Summary

Barbara has been practicing law in the St. Louis Metro East area for over 27 years, concentrating in the areas of family law, real estate law, criminal defense and general civil practice.

She completed both her undergraduate degree and Juris Doctorate at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri. During law school, she clerked on the Court of Appeals in Eastern Missouri and worked at a personal injury law firm.

After graduating, she worked at the Law Firm of Lucco, Brown, and Mudge in Edwardsville, Illinois. Additionally, Barbara was the lead attorney in the Domestic Violence/Child Support Enforcement Unit of the Madison County State’s Attorney’s Office for over 2 years.

Barbara opened her own practice in Edwardsville, Illinois in April, 1993. Her practice encompasses being in-house-counsel for Abstracts and Titles, a position she has held for almost 25 years.

Barb volunteers at several philanthropic organizations in the community, including being a member of the board of the Edwardsville Arts Center.

While Barbara projects a confident and assertive attitude in the courtroom, her instinctual approach in cases is to attempt a settlement. Her many years of experience have taught her that parties are infinitely happier if they make the decision about the resolution of a case themselves instead of having a Judge decide.
