I was awarded the 2012 Women's Justice Award as Litigation Practicioner of the Year in 2012.  I practice throughout Southwest Missouri.

  • Nancy Graven Price

    Susan is the first and most times only divorce attorney I refer people to. Hiring the best attorney in Family Law is critical to a successful outcome at this difficult time. Susan's knowledge of the law and experience is without match in the southwest Missouri area. Your only concern would be to hire her before your spouse does.


    Nancy Price White Collar Crime Attorney
    Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
