interest in representing public safety officers who have been injured as a result of their service to others. Ryan has been recognized by his alma mater for his accomplishments in the legal field and also named as one of the Nation’s Top 100 Trial Lawyers and Injured Workers’ Attorneys.
With a seasoned team of some of Illinois’ best trial attorneys, we have prosecuted cases in courtrooms on both local and national levels. Our attorneys bring a wealth of experience in civil litigation from personal and workplace injury cases, commercial disputes, medical malpractice, nursing home and sexual abuse, train derailments, car and trucking accident suits to more complex proceedings including wrongful death, complex securities and financial litigation as well as a range of consumer-related product liability cases.
“After spending more than 30 years in the Bureau County’s State’s Attorney’s office, it was natural for me to want to continue to work for the people of Illinois Valley,” said Herrmann, Partner of Meyers, Flowers, Bruno, McPhedran & Herrmann. “They are my neighbors and friends and I am deeply committed to providing the people with the best legal counsel and representation possible. I believe aligning my experience with Ted Meyers, Peter Flowers and Klint Bruno will provide our community with the best line of defense and resources necessary to protect their interests.”
Our partners are dedicated to obtaining full and just compensation for their clients. Our long history of experience in the complex prosecution of well-funded corporate adversaries has resulted in several multi-million and billion dollar settlements. Renowned as top trial attorneys, we often are contacted by other lawyers to take the lead in national litigation as well as spearhead other complex cases and multi-plaintiff suits.
“Being able to return to this community and use the skills I’ve developed in representing people throughout the country is a privilege for me, because I grew up with these people and this is home for me,” said Bruno, Partner of Meyers, Flowers, Bruno, McPhedran & Herrmann. “The breadth of legal services we will be able to provide is extensive, but more important, the depth and quality of experience this team can offer in helping local families and businesses is unrivaled.”
