Misty represents companies facing litigation in high-risk venues across southern Illinois.

As a member of the firm's Railroad practice, she advocates for major railroads in FELA cases and other personal injury actions involving major trauma or fatalities at grade crossings. Misty has second-chaired multiple trials in St. Clair County that have resulted in defense verdicts. She also plays a lead role in the drafting and research of strategic summary judgments, many of which have led to the dismissal of claims.

Misty also represents railroad, manufacturing, shipping, and tobacco companies in class actions, general commercial litigation and toxic tort actions, including those alleging exposure to asbestos.
