Attorney Profile

I am Melissa Featherston, a family attorney in St. Charles, MO, and the greater metropolitan area. I dedicate my entire practice to litigation with a focus on divorce, child custody, and other areas involving family law. Following my first trial case nine months after finishing law school, I have had many opportunities to fight for the legal interest of my clients in the courtroom. I also have extensive experience with resolving legal issues through negotiation and meditation.
