Ozarks Elder Law
Springfield-based Ozarks Elder Law expanded its footprint in Nixa on June 1 by moving to 912 W. Mount Vernon St., Ste. 912, after three years at 811 N. Main St., said owner and managing attorney Lori Rook. It’s the second move for the firm in Nixa, where it opened an office five years ago. The new office occupies 2,400 square feet in Stonecrest Plaza in space formerly occupied by MacPherson Law LLC, as owner Ashleigh MacPherson announced on Facebook she’s downsizing her practice. Ozarks Elder Law also purchased MacPherson Law’s equipment and furniture, Rook said, noting she and MacPherson are longtime friends. Rook said the new Nixa office is roughly double the size of its former site. She declined to disclose relocation costs or the rate of her three-year lease with landlord Victor Paulik. The company employs 23, including six attorneys. It also has offices in Springfield, Bolivar, Branson, Joplin, Lebanon, Marshfield, Ozark and Republic.

Martin said Skin Wax Ink fills 2,500 square feet in the second story of the building she owns, which is occupied on the ground level by Soozeezbeez Honey Beetique. She declined to disclose relocation and renovation costs. Martin, who has 16 years of experience as an esthetician and five years as a permanent cosmetic artist, said Skin Wax Ink employs seven.
