Over the decades, Padberg & Corrigan has developed a strong presence for personal injury representation in the southeast counties of Missouri. A large number of our injured clients come from this beautiful part of our state. We have strong relationships with the courts and the many fine law firms and lawyers in Ste Genevieve, Cape Girardeau, Scott, New Madrid, Dunklin, Bollinger & Stoddard Counties.
We get down there often and always enjoy some of the little known aspects of this area of Missouri. As October is upon us, I want to encourage any of you looking for a pleasant fall trip to consider just a few of many Southeast Missouri destinations:
