.

This "LAWYER" is EXACTLY why people HATE ATTORNEYS. He was contacted in Summer 2011 on a referral from a reputable attorney in St Louis, Gretchen Myers. I sent her a copy of my complaint letter to the Missouri BAR to, hopefully, keep from EVER recommending this guy again.
John Grimm & The Limbaugh Firm was given the opportunity to represent a man in prison in Charleston who was injured, AT NO FAULT OF HIS OWN, while working at Missouri Vocational Enterprises (MVE). A job that he has held down for SEVERAL YEARS. This man is an EXCEPTIONAL prisoner and has been for decades. He does not violate the rules, and he works hard. He was severely injured when a poorly constructed cart fell over on top of him, crushing him beneath several hundred pounds (approx 500 - 800 pounds) of products. The cart had been reported as dangerous SEVERAL times in the past, and MVE never did anything to correct the cart to make it safe UNTIL he was taken by ambulance to the hospital. THEN they fixed the cart. He was NOT the only person to ever be injured by using this cart. Besides there being VIDEO EVIDENCE, there are also MANY reputable incarcerated AND NON-INCARCERATED personnel who witnessed the accident and ALL OF THEM concur that the victim was NOT AT FAULT. Mind you, we're talking men in prison who get up every day, go to work, follow the rules and go back to their home inside the walls. Not the kind of prisoners that you see stabbing each other and staff, like on TV.
The Limbaugh Firm sent an associate to the prison to meet with him. The victim explained his case and, above all, explained that INCARCERATED PEOPLE HAVE ONLY ONE YEAR/12 MONTHS TO FILE ANY CLAIM. The associate told him that The Limbaugh Firm WOULD take his case and that he would have a LETTER OF ENGAGEMENT sent to him upon his return to the office.
After SEVERAL months of emailing & calling to The Limbaugh Firm on behalf of this man who was injured with severe tissue damage to his waist, hip & thigh, walks with a walker now, AND ALSO RECENTLY WAS FIRED FROM MVE FOR BEING UNABLE TO WORK, asking them WHAT was taking so long? Did they read the facts of the case & other information that the victim took the time to type and send to them? Did they request the video evidence? Did they talk to ANY of the MANY witnesses? Can they get ANY pain treatment started for him? Have they even TALKED to the victim?? Did they TALK TO ANYONE?? Was it MONEY that was holding them up from doing something?? (They ASSURED me SEVERAL times, it WAS NOT about MONEY...)
Month after month I emailed & called, asking for a status on what was being done... They assured me time and time again that the LETTER OF ENGAGEMENT was to be sent within a few days!!
Well, on December 30th of 2011, after MONTHS of assuring us over & over again that something was happening "later this week" or "done by Christmas", Attorney John Grimm emailed me to let me know that they changed their minds and decided to not represent him.
In his email, he states: "Since you and I spoke, Chris and I have spent a considerable amount of time conducting research to see if this matter is one that we can justify handling on a contingent fee. I have attached one of the many cases we have reviewed. As you can see from this case, claims against prison officials are much more difficult than traditional personal injury claims. Rather than a simple claim based on the negligence of the defendant, a claim such as Joe's would be determined based on the Eighth Amendment's requirement that prison officials provide humane conditions of confinement. Specifically, we would be required to show that the defendants "were deliberately indifferent, or acted with reckless disregard, to inmate constitutional rights, health or safety."
Well, as my return email to them stated, they were ON THE MONEY when they referenced the 8th Amendment!! The MVE DID ACT INDIFFERENTLY WHEN THEY DIDN'T FIX THE CART AND ALLOWED SEVERAL PEOPLE TO BE INJURED WITH RECKLESS DISREGARD TO CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS, HEALTH, & SAFETY!!! They nailed it on the head!! That was EXACTLY why we came to them with this case!!
But c'mon... "Chris and I have spent a considerable amount of time conducting research"??? Really? Once again, did you read letter that he wrote? Did you see the video? Talk to MVE?? ANYTHING???
AND... Over & over & over again, I asked them, is it money? Is that what it would take to get them to do SOMETHING?? ANYTHING??? Well, in his OWN WORDS, he stated "to see if this matter is one that we can justify handling on a contingent fee." So, it IS about MONEY. Just start off telling me what the amount needed would be! THEY TREATED US AS IF THEY'RE BETTER THAN US BECAUSE THEY'RE ATTORNEY'S AND WE'RE NOT. I enjoy giving GREAT reviews, THIS ISN'T ONE OF THEM.
In conclusion, I didn't want to give this firm 1 star, they don't deserve it, make it a NEGATIVE ONE STAR RATING.
