Crista Hogan

Welcome to

Designing and developing a website that is useful to our members and the public was a top priority of the SMBA leadership.

In designing the website, we referenced the mission established by the founders of our bar, October 17, 1903: The object of the Bar Association of Springfield Missouri is to maintain the Honor and Dignity of the Profession of Law, to cultivate social intercourse among its members, and for the promotion of legal science, and the administration of Justice.  

The way we practice law and access information in this 21st Century were surely unimaginable to our founding colleagues. But much has remained the same. You will find threads of our organization’s founding mission throughout this website. Ultimately, I hope that accomplishes those one-hundred-year-old, but still fresh goals of promoting the best parts of this profession, cultivating interaction among our members, and advancing the cause of justice.
