Biography

Jaime (Sitton) Bremerkamp joined Sandberg Phoenix in May 2009 as an associate after spending three years with another St. Louis law firm. As a member of the Health Law Practice Group, Jaime has developed extensive experience in medical malpractice cases, birth trauma litigation, drafting and enforcing arbitration agreements, product liability cases and appellate work. Throughout her career, she has worked with hospitals, nursing homes and physicians to ensure they receive the highest caliber legal representation.

“Sandberg Phoenix’s broad scope of health law work attracted me to the firm,” Jaime says. “Being able to work with highly skilled attorneys on complex cases, representing some of the largest healthcare providers in the region is incredibly rewarding.”

Getting to know her clients, Jaime invests the time to learn about the context surrounding current issues and the environment in which they work. Using this knowledge, she is able to look beyond immediate needs and help clients put in place measures that prevent future litigation.

“I love staying busy and finding new ways to work for the best interest of my clients. Investigating cases, taking depositions and going to court to defend my clients is both exciting and rewarding,” says Jaime.

In her free time, Jaime spends time with her husband Justin and sons Auggie and Artie, plays volleyball and is an avid reader. She is also a huge St. Louis Cardinals fan and travels to see the Redbirds play in a different city each year (13 stadiums down, 17 to go).

Background

Jaime earned her Juris Doctor in 2006 from Marquette University Law School. She received her Bachelor of Arts in Political Science with a minor in Asian Studies from Truman State University in 2003.

In recognition of her talent as an attorney, Jaime was among a select group of attorneys rated a “Rising Star” by Missouri & Kansas Super Lawyers from 2013-2015.

Jaime is licensed to practice in the states of Missouri, Illinois and Wisconsin and in the United States District Courts for the Eastern District of Missouri and Southern District of Illinois.

As a member of the Board of Directors for Keystone, a St. Louis philanthropic organization committed to supporting area charities, Jaime helps give back to the community by organizing events and fundraisers for local organizations.

Successes

Rung v. Hospital. Jaime and Rodney Sharp obtained a defense verdict for their hospital client in this action against a hospital and a physician. The claim against the hospital centered upon the nurses’ failure to report signs and symptoms of vascular compromise following a total right knee replacement resulting in necrosis of the ankle which eventually led to a frozen ankle. Medical expenses exceeded $225,000.

Publications
Jaime is a contributor to Sandberg Phoenix’s Long Term Care Blog and regularly writes updates on important current trends for the firm’s health law newsletters.
