About Summer

Learn Summer’s areas of practice.

My name is Summer Masterson-Goethals and I am a divorce attorney in Springfield, Missouri and I have over 20 years of experience serving the families of Southwest Missouri. 

As a former legal aid attorney, I believe every client should have access to quality legal representation at a reasonable price.

When you call me, you won't get re-routed to a paralegal. I take calls and return calls timely. I work with my clients to accomplish their goals efficiently, effectively, and with as little financial strain as possible.

Attentive representation on family law issues like child custody, child support, juvenile, parental rights, marriage law, and more.

Quality divorce representation with fair and clear pricing and the 1-on-1 attention you deserve during a difficult time.

A certified family and civil mediation practitioner, Summer Masterson-Goethals is an alternative dispute resolution specialist.

Representation of consumers in a variety of areas including fair debt collection, wrongful repossession, auto fraud, and much more.

Worst Lawyer Ever
Her paralegal lost my paperwork. Summer refused to speak to or work with opposing counsel. She was so bad I fired her and went without representation. The absolute worst attorney I've ever used in my life. She is awful.

Terrible lawyer
This was the worst lawyer I’ve ever had. She didn’t help me with anything, she would never speak up for me and would tell me to be quiet when I had facts. She would talk with the other lawyer and tell me I couldn’t say anything. Stay away from her because she doesn’t help at all.
