Years Of Combined Experience
Bruntrager & Billings, P.C. was founded in 1954 by Raymond A. Bruntrager, Sr. The foundation mantra was simple: treat clients with respect and perform the legal work that was promised in return for a fair fee.
When Bruntrager, Sr. first opened his firm, he was known primarily as a criminal defense attorney. Skilled in the courtroom, he won an acquittal for physician under a multi-count federal indictment for selling prescriptions—an extremely rare feat. Bruntrager, Sr. further solidified his reputation as an experienced litigator by winning a not-guilty verdict in a federal bank robbery case.
In 1974, Bruntrager’s son, Raymond A. Bruntrager, Jr., joined his father’s practice, and the firm’s name was changed to Bruntrager & Bruntrager. The untimely death of the younger Bruntrager, in 1979, brought about additional changes to the firm. Bruntrager’s son-in-law Charles H. Billings joined the practice, and the firm’s name was changed to Bruntrager & Billings. The firm’s current six partners are a combination of brothers, in-laws, Charles’ son, Charlie, and Neil’s son, Jonathan.
Sadly, in late 2014, Raymond A. Bruntrager, Sr. passed away. His life and accomplishments were celebrated in a St. Louis Post-Dispatch article. Click “Read More” below to view the full article.
