Gray Ritter Graham attorneys Maurice Graham and Don Downing were recognized in December 2022 by Missouri Lawyers Weekly as among Missouri’s top 100 attorneys.

The publication honors what it considers Missouri’s top 30 attorneys in their respected practice areas, highlighting a different practice area and list of attorneys monthly. Each attorney on the 12 lists is designated a Missouri POWER 30 attorney.

In June 2022 Missouri Lawyers Weekly named Graham a Missouri POWER 30 attorney for Personal Injury Law.  Downing was named a POWER 30 attorney for Commercial & Consumer Litigation in August.

The publication’s editorial team further reviewed all the POWER 30 attorneys for 2022 to compile its inaugural MO POWER 100 list of attorneys. The MO POWER 100 attorneys, including Graham and Downing, were deemed the “best of the best” in Missouri, irrespective of practice areas.

Announcing Graham as MO POWER 100 attorney, Missouri Lawyers Weekly cited his long-standing leadership in and outside the legal community, as well as his legal accomplishments, including a $10.8 million verdict for the family of a woman who died during a heart procedure.

When recognizing Downing as a MO POWER 100 attorney, the publication noted his litigation successes on behalf of  U.S. farmers, including a $400 million settlement over crop damages involving dicamba and a $1.51 billion settlement for economic harm from genetically modified corn.

The choice of a lawyer is an important decision that should not be based solely on advertisements.
