Reason and Experience in Divorce Law
Zerman Mogerman LLC provides an effective voice of reason and experience in the field of divorce law. We discreetly and assertively represent people in dissolution of marriage proceedings, legal separations, prenuptial agreements, proceedings to modify existing decrees, proceedings to enforce existing decrees, proceedings to collect child and spousal support, and in certain paternity cases. We also handle appeals of family law cases.
We represent men and women in the city and county of St. Louis, Missouri, and surrounding areas in Missouri. Our practice is limited exclusively to divorce law, and while the focus of our practice is complex cases involving substantial assets, business interests, professional practices, contested child custody issues, and appellate practice, we also routinely represent individuals in less complicated cases with efficiency and meticulous care.
Our firm consists of eight attorneys representing over one hundred and thirty years of cumulative experience in these matters. We make every reasonable effort to negotiate satisfactory settlements in these difficult cases. When settlement proves impossible, we are prepared to try the case in court.
