Ron made it a practice to hire attorneys with the skill to routinely champion victims against multibillion dollar insurance companies, Fortune 100 companies and defense lawyers from St. Louis and Chicago. In 2011, Ron partnered with Todd Bresney.

Todd Bresney is a trial lawyer with 19 years of experience. He started his legal career working for insurance clients in Chicago. Like his partner, he has broken record verdicts in central Illinois.
