Our Philosophy

Comprehensive & Creative St. Louis Family Lawyers

At The Buxner Law Firm, we understand that no two cases are alike and that one-size-fits-all approaches are not conducive to getting the best possible results. We want to partner with you to achieve the end goal you have in mind, whether that goal is trying to finalize an adoption, gaining full custody of your children, or obtaining a modification of your divorce terms. Because we value each and every client we represent, we take the time to truly get to know our clients so that we can align ourselves with their goals and more effectively represent their interests.

Communication Is Key

We believe that one of the most crucial elements of high quality advocacy is communication. Our attorneys take pride in our ability to communicate with clients in a timely, clear, and honest manner. We recognize that dealing with a divorce or family matter can be a stressful time and that the outcome of your case is important, which is why we strive to ensure that you remain informed throughout every step of the process and that you have all of the information you need to make the best decisions for you and your family.

Our attorneys don't want your case to be a source of worry; we want you to feel confident that you are in good hands. With this in mind, we commit ourselves to represent you with the respect that you deserve and act as a partner who continuously communicates with you.

Our Firm's Persistence Principle

Our St. Louis family law attorneys aren't daunted by difficult cases. We take goals that other attorneys say can't be done and we pursue them to favorable results. In the past, we have been highly successful when we have chosen to persevere through difficulty and setbacks.

We are proud to say that our fierce attitude has helped us achieve victory even when things seemed bleak in the midst of the court case. When you work with us, you can trust that we will not give up and will fight to the very end. We are creative with our cases and will think of alternatives that may not be apparent to other attorneys.

Our Unique Approach to Family Law & Divorce

At The Buxner Law Firm, we approach each case from a unique perspective. We are committed to helping our clients understand their legal circumstances and rights so they can have a clear and realistic perspective of their goals. In most cases, we take a four-pronged approach to divorce. This means that, regardless of the particulars of your case, most of the issues will fall under one of the following categories:

Marital Property

  • Who gets the house?
  • How will we divide our separate bank accounts?
  • Will the court divide our cars and personal belongings?
  • Who is responsible to pay back joint debts?


  • Am I entitled to receive financial support from my spouse?
  • Will the court order me to pay maintenance?
  • How much alimony will I pay / receive?
  • How long does spousal maintenance last?
  • Can I get permanent spousal support?

Child Support

  • How much money will I pay / receive for child support?
  • How long will my child need support?
  • How does the court determine child support payments?
  • Do I need to get a court-ordered child support agreement?

Child Custody

  • Can I get sole custody of my child?
  • If we get joint custody, how often will I see my child?
  • If we have joint custody, do I still pay / receive child support?
  • What happens if I want to change our custody settlement?

Within each of these categories, we can organize the issues related to your separation. Using this approach, our St. Louis divorce lawyers can create an effective strategy to meet your divorce goals.
