The prestigious “Best Lawyers in America” 2022 report produced by Best Lawyers® has given high accolades to the attorneys of Raza & Jones, LLC. We are incredibly honored to earn the recognition of our peers once again.
Founding member Sophya Raza was named 2022 “Lawyer of the Year” for Family Law Mediation in St. Louis, based on overwhelming feedback from her peers. Only a single lawyer in each practice area and community receives a Lawyer of the Year award, making this a tremendous honor indeed. In addition, Sophya earned an award for Collaborative Law: Family Law and Family Law. In 2017, Sophya was named “Lawyer of the Year” in Collaborative Law: Family Law.
Fellow founding member Stephanie L. Jones was recognized along with Sophya Raza for her strong work in Family Law. For Stephanie this was the seventh consecutive year and for Sophya for the eighth.
Associate attorneys Sarah J. Wittrock and Kayte E. Rossi again earned honors on the Best Lawyers “Ones to Watch” list for their outstanding professional excellence in private practice. In the 2022 Best Lawyers report they are named for Family Law and Family Law: Arbitration and Mediation. We’re proud that our rising stars have been recognized for their dedication and fine work.
“These awards are such an honor for our firm because they signify trust,” said Sophya. “Clients know they can depend on us to provide effective, compassionate legal representation when facing some of life’s most difficult and consequential decisions.”
The firm handles family law matters including legal separation and divorce, child custody, child support, prenuptial and postnuptial agreements, spousal maintenance, agreement modifications, estate planning and more.
“The situation was made even more challenging this past year due to the coronavirus pandemic,” added Stephanie. “As an essential business, we remained open and available to our clients, answering questions and providing the same high level of guidance.”
