Chosen by his peers to be one of the "Best Lawyers in America" and recognized by St. Louis Magazine as one of the best in St. Louis in Family Law. A proud Fellow of the prestigious American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers - an organization which accepts few applicants. Proclaimed as a "Super Lawyer" for the Missouri-Kansas area in the area of family law.
My primary mission is to protect my clients and their futures. I strive to help people get through one of the most difficult times in their lives by giving honest, straight and realistic advice. Considered by many to be a voice of reason and common sense. I bring the best of my skills, knowledge and experience to each case I handle.
Serve as both a litigator in high asset or complex custody cases or as a family law mediator. In addition, I represent people wishing to obtain prenuptial or postnuptial agreements, characterizing and dividing assets and debts in a divorce context, modifying divorce judgments, dealing with issues of maintenance and/or child support and representing clients in the collaborative law process. One of my goals is to ensure the best interests of the parties' children.
Have significant experience in representing professionals, business owners and their spouses in both contested cases and in settlements.
The choice of a lawyer is an important decision and should not be based solely on advertisement.
