Brian Russell and Nick Hergott Named 2019 Rising Stars by Super Lawyers

Meyerkord, Russell & Hergott is pleased to announce that Brian Russell and Nick Hergott have been selected to the 2019 Missouri & Kansas Rising Stars list by Super Lawyers.

Brian was recognized as a Personal Injury - General: Plaintiff Rising Star, and Nick was recognized as a Personal Injury - Medical Malpractice: Plaintiff Rising Star.

This is Brian’s fifth recognition by the organization and Nick’s fourth, which involves a multiphase selection process, including peer nominations along with independent research and evaluations. Most notably, this is an exclusive list as it acknowledges no more than 2.5 percent of attorneys in each state who are either 40 years of age or younger, or in practice for 10 years or less.

Brian was recognized for his work in Personal Injury – General Plaintiff law. He has been practicing law since 2010, partnering with his longtime friend, Matt Meyerkord, in 2012. Brian is passionate about making sure his clients are treated fairly and he is eager to fight for them when they’re treated unfairly. While the vast majority of cases are settled fairly, insurance companies are motivated to be fairer when they know someone tries cases. Brian has tried four cases in the past year, which is among the most for plaintiff’s lawyers in the Kansas City area.

Nick was recognized for his work in Personal Injury – Medical Malpractice Plaintiff law and Personal Injury – General Plaintiff law. Since 2010, he has been practicing law and continues to take pride in genuinely getting to know his clients. Ultimately, he finds fulfillment winning challenging jury trials for them time and time again. Since September of last year, Nick has tried three cases to verdict. In addition to serving his clients, Nick is on the KCMBA YLS Board of Directors and a senior member-at-large for KCMBA’s Solo & Small Firm Committee.
