Kirk C. Stange, Esq.

Team Leader Attorney

Every family law issue varies from individual to individual, with the exception of one part: the emotional strife that affects not only yourself but also your family. You need an attorney who’s not only knowledgeable about family law, but is also going to guide you through your case every step of the way. Regina Wells is that type of attorney. Regina can help you and your West County family law and divorce issue out of the firm’s Ellisville, Missouri location and she is also a trained mediator.

Regina attended Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri and obtained her Bachelor of Arts degree in English. She then went on to receive her Juris Doctorate from University of Missouri – Columbia School of Law. She has been practicing law since 2000.  Prior to joining Stange Law Firm, PC, Regina represented individuals and business entities in complex litigation and appellate matters, but has primarily focused her practice on domestic relations litigation and appellate practice for the last eleven years.

Regina is also no stranger when it comes to participating in seminars. She has been a part of the Missouri Bar’s seminars, including: Commentator in 2014 and MoBar CLE Deskbook Reviewer in 2014. Regina has also presented for the National Business Institute and myLawCLE.  Additionally, Regina is Lead Counsel Rated for Divorce/Family Law in 2016, which is a quality assurance tool established in 1997.  Attorneys are eligible to be Lead Counsel Rated after demonstrating significant experience, peer endorsements and a clean discipline history.

When Regina is not practicing family law, she enjoys spending time outdoors either at the golf course or camping. Not only does she love the outdoors, she also loves watching documentaries and old movies, catching up on some of her favorite blogs, and when the time allows, going shopping at the local farmer’s market.

Note: The choice of a lawyer is an important decision and should not be based solely upon advertisements.
