After decades of representing clients, primarily in real estate matters, my focus has shifited to mediation of disputes. My primary interests as a lawyer have involved sales of businesses, property tax contests, natural resources, commercial real estate, lending transactions, and local government. I am not taking new litigation cases, but am interested in meditating real estate and business disputes.


My firm works on complicated problems involving troubled real estate projects, including several timeshare projects. We have a lot of experience working for developers, lenders and municipalities on issues related to land use and infrastructure. We have prepared declarations of covenants, conditions and restrictions for more than 100 subdivisions and more than 40 condominiums. Our primary service area is the part of Missouri south and west of Springfield, including Branson, Springfield, the Table Rock Lake area and Joplin and Neosho. 


Through my blog, Ozarks Law & Economy, I present information about how court decisions and legislation affect life and business in the Ozarks.

For several years, I was the program chair for the Missouri Bar's Annual Real Estate Institute, which is a continuing education program for lawyers. I have spoken on many real estate law topics--condominium law, easements, zoning, and laws relating to streams and lakes, for example. I am a past chair of the Property Law committee of the Missouri Bar Association.

I am often requested to speak at professional meetings. In 2016, I spoke to the Christian County Bar Association on legal ethics and practice management and to the Missouri State Assessors Association about interpretation of difficult real estate deeds. I have spoken multiple times to the Missouri Association of Professional Surveyors.

Harry was absolutely amazing to work with. He was extremely knowledgeable and handled our case in a very professional and timely manner. Because of Harry's efforts, we were able to reach a settlement agreement that we were extremely satisfied with. Would definitely hire again!

Review of Harry Styron
I was referred to Harry by an attorney / personal friend who had utilized his services in doing some real estate / condo business. My needs were related to the same general topic but more complex. I am located out of state and have never had the pleasure of a face to face, but throughout the process I had the utmost confidence in his guidance. Harry was very patient, thorough and timely with my needs. He did a very good job of communicating the very technical elements on layman terms.

Great job!
Harry was far better and more responsive in my collections matter than the collection company I had been using. He was also fair and reasonable with his pricing. I would recommend him, and will definitely use him again if the need arises.

Reviewed real estate documents and gave excellent advice
Harry found flaws in title policy and saved me a law suite and gave me high high confidence on pursuing other real estate, he also was very personal and professional. Being a retired sheriff I wish all attorneys that l dealt with would have had Harry's integrity.

Outstanding real estate attorney!
Our condo association hired Harry to represent the owners against a developer. We were very impressed with his knowledge, abilities, and he was very reasonably priced. He was successful in a short period of time due to his extensive knowledge of the law. I highly recommend him to everyone.
