Published by Niki McCormick on

St. Louis, Missouri (March 6, 2023) – Lashly & Baer, P.C. announces the expansion of its service areas by adding two experienced Family Law attorneys. Deborah C.M. Henry and Katherine (Kate) E. Henry have joined the Firm and will bring a wealth of experience in handling family law issues.

“We are always looking at ways that we can improve client service. Family Law is an area that we have considered integral to our practice,” said Lashly & Baer President, Lisa Stump. “In the past, we’ve had to refer Family Law matters outside of the Firm. Now, Deborah and Kate bring experience and credibility in this area. We couldn’t be happier that they’ve agreed to join us.”

For 34 years, Deborah’s practice has solely focused on Family Law, including dissolution of marriage actions, child custody and support matters, paternity, juvenile neglect and abuse cases, and serving as a guardian ad litem for minor children. During Kate’s 10 years of practice, she assisted in numerous complex family law matters, to include, dissolution of marriage actions, post-dissolution issues and appeals. Both are graduates of St. Louis University School of Law.

“Dissolution of marriage is likely one the most stressful life events that an individual may go through in their life. During this time, an individual not only needs an attorney who can advocate on their behalf, but an attorney that will listen to their wants, needs and expectations. Achieving this balance is what I strive for in my representation.” says Deborah.

“Ultimately, the best result in all family law matters is reached when the parties can work together and reach a settlement that is in their children’s best interests, as well as their own. However, if a resolution cannot be reached between the parties, we are there to advocate on our client’s behalf. Based upon a combination of our experience and knowledge of the law, we advocate for them before, during, and after trial.” adds Kate.
