I have been an attorney in private practice for 25 years. I have represented several of the largest securities brokerage firms in the United States in the areas of securities disputes, employment litigation, intellectual property, trade secrets and real estate litigation. Along the way, I have tried and/or settled dozens of disputes resulting in millions in cash recoveries for my clients.

My practice also includes representation of individual investors in disputes with stock brokers and brokerage firms, hearings and settlements of which have resulted in large cash recoveries for several individual clients. I also represent homeowners in foreclosure defense and have successfully stopped many foreclosures in Missouri and handle a variety of family law issues including divorce, custody and modification.

For individual employees, I provide deeply experienced representation in discrimination, sexual harassment, wrongful termination and employment disputes, including disputes regarding non-compete agremeents, non-solicit agreements and intellectual property disputes.

I am a graduate of Ladue High School where I played on the golf and hockey teams. I am also a graduate of Saint Louis University where I was a member of the hockey team and Phi Delta Theta fraternity, and earned a B.S. in Business Administration, an M.S. in Finance and a Juris Doctor (J.D.). 

I am a resident of Ladue, Missouri and have three children.

Chris Wehrle
Chris (J Chris) Wehrle has taken my case and my boyfriend's case and has been an AMAZING attorney. Very professional, thorough and keeps us both updated on our individual cases. He went above and beyond, showing us rights we didn't even know we had. He gave us both so much peace of mind that we are less stressed and more at ease. I would recommend him to anyone without hesitation.
