SULLIVAN, BAUTISTA, MORGAN, ALLEN & CHRONIC L.L.C., was recently founded by a tight-knit team of dedicated and ambitious attorneys. Robert Sullivan, a former partner at the prestigious firm Langdon & Emison, left to join forces with Jose Bautista, a successful lawyer with Davis, Bethune & Jones. These leading attorneys partnered with three of the most promising lawyers in the region: Daniel Allen, Timothy Morgan and George “Jed” Chronic II, also from Langdon & Emison.

Record of Success

Their track record of success in complex civil litigation, with particular emphasis on personal injury, wrongful death, products liability, railroad crossing accidents and semi-truck accidents has caught the attention of the legal community. The attorneys of Sullivan, Bautista, Morgan, Allen & Chronic L.L.C., have collectively handled cases involving verdicts and settlements totaling more than $100 million, including recent products liability verdicts of $16.9 million against Ford Motor Company and $1.4 million against Ryder TRS. “These lawyers have been exposed to and have succeeded against the largest law firms and corporations in the nation during their careers. They’re used to the pressure that comes with big-time cases,” says Sly James, a prominent Kansas City trial lawyer. Opposing counsel agrees: “I have defended several cases against these guys and they will leave no stone unturned,” says David Dick, a partner at Thompson Coburn in St. Louis.

Public Kudos

US Lawyers Weekly, Missouri Lawyers Weekly, Bloomberg News, USA Today and Trial magazine have recognized the firm members’ legal successes. Most recently, Bautista and Sullivan were respectively elected as the chair and vice-chair of the Railroad Committee of the American Association for Justice.
