Stinson's Laura Tyler Recognized on List of Top Family Law Attorneys
Stinson LLP attorney Laura Tyler is recognized on the Missouri Lawyers Media POWER List featuring the top family law attorneys in the state.
Tyler is one of 30 attorneys recognized by the publication. She was selected for her extensive litigation experience handling family and juvenile cases. At present, the greatest number of Tyler's appointed cases are assigned to the Jackson County Family Treatment Court where she advocates for parents as they progress and successfully complete treatment services that address substance use disorders and safe parenting skills.
The POWER List is a series feature from Missouri Lawyers Media that examines practitioners who lead and influence parts of Missouri's legal community. For the categories, the publication's editorial team interviews respected attorneys and leaders around the state, reviews outcomes of significant cases and state records, and consults the archives of Missouri Lawyers Weekly to compile the lists of what they believe to be the most powerful people in each part of Missouri's legal community.
Tyler, a former public defender, joined one of the legacy firms of Stinson in 1989, which coincided with a revision to the Missouri Juvenile Code that extended the right to appointed counsel to include indigent parents. Over the last three decades, and on behalf of the firm, Tyler has accepted court appointments from the Jackson County Circuit Court Family Court Division to represent parents facing allegations of child abuse and neglect, as well as juveniles who have allegedly committed a crime. Tyler was among the pro bono attorneys who were recognized in 2021 by the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges with the Impact of the Year Award for their dedication to ensuring equal access to justice in the Jackson County Family Court.
