I am Melissa Featherston, a Missouri family law attorney serving clients in the Greater St. Louis area. I dedicate 100 percent of my practice to litigation, with a particularly strong focus on divorce, child custody and other areas of family law.

I tried my first case nine months out of law school and have since had many opportunities to advocate for my clients' interests in court. I am also experienced at resolving issues through negotiation and mediation. To learn more about my background, please review my full profile.
