Attorney Troy E. Walton announced his representation of attorney Michael Reda in Reda's suit against State Farm Insurance over its alleged failure to pay for hail damage to his St. Louis home.

Reda filed the suit June 25 in Madison County Circuit Court.

Reda, a partner at HeplerBroom, also named Eberl's Claim Service Inc., William Joseph Van Vactor Jr. and Van's Adjusting Inc. as defendants.

Reda demands $60,000, plus court costs for roof repair. He argues that the claims adjuster and roof inspector determined the roof could be repaired rather than replaced.

The suit states that the amount of roof damage established by Van Vactor, John Doe, Eberl's and State Farm was false.

"Mike Reda is a good man and a good lawyer and I was honored to be asked to represent him in this case," Walton said. "I look forward to proving his case in court."

Madison County Chief Judge Ann Callis presides.
