The Springfield, Missouri office of Polsinelli opened in 1997 and is located in Springfield’s tallest landmark, Hammons Tower. Most of the attorneys in the Springfield office are native Ozarkians and have practiced law in southwest Missouri for many years. They have a unique appreciation and insight into the history and culture of the area, which provides them a solid basis for their representation of clients from both inside and outside their region.
Highly regarded in their various fields of practice and with numerous credentials, the Springfield team of attorneys includes a former Missouri Supreme Court Chief Justice, a former judge from the Missouri Court of Appeals for the Southern District, a former elected prosecuting attorney of Howell County and a member of the Panel of Trustees of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Western District of Missouri. Four of the Springfield attorneys have been selected as The Best Lawyers in America®, and two of our Springfield attorneys have been distinguished by being selected as a Fellow in the American College of Trial Lawyers and a Fellow in Litigation Counsel of America.
With a well-established litigation practice and a growing business, financial services and real estate practice, the attorneys represent clients in numerous industries, including banking and financial institutions; construction (representing contractors, subcontractors, engineers and architects); utilities; manufacturing; real estate; insurance; telecommunications; education; tourism; and trucking. In service to their clients, the attorneys frequently participate with clients in alternative dispute resolution, and the office provides a broad range of mediation and arbitration services at the request of judges, attorneys and parties outside the firm, who are seeking an alternative to prolonged litigation.
