I am a life-long resident of Springfield, Missouri. I am married to Jody Austin and we are approaching our twenty-year anniversary. We have two children – both now young men: Alex who is fourteen years old and Nick who is thirteen years old. Both boys attend, and have attended, the same public schools as I did, that is, Wilder Elementary, Pershing Middle School and Glendale High School.
My family and I are members of King’s Way United Methodist Church, where Jody and I were married. Jody volunteers at the church in various capacities, concentrating on work with the youth. I myself lead the Military Ministries, am a scripture “reader” on Sunday mornings and have done stints with the drama team for the youth.
For fourteen years, I have practiced law in Springfield and its surrounding communities. Presently, my practice focuses on insurance defense, small business counseling and litigation, and public entity representation. I am currently a Member of my own firm.
I look forward to serving the 136th with passion and integrity and would count your support as an honor.
