Attorney at Law
I supplement my legal education and experience by active involvement in the American Bar Association, the Missouri Bar and the Council of Agricultural Science and Technology.
"Shawna is one of the hardest working attorneys I have ever met. She follows through to completion of the project, promptly returns phone calls, never loses composure and gets us to where we need and want to be in a cost-efficient manner. Would highly recommend for research and development, client interaction and ultimate service in her field of expertise"
