Family Law, Criminal Law & Estate Planning Attorneys

About Us

In 2016, Law Office of the Ozarks in Springfield Missouri was formed by firm owners and attorneys, Joe and Andrea Pate. In 2017, Pates Law Group, the firm Joe and Andrea started more than 10 years ago that began in Orlando, Florida, was sold. Attorney Joe Pate has kept his focus and passion on Criminal Defense and Juvenile Law, while Attorney Andrea Pate has been devoted to all the needs encompassed in Family Law, including divorce, paternity, adoption, mediation, and Guardian Ad Litem services. As they began assessing the needs of the community, they realized people need help with not only these areas of life, but additional those looking for collateral protection and planning. So, in 2019 they found and built a larger office in Springfield to house their growth and accommodate the need. New to 2022, Joe and Andrea acquired another office in Stone County, Galena, Missouri. This allows the firm to expand and serve a vaster area more efficiently while growing with the needs of the community. Currently, Law Office of the Ozarks has five active attorneys to serve clients in areas of Criminal Defense, Juvenile Law, Divorce, Adoption, Paternity, Mediation, Guardian Ad litem Services, Estate Planning, Probate and Real Estate Law. Whatever obstacles lie before you, our team at Law Office of the Ozarks would be happy assist you with navigating through them.  Schedule a consultation today.
