Sticklen & Dreyer Personal Injury Attorneys & Staff

Serving Columbia and Joplin, Missouri

Located in downtown Columbia, MO and Joplin, MO, Sticklen and Dreyer has chosen to live and serve in the communities that nurtured them.


Since their time as law students at MU, Shelly and Charlie have remained passionate about serving the local community. Charlie believes Columbia and Joplin are the right places for the practice to provide its services to an under served community because the law firm represents individuals who face uphill battles against corporations and insurance companies. “If I can help the people of Mid-Missouri in the same fashion that we have served the people of Southwest Missouri over the past 25 years, then I’m going to do just that,” he says.


During her free time, Shelly is involved with MU alumni association activities. Not only does Charlie guest lecture at the undergraduate level at MU, but he also guest lectures for the University of Missouri School of Law. (Read More)
