Practice Description


Douglas J. Bieller concentrates his current practice on toxic tort, product liability, and construction litigation. He represents clients in asbestos cases pending in St. Louis, Missouri; Madison and Cook Counties in Illinois; and various outlying counties in both Illinois and Missouri. In addition, he is National Coordinating Counsel for a client involved in asbestos litigation throughout the entire United States. As part of that role, he follows various asbestos litigation trends and dockets in some of the busiest jurisdictions in the United States including Madison County, Illinois; Baltimore; and New York City.

Prior to joining HeplerBroom, Mr. Bieller started his legal career at a firm specializing in insurance defense litigation. He has represented individuals, businesses, homeowners’ associations, and insurance carriers in numerous matters including first and third party claims, insurance coverage opinions, premises liability, personal injury, and construction law. Additionally, he has trial experience with successful bench and jury verdicts and has achieved numerous successful case resolutions through mediation.

Mr. Bieller has a background rooted in engineering and construction, which provides him with a unique perspective when handling asbestos cases when exposures are alleged through not only products, but also through the construction of residential, commercial, and industrial facilities/buildings
