Who We Are

Why is MacPherson Law a Leading Law Firm in the Springfield, MO Metro?

We're Experienced. We're Compassionate. We're Responsive.

A Law Firm That Will Take Your Case Personally

Asked why they chose MacPherson Law over any other law firm in Springfield, MO, our clients often mention that we simply made them feel more comfortable. That reflects the beliefs that led Ashleigh MacPherson to practice law in the Springfield area in the first place: “Most clients are in uncharted waters after an accident, and they deserve regular updates and prompt attention. It’s shocking how often we hear about Springfield law firms that don’t return calls for days (or weeks—gasp!), or that fail to update clients on the status of their cases. That’s unacceptable. We strive to reduce our clients’ stress throughout each case."

Motivated by Our Ethics

Motivated not only by our ethical duty to our clients but also by the Golden Rule, MacPherson Law simply treats our clients the way we would hope to be treated if we faced the same situation. Therefore, rather than take on cases in high volume, we choose to remain a smaller law firm that honors the importance and ethical obligation of personalized service and a caring approach.

 I can personally promise people who turn to MacPherson Law that we carefully, patiently inform our clients on what to expect during the initial consultation, provide regular updates and, more importantly, respond promptly to our clients’ calls, often within the hour.

Our Legal Team

Personal Injury Lawyer | Wrongful Death Lawyer | Experienced Paralegal

Perhaps because Attorney Ashleigh MacPherson was raised in the Springfield, MO area herself, the Midwestern principles her parents instilled are evident in all that her law firm does: “My staff and I are blessed with the chance to offer people guidance and help during times that are difficult and often overwhelming. In many cases, our clients face tremendous physical or financial hardship due to an accident or disability—or worse, they have tragically lost a loved one; the ability to relieve some of that burden while working toward the compensation they deserve is very fulfilling. I am also very fortunate that my staff sets the highest standards for themselves in their work. We believe our clients deserve compassionate, competent and responsive counsel, and we strive to live up to that ideal every day.”

Our Law Firm's History

Practiced | Accomplished | Reliable

Before opening the doors at MacPherson Law, LLC, just south of Springfield, MO in Nixa, MO, people had been turning to MacPherson Law Center for help with Personal Injury Law, Wrongful Death Law and Disability Law since the 1980s. Originally led by Attorney Cynthia MacPherson, the local law firm welcomed Ashleigh MacPherson aboard in 2008. Six years later, when Cynthia was appointed by the governor as Associate Circuit Judge of Ozark County, Ashleigh was ready to take the reigns. As Ashleigh puts it, “learning from such an accomplished mentor left me poised to continue MacPherson Law’s tradition of providing clients attentive, outstanding legal services.

What Our Clients Are Saying

Jeff U.

I turned to Ashleigh after my family and I moved to the area and I was unable to find a job because of my profound stutter due to a head injury. She understood that I wanted to provide for my wife and two small boys, but also helped me understand how disability benefits can fit into my plan. Ashleigh encouraged me to continue to look for work, and in the meantime she worked to collect evidence of my disability. She and her staff were always there to take my call and answer any questions I had. It took a little over a year, but after appearing with Ashleigh at a hearing, I got the call that I had been approved for benefits. I have been so happy with Ashleigh, Amy and Tracy and thank them for all the help. They were great!
