Pedroli & Gauthier, LLC



My name is Eric A. Ruttencutter and I was born in Los Angeles, California in 1963. My family moved to St. Louis when I was seven years old.

I graduated from Webster Groves Senior High School in 1981. I went to college at the University of Illinois at Urbana/Champaign, and graduated with a B.A. in Political Science in 1985.

I attended Washington University School of Law and completed my Juris Doctorate degree in 1989.

Immediately thereafter I took and passed the Missouri Bar Examination and began work for an insurance civil defense firm in downtown St. Louis. I specialized in insurance defense litigation on behalf of many nationally known insurance companies and their insureds.

This experience was invaluable, since I learned how insurance companies prepare their defense of cases involving automobile accidents, medical malpractice, product liability and property damage claims.

In 1998 I began work at Pedroli & Gauthier, where I now represent injured individuals against the insurance companies.

I am licensed to practice law before the Missouri State Bar, the Federal Court for the Eastern District of Missouri and the Federal Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals.

I have handled hundreds of personal injury civil suits and workers’ compensation claims. One of my recent workers’ compensation cases created new law allowing recovery for mental stress as an occupational disease.

I look forward to continuing to represent individuals against the powerful insurance interests.
