We have not found any instances of professional misconduct for this lawyer.
I began my career focused on consumer protection legal work when a mover destroyed all of my furniture and gave me fake insurance information shortly after I passed the bar. Trying to turn a negative experience into a positive one, I began volunteering as a consumer protection attorney for Legal Services of Eastern Missouri. I volunteered there full time for several months prior to starting a law practice with a classmate in St. Louis County. In that firm, my focus was on civil litigation matters and estate planning. I handled primarily consumer protection cases, including auto dealer fraud, home contractor disputes, debt collection defense, and representing tenants against landlords.
I went on to found Flesner Wentzel, a general practice firm in St. Charles, Missouri in 2013. I continue to selectively handle consumer protection, estate planning, and probate matters, however my primary focus at Flesner Wentzel is family law cases. For more than five years, I have been helping clients with dissolutions, paternity cases, child custody, and child support matters. Our firm is not afraid to handle complex cases. We work hard and ask for extraordinary relief when it is necessary. Our willingness to handle cases that are outside the typical case have lead us to do complicated adoption work, work to get a child back after being kidnapped by family members, grand parents rights and third party custody cases, and LGBT dissolutions of civil unions/divorces. While no one "wins" in family law cases, my firm and I give clients reasonable expectations and work hard to achieve our clients' goals.
When I am not at work, I enjoy traveling, spending time with my family, and ecape rooms!
