Family law matters can have far-reaching consequences for many aspects of your life, including your relationship with your children and your financial future. The law in this area is unquestionably complex. Whether you face a divorce or another type of family law matter, it is crucial that you have an attorney that you can rely on to understand your needs and protect what is most important to you. Myia McKenna has been a family law attorney for over 15 years. She honed her legal expertise practicing in the family court divisions in both St. Louis and Kansas City before returning to her native Columbia, where she has established herself as a highly skilled and dedicated family law practitioner. She has earned the trust of her clients as a compassionate legal counselor, skilled negotiator, and experienced advocate.

We strive to make each client feel like our only client. Client calls and e-mails will be returned promptly, and we will keep you informed every step of the way. We take the time to listen to you and understand what is most important to you and your objectives. The attorney will analyze the facts of your case and explain the law and procedure so you know what to expect throughout the process.
