Two Ozarks Elder Law LLC attorneys exited to start a new firm.
The Elder Law Group LLC began doing business on Aug. 26, said Danielle Kincaid, who’s a partner in the firm with Angela Myers. Nicole Lindsey, who was a colleague with Kincaid and Myers at Ozarks Elder Law, also joined The Elder Law Group. Kincaid said three Ozarks Elder Law paralegals also will be joining The Elder Law Group.
Kincaid said an “opportunity arose for professional growth” for her and Myers. Kincaid is scheduled to be honored next month as a member of Springfield Business Journal’s 2019 class of Trusted Advisers.
“The partnership is a natural fit for us to follow our passion for elder law and continue to provide excellent legal counsel to our clients in southwest Missouri,” Kincaid said via email. “Our paramount goal is to ensure our clients are taken care of during this transition.”
Operated at 1730 E. Republic Road, Ste. F, The Elder Law Group focuses on estate planning, probate, asset protection, nursing home planning and trust administration, according to a news release. Similar services are offered at Ozarks Elder Law, according to its website.
Kincaid said she was unsure how many clients would switch over to The Elder Law Group.
Ozarks Elder Law underwent an ownership transition in the past year. Lori Rook bought out the shares from former partner Jessica Kruse, who left in August 2018 after she was elected as an associate circuit judge for Christian County, SBJ previously reported.
Reached by email this morning, Rook said Kincaid and Myers left Ozarks Elder Law this month.
“We did not share the same vision for the future, but we wish them the best on their new endeavors,” Rook said. “While a few of our team members have changed, our commitment to southwest Missouri has not. Our team will continue to provide excellence in elder law and estate planning at all of our five locations in Springfield, Ozark, Nixa, Marshfield and Joplin.”
