About me

As a family law attorney, I focus my practice on helping children at the Columbia, Missouri firm of Columbia Family Law Group. When I began practicing law, I was the court-appointed guardian ad litem in child orders of protection cases, providing me with extensive experience in working with the legal issues involving children, child custody and parent rights, particularly in cases of abuse and neglect. Supported by this solid foundation, I now focus my practice in adoption law, custody cases, and guardian ad litem work, representing parents and children in cases of divorce, custody modification, child support, and guardianship cases in probate court.

With passion, hard work, and sincere concern for your unique circumstances, I am confident of assisting you in your family law cases and adoption goals for a truly rewarding outcome.

  • Amy Davis Salladay

    I have worked with Tana for over 8 years. She is a colleague and friend. Her accomplishment in obtaining the first same sex divorce in Missouri is something many people don't know about her. She hasn't been afraid to tackle complicated legal issues in front of our judges. She is intelligent, patient, fun to be around, and really cares about her clients. She shares the same goals that I do in terms of always trying to put our clients first and focusing on making sure every client has the best possible outcome in their case. It is an honor and privilege that she is part of our Columbia Family Law Group team.
