Hi. I'm Terry Crouppen and I would like to welcome you to Brown and Crouppen. First of
all, let me tell you a little bit about Brown and Crouppen. Today, after several years of
steady growth, we are a law firm of almost 50 people, people who come to work for one
reason, and that is to help you. Our main offices take up a whole floor of the Laclede
Gas Building in downtown St. Louis plus we have satellite offices all over the metropolitan
area. Our offices are filled with all sorts of high-tech equipment, from computers to
high-speed word processes and printers, all of it to do one thing: To serve you better.
Today, we feel we are just about the right size: Big enough to have the legal and financial
resources to fight the big insurance companies, but small enough to be able to treat our clients
as people, as individuals, as friends.
But before I go any further, I would like to introduce a man who has been my partner
for almost 15 years, but more importantly, my friend, Ron Brown.
Hi folks. I'm Ron Brown. I'm the Brown in Brown and Crouppen. Terry and I are proud
that our names have become associated with quality legal services in the metropolitan
St. Louis area for years. I welcome you to Brown and Crouppen, and I'm honored you chose
us to be your lawyers. We'll I'll let Terry continue. I hope to meet you in person real
Thanks Ron. Okay folks, now lets talk about what brought you to Brown and Crouppen. Your
personal injury. First of all, let me give you a brief idea how your case will proceed
from here. Today, a lawyer will interview you to get all the important information about
your money problems. From this information, we will then be able to advise you as to what
options you have, and what option is best for you. After the interview, you will be
given some papers to take home and fill out, but don't worry. We will give you careful
instructions on what to do, and if you need help, we are always here. After you return
this information, our experienced staff will prepare a comprehensive petition, setting
out your case to the bankruptcy court. After you sign it, we will file it. This means that
your money problems are now well on their way to being solved. By the way, once it is
filed, stop dealing with your creditors over the phone. If they call, just give them our
number. We are used to handling them, and we will now be able to stop those harassing
phone calls once and for all.
About 30 days after the petition is filed, one of our lawyers will take you to a meeting
at the bankruptcy, where a bankruptcy trustee will help us more your case along. Don't worry
about this meeting. We will be there with you guiding you every step of the way. Once
this stage of your case is completed, you are almost home.
During the few months your case is pending, you will receive legal papers from the court
or from your creditors. Keep these papers in a safe place, but understand we get copies
of the same information. We know all about them and what to do with them. You don't need
to call us. We will handle them. If we can't, I promise you we will call you and solve any
problem as quickly as possible, so don't worry.
Since our people are very good at what they do, it is unusual that you will ever need
to call us. You have been upset about these problems long enough, so let us worry about
them for a while. But if you do need to call, one of our experienced paralegals will help
At Brown and Crouppen, our paralegals have worked on about every money problem imagineable.
With the backup of our attorneys, you will be in very good hands. I want you to know
that your legal team is very experienced in handling cases just like yours. Your legal
team has been instructed to bother you as little as they have to. Our goal is to work
in the background as much as possible, so don't be upset if you don't hear from us.
It just means that your case is proceeding normally without any problems, and we don't
want to bother you. Remember, you don't need to call us to check on your case. Just sit
back, get yourself feeling better, and leave everything to us. It is our job. We will take
care of you, I promise.
Oh, and please, let us know if you ever change phone numbers or addresses.
Well, since you are now going to be a part of our Brown and Crouppen family, let me briefly
tell you about the other services we can help you with, either now or in the future. Our
law firm handles all types of injury cases, from car accident injuries, to injuries caused
by defectively-made products, chemicals, or drugs. Our lawyers work for people hurt in
falls, people hurt working in railroads and on the rivers. For years, our lawyers have
helped children and adults injured by medical malpractice or the carelessness of doctors
or hospitals. If you or someone you care about is ever hurt because of someone else's carelessness,
we are here now and always will be to do everything in our power to stand next to you, to give
you the help you need.
Well, I've talked too long as usual. I want to say again welcome to Brown and Crouppen.
Remember, you are now surrounded by men and women who are dedicated to helping you. You
are welcome guests. Good bye and take care.
