aking a positive impact in the lives of individuals and in communities is no small task, but Gretchen Myers takes that role seriously. As founding principal of The Law Offices of Gretchen Myers, P.C., she leverages every opportunity inside and outside court to advocate for safety. “People are not aware that there’s always an attempt to limit the access people have to justice,” says Myers. “Some corporations, insurance companies, and lobbyists make it their agenda to make it as difficult as possible for an individual, because the bottom line is: They don’t want to have to pay for safety.” In addition to going to the Missouri state legislature to “keep the courthouse doors open for every individual,” Myers puts her expertise to use as the first female trial lawyer chosen to sit on the Association of Plaintiff Interstate Trucking Lawyers of America (APITLA) national advisory board. The group’s mission is to initiate changes in the trucking industry to reduce the number of crashes, injuries, and deaths caused by semi-tractor trailers. “Whether it’s lowering the number of hours a trucker can drive or advocating for computergenerated systems that stop a truck before a collision, we’re always exploring ways to make America’s roadways safer,” she says. “Sometimes the only thing insurance companies and corporations understand is a financial penalty, so verdicts telling them safety comes first helps to protect our community.” She also believes that knowledge of the trial process—how trials take place, the rules of evidence, and the circumstances that positively or negatively affect a verdict—are essential. Trial experience has given her access to corporate documents that reveal the corporate approach to achieving profitability. These insights are invaluable for preparing successful legal strategies, she says. This combination of active courtroom and community engagement gives Myers a wellrounded view of safety issues. As a result, she achieves the outcomes her clients need— significant awards and mandated changes to dangerous corporate practices. One award she’s proudest of is being the first to receive The Daily Record’s Justice Award in recognition of her significant contribution “to her area of expertise and her positive impact on the community.”

ST. LOUIS METRO MAP This map shows the Best Lawyers-designated “metro areas” in St. Louis and the surrounding counties. In order to collect feedback on firm and attorney work within specific regions, Best Lawyers curates “metro areas.” For research purposes, smaller and more rural cities located within a reasonable distance to larger cities are combined into single geographical regions—metro areas—to help us collect as much feedback and data for specific individuals, firms, and practice areas, as possible. We also award “Lawyer of the Year” accolades through these metro area distinctions.

IN  t he Metro St. Louis NEWS ►

Bryan Cave: Walter L. Metcalfe, Jr. (corporate law, 1987) was named St. Louis’ 2015 Citizen of the Year by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch for his contributions to the betterment of the city, including, as founder and past chairman of the CityArchRiver Foundation, his leadership of the international design competition to reimagine the St. Louis Gateway Arch grounds and the ongoing $360 million renovation of the grounds. HeplerBroom: Thomas J. Magee (personal injury litigation – defendants; product liability litigation – defendants; professional malpractice law – defendants, 2007) was part of a team that secured a dismissal of criminal charges against Sunset Hills Mayor Mark Furrer, who prosecutors alleged had intentionally hit a cyclist with his car. The charges against Mayor Furrer were dropped after the defense proved that the cyclist lied about his injuries and damages from the incident, claiming that his bike was totaled and he’d been unable to work for three months, when he actually had competed in cycling races around the country during his time off work, riding a seemingly identical bike. Law Office of Richard S. Cornfeld: Richard S. Cornfeld (mass tort litigation / class actions – plaintiffs, 2013) is part of a team representing St. Louis Rams fans in a class action suit against the NFL. The suit argues that the planned relocation

of the Rams to Los Angeles breaches the contracts of thousands of season ticket holders who purchased personal seat licenses guaranteeing them a right to buy season tickets for the St. Louis-based team through 2024.

Sher Corwin Winters: Richard P. Sher (arbitration; commercial litigation; mediation, 2008) was honored with the Richard S. Arnold Award for Distinguished Service by the Eighth Circuit Bar Association. Sher has mediated more than 2,200 civil cases and the award specifically recognizes him for his contributions to the widespread acceptance of alternative dispute resolution in civil matters. Simmons Hanly Conroy: Perry J. Browder (personal injury litigation – plaintiffs, 2013) contributed an op-ed piece to the Rockville Register Star, “My View: Lawsuits far down the list of business concerns,” arguing that companies doing business in Illinois are not threatened by so-called “lawsuit abuse” to the extent that they would like the public to think. Browder is president of the Illinois Trial Lawyers Association and a shareholder in the firm’s Alton, Illinois, office.

PRIVATE PRACTICE:

Armstrong Teasdale: John S. Beulick (litigation – patent; patent law, 2006) was elected firm managing partner and previous managing partner Michael A. Chivell

(corporate law; real estate law, 2009) was elected chairman. Thomas B. Weaver (appellate practice; eminent domain and condemnation law, 2007) was appointed assistant general counsel for the firm.

