WASHINGTON UNIVERSITY GRADUATE JOINS GROWING ST. LOUIS FIRM
St. Louis, MO – Misty A. Watson joined local law firm Danna McKitrick, P.C. as their newest transactional associate. Her practice concentration is in the area of estate planning—specifically in creating trusts, wills, powers of attorney, trust administration, guardianships and conservatorships.
Watson’s experience in addressing the particular needs of families began with her pre-law social work career and continued through her clerking experience at another mid-sized St. Louis law firm, Georgia Legal Services, and Legal Services of Eastern Missouri.
“Misty’s social work background shows through in her caring and professional approach with clients of all ages. We’re very happy to have her on board,” says Cheryl Beebe-Snell, a key attorney in the firm’s business, tax, and estate practice. “Her level of involvement in programs and community activities during and after law school reflects her desire to improve everything she touches—that’s a special quality in a lawyer.”
Watson earned her J.D. from Washington University School of Law in 2006 where she was a Scholar in Law, on the Women’s Law Caucus, and a member of the Order of the Barristers. She attended East Central University for her undergraduate studies earning a Bachelor of Social Work. Prior to law school, she was an adoption specialist responsible for matching families to children available for adoption.
