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 six 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.

Cary Mogerman Serves on AAML, ABA Family Law Faculty
In July, our partner Cary J. Mogerman once again served on the faculty of the American Bar Association’s week-long “Family Law Trial Advocacy Institute” in Boulder, Colorado. The Institute is an intensive eight day trial advocacy skills instruction and training program designed especially for the field of family law, and enjoys an enrollment of experienced family law attorneys from all over the United States seeking to improve their courtroom and trial advocacy skills. The Institute is co-sponsored by the National Institute for Trial Advocacy (“NITA”), an organization known as the worldwide leader in trial advocacy skills training, and took place on NITA’s Boulder, Colorado headquarters. This was Cary's third summer as an instructor on the ABA/NITA Institute faculty.
In addition to the ABA Trial Advocacy Institute, Cary served in June as a member of the faculty of the annual Institute for Family Law Associates of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, an annual four-day program designed for associates of Fellows of the AAML, and intended to help them learn substantive family law skills and practice methods. He lectured on issues in divorce taxation and second chair responsibilities in family law cases. He has served as an instructor of the AAML Institute since 2006.
