Stacey Meyer Bowman Receives Pro Bono Award from Missouri Bar

The Young Lawyers' Section Council of the Missouri Bar recently presented Husch Blackwell's Stacey Meyer Bowman the Pro Bono Publico Award, an award bestowed annually to a lawyer that has practiced less than four years and has participated in a pro bono program delivering legal services to the poor. Bowman assists in pro bono immigration, adoption and contract matters and recently won a political asylum trial in the Kansas City Immigration Court. She also helps develop pro bono Continuing Legal Education (CLE) programs to enable other attorneys to handle immigration matters involving human trafficking, political asylum and domestic violence. Through her efforts, Husch Blackwell has forged new relationships with two local social service agencies in need of pro bono assistance.

The Young Lawyers' Section of the Missouri Bar consists of Missouri lawyers aged 36 years or under or, if older, those who have been practicing five years or less. The Section seeks to advance the professional growth and public service of young and recently admitted attorneys by hosting service projects, CLE classes and social networking events.

An Associate in Husch Blackwell's Kansas City, Mo. office, Bowman practices Business Litigation and Healthcare law and has an active litigation practice in both state and federal district courts. She represents clients in commercial contract disputes, insurance coverage claims and business torts. Her experience also includes healthcare litigation, medical malpractice defense and products liability suits.

Husch Blackwell encourages its attorneys to serve the community by performing pro bono work. The firm gives full billable hour credit to its attorneys for time spent on pro bono work and supports various programs where firm offices are located.
