I grew up in Southwest Missouri and went to college at the University of Central Missouri in Warrensburg. From there, I went to the University of Missouri in Columbia for law school. I then returned home to southwest Missouri in 1999 to establish my legal career and haven't left since.
Throughout my career, I have worked in a wide variety of cases for a wide variety of clients. I have over 20 years of experience advising clients all over the Missouri Ozarks. My experiences have ultimately given me a genuinely unique perspective on how to best guide my clients when developing an Estate Plan. I believe my clients benefit from my experience.
While I went to law school dreaming of the high drama of courtroom battles like what we see in the movies, my practice has shifted to estate planning due in large part to the advantages of being able to spend more time with my family. And while I still enjoy the courtroom, I have come to realize how enjoyable it is to help clients with Estate Planning.
