About This Firm

The Onder Law Firm is truly a "local" firm with deep roots in the St. Louis community. Each of the firm's attorneys, paralegals, and staff were born and raised in the St. Louis Metropolitan area, giving the firm a "home field" advantage. Although deeply entrenched in the St. Louis legal community, the firm is equally at home out of state. Firms throughout the nation seek the firm's experience and expertise on complex litigation in specialty areas, such as medical malpractice, product liability claims and cases involving window covering products.

St. Louis is truly a "small town." The St. Louis community is comprised of very tight knit medical and legal communities, into which the firm and its members are deeply rooted. One of the firm's partners serves as the prosecuting attorney for the City of Brentwood, a powerful municipality in the St. Louis Metropolitan area. Another of of the firm's partners is a third generation attorney, whose grandfather was a founding director of multiple charitable trusts and foundations still serving the St. Louis community. Yet another attorney at the firm is a retired St. Louis County judge, having served as a member of the bench for over 20 years, and remains quite active in the legal community. The father of another is also a retired member of the bench, from a long established legal family in the St. Louis community.

The firm's medical contacts run equally deep. Essential to the effective presentation of evidence in any injury or death claim is the medical testimony presented. The firm's ties to the St. Louis medical community are second to none. The great grandfather of one of our attorneys is former chief of staff at a major St. Louis medical center; another attorney's father is past president of the Missouri Association of Osteopathic Physicians and head of the Department of Family Practice at another medical center. The great grandfather of one attorney was a graduate of the first dental school class at St. Louis University in 1905.

These longstanding roots in the St. Louis legal and medical communities place the firm in a unique and enviable position. In fact, the firm's quality has been recognized by its peers, as evidence by its AV rating in the Martindale-Hubbell directory. The directory is a system whereby lawyers evaluate the accomplishments and skill of other lawyers with the AV distinction being bestowed upon less than 10% of lawyers in the St. Louis legal community.

About Client Rating
About Peer Rating

Welcome to Martindale-Hubbell® Client Review, a new ratings service that allows you to view and provide feedback on a lawyer or law firm on service and relationship qualities such as Communication Ability, Responsiveness, Quality of Service, and Value for Money.

Determining a Rating

The Client Review Rating is determined through aggregation of validated responses. This compilation of Client Reviews translates to a numerical rating and associate descriptive term on a scale of 1 -5. 1 being lowest as "Rated" and 5 being highest as "Preeminent".

  • 4.5-5.0 Preeminent
  • 3.0-4.4 Distinguished
  • 1-2.9 Rated

Martindale-Hubbell uses a third-party resource to validate that the respondent is a living person, but cannot confirm the lawyer/client relationship, which in many cases is confidential. Clients must affirm that they are a client of the lawyer or firm identified for review at the time of the completed Client Review.

The Reviewers

Those who complete Client Reviews are clients of law firms who hired a lawyer within the last year, whose matter is not pending, and want to share their experience of that lawyer or law firm with other potential clients. Reviewers can be of any type from in-house counsel, corporate executives, small business owners to private individuals, and even sometimes another lawyer in a different jurisdiction.


Client Reviews are anonymous and reviewers' identities are not published; however a summary of basic demographics will be part of the display of responses.

Why do we collect demographics as part of the review?

Those who are researching a lawyer or law firm like to see that there are other clients who might be "like them". This is valuable information contributing to the decision-making process of hiring a lawyer.

Martindale-Hubbell's role

Martindale-Hubbell facilitates the process of Client Review by gathering responses, validating them and aggregating results for display online. The content of the responses are entirely from reviewers, the clients of the firm or lawyer.

It is important to note that Martindale-Hubbell does not undertake to develop Client Reviews for all firms and lawyers. Therefore, the fact that a firm or lawyer has not been reviewed should not be construed unfavorably. Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome and Martindale-Hubbell accepts no responsibility for the content or accuracy of any review over which Martindale-Hubbell exercises no editorial review or control.
