Martha has successfully written and argued several dispositive motions, earning
dismissals of the claims against her clients, tried jury and bench trials, and argued
before the United States Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit. Before law school,
Martha worked in government affairs for a clean water non-profit and as an account

Martha was honored to be named as a “Rising Star” in 2021 by Illinois Super Lawyers

A fifth-generation attorney from a small town in Mid-Missouri, Martha’s familial
background of solo and small practice attorneys, instilled in her a respect for the
practice of law and an appreciation of caring for each client. She endeavors to be as
accessible and dedicated to each of her clients as she would be if they were a neighbor
from her hometown. Outside the office, Martha enjoys traveling, eating new cuisines
but not cooking them, and spending time with her friends and family.
