Jolie Justus Honored by Mo. Judicial Conference

Of Counsel Jolie Justus, who is vice-chair of the firm's pro bono committee and serves in the Missouri Legislature, has been honored with a Special Recognition Award for outstanding legislative service by the Judicial Conference of Missouri. Recognized for championing legal services for the indigent and standing against legislation that would infringe on the judiciary's role, Justus joined five other legislators receiving honors at the judiciary's annual meeting in Springfield. Chief Justice Laura Denvir Stith, an SHB alumna, presenting the awards, stated, "We honor them because we so greatly appreciate their willingness to take the time to research and think critically about not only judicial matters but all matters."
