Pamela Meanes, a partner in the firm’s Business Litigation practice, is among a group of distinguished legal professionals from Missouri chosen as a 2014 Women’s Justice Awards winner by Missouri Lawyers Weekly. The annual awards recognize top women lawyers, judges, law students and legal professionals in the state for their contributions to the profession as practitioners or as ambassadors for the profession.
Pam was named as an award winner in the Litigation Practitioner category, one of 10 categories recognized as part of the awards. Pam was one of only nine lawyers from the entire state of Missouri selected as outstanding Litigation Practitioners.
Pam is the president-elect of the National Bar Association, the nation’s oldest and largest association of African American attorneys. Pam was elected to the position in 2013 after serving in leadership positions in the organization for more than six years, including as vice president of finance, deputy general counsel, editor-in-chief of its magazine, and regional director of NBA Region VIII, which covers Arkansas, Iowa, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota and South Dakota.
A former president of the Mound City Bar Association, Pam has nearly 20 years of experience as a civil litigator. She has represented corporations, public agencies, and financial institutions in a variety of high-profile jury trials and commercial disputes. She has led the trial of a multimillion-dollar breach of contract case and negotiated the acquisition of more than 200 complex land deals for a major regional transportation agency.
Pam and other winners will be honored at an April 24 ceremony at the Four Seasons Hotel in St. Louis.