Capes Sokol: Harvard W. Muhm (trusts and estates, 2011) joined the firm as shareholder and chair of the new trusts and estates group. He was previously with Muhm & Reilly.

Greensfelder, Hemker & Gale: Timothy R. Thornton (construction law; litigation – construction, 2007) was appointed CEO of the firm.

Raza & Jones: Sophya Qureshi Raza (collaborative law: family law, 2014) and Stephanie L. Jones (family law, 2016) founded the new family law firm. Raza and Jones were previously with Danna McKitrick and Zerman Mogerman, respectively.

IN-HOUSE AND GOVERNMENT:

Bryan Cave: Edward J. Hejlek (patent law, 2011) left the firm to become general counsel and senior vice president for Tricida, a biopharmaceutical company in the San Francisco, California, area. Compiled by Nathaniel Barr NOTE Lawyers listed in Best Lawyers are indicated by their selected practice area(s) in parentheses along with the first year they were included in the Best Lawyers list.

RUNAWAY JUDICIARY Missouri Judges on the Move

In January, retiring federal magistrate judge Thomas C. Mummert of the U.S. District Court for Eastern Missouri was replaced by Judge Patricia L. Cohen, who left her position on the Missouri Court of Appeals, Eastern District.

In February, the Missouri Appellate Judicial Commission sent the names of three nominees to fill the vacancy left by Judge Cohen to Governor Nixon. Thomas M. Burke (personal injury litigation – plaintiffs,

2013) of Hullverson Law Firm serves as one of seven members of the commission and helped select the nominees from a pool of 15 applicants. Governor Nixon chose the Honorable Judge Colleen Dolan to fill the vacancy.

On June 30, Judge Dolan was sworn in on the Missouri Court of Appeals, Eastern District, and left her judgeship on the St. Louis County circuit court.

Best Lawyers wishes them all the best of luck! 6 |

ST. LOUIS

Best Lawyers-listed attorney Stanley J. Wallach (eminent domain and condemnation law, 2007) of The Wallach Law Firm is among the applicants to fill the vacancy left by Judge Dolan.

Sophya Qureshi Raza COLLABORATIVE LAW: FAMILY LAW St. Louis, MO

Sophy Raza founded her new firm, Raza & Jones, in January with fellow family law attorney Stephanie Jones. Both attorneys kicked off their careers at St. Louis firms in the early 2000s, faced one another a few times in court, and then became fast friends. Raza, who previously practiced collaborative family law at a larger firm, which had legal practice groups in many areas, has found it rewarding to work for herself and to be at a firm focused exclusively on resolving family law issues. “You either hate family law or you love it—and if you hate it you probably shouldn’t be doing it! People who gravitate toward family law tend to be natural listeners and natural problem solvers. I like to listen to people’s issues and create solutions for them, and it’s always rewarding when they work.” Raza began her career practicing traditional family law with a litigation component and had some rewarding courtroom victories, but she found her calling in the practice of collaborative family law— which does not involve litigation—after attending an informational session held by the local collaborative family law association. “I went and listened and thought it was fantastic. It required some training, so I joined the association and was fortunate to get cases. It’s a nice and very different change of pace from court and it’s a better way to get divorced, if you’re suited for the process,” she says. “Collaborative divorce usually draws people who are committed to figuring things out for themselves and committed to keeping their relationship intact down the road for co-parenting reasons. You create your own agreement and get 100-percent input into what life is going to look like for you financially and for your kids, whereas, if you’re in court and you can’t settle things, a judge will decide what is best for your family and your kids. It’s much better than court in my opinion.” In addition to winning St. Louis’ collaborative law: family law “Lawyer of the Year” award for 2017, Raza has been listed with Best Lawyers in this practice area since 2014, is a certified mediator through the Washington University School of Social Work, and a graduate of the ABA Family Law Trial Advocacy Institute.

L

isted as a Missouri and Kansas Super Lawyers Rising Star in 2008, Who’s Who in Law in 2015, Best Lawyers 2015-2017, and named Best Lawyers’ 2017 St. Louis Family Law “Lawyer of the Year,” Ms. Moore is well known for her superior skills and knowledge when dealing with complex child custody and child support cases. Ms. Moore maximizes every possible advantage for her client in order to accomplish their goals, whether in settlement negotiations or at trial. She is focused and prepared and a zealous advocate for her clients, both in and out of the courtroom. Ms. Moore’s educational background in psychology, along with her direct and strong personality, makes her a tireless and knowledgeable advocate for her clients, who are often overwhelmed dealing with either their own, or a spouse’s, issues with physical abuse, emotional abuse, sexual abuse, alienation, neglect, mental illness or personality disorders, drugs or alcohol abuse, or addiction and gambling or sex addiction. Ms. Moore was recently named a 2016 Law Firm Leader by Missouri Lawyers Weekly and has served as President of the Firm since January 2015. The choice of a lawyer is an important decision and should not be based solely upon advertisements.
