Introduction

I have over sixteen years of legal experience, primarily in the complex area of Family Law.  I am currently a Principal at the law firm of Curtis, Heinz, Garrett & O'Keefe, PC.  I have been recognized as a “Rising Star” by the Missouri and Kansas Super Lawyers since 2009.  In 2011, I was elected by my peers to serve a three year term on the Missouri Bar’s Family Law Section Executive Council.  I have been honored to practice for seven years at Zerman Mogerman, LLC and under the tutelage of Cary Mogerman and Allan Zerman, both of whom are long time Fellows of the AAML.  My practice is exclusively limited to Family Law with a primary focus on complex cases involving substantial assets, business interests, professional practices, contested child custody issues, adult abuse and appellate practice.

 

 

Emphasis

My practice is devoted exclusively to traditional client representation of individuals in divorce and family law matters. This representation includes litigation,trial, and negotiation.
