Danna McKitrick may be the law firm you’ll be proud to call your workplace.

• Interested in expanding your career with a growing firm?
• Want to work with professionals who actually appreciate each other?
• Ready for a challenging position in the legal profession where the “challenge” itself isn’t just figuring out how to “get more done in a day”?

In your career search, you’ve probably found that law firms vary quite a lot in their culture and service approaches. At Danna McKitrick, we offer intelligent and enthusiastic candidates a genuinely friendly and collegial atmosphere—one where you are inspired and challenged by the work quality and given the opportunity to truly contribute to meeting the needs of our diverse clientele.

We are big on quality. Quality of care and service to clients. Quality in our work product, quality of life and future for those who work here. And quality of contribution to our communities.
And we do our best to continuously uphold the values of respect, integrity, and pride in our work and in our actions. Daily work at Danna McKitrick demonstrates that, regardless of job title, we communicate with each other often, candidly, on a first name basis, and with an open-door policy.

Unlike most firms, our litigation and transactional practices aren’t strictly compartmentalized. Almost all our attorneys collaborate across “department lines” and many of us have practices founded on significant experience in both transactional law and litigation.

Especially as a new attorney, you are free to work across departments resulting in exposure to many service types, client scenarios, and industries for your greater development, overall.

If you’re an experienced attorney, we supply the resources to back you up, supporting the types of services you most want to provide, and the opportunity to take your career to the next level. You’ll find colleagues with attitudes and practice strengths you aren’t hesitant to refer to your most valued clients.

If you’re a principal-level attorney with a great client base and looking to make a lateral move, Danna McKitrick, P.C. may be a good fit for you. Ron Danna and Mike McKitrick would be happy to speak with you!

You’ll enjoy having a voice, receiving outstanding support through our administrative team, led by our Director of Administration, Jim Baalmann, who is an MBA, and growing your practice through our very strong marketing culture with planning, coaching, and PR resources available to you. Danna McKitrick is committed to helping each attorney maximize his or her career potential.

People who work here are also encouraged to support our community and local charities and we play a lead role in addressing unmet legal needs through our pro bono work.

A fulfilling legal career may await you at Danna McKitrick. Give us a call today at 314.726.1000.

You are more than just an attorney. Of course YOU knew that. But do the other firms you’ve interviewed or worked with?

Welcome to a firm that not only understands, but also values, that you have a personal life along with your career. In fact, we know it is essential in order for you to be a well-rounded, satisfied, and effective professional.

As an attorney at our firm, balance is achieved through trust that you will complete your work and effectively manage and meet the expectations of those who have assigned it to you. Specifically, you’ll notice that our work policies and hours accommodate the demands of life today. We also respect and welcome the diversity encompassed by each of our team members.

An environment of collegiality, cooperation, and recognition promotes job satisfaction. Growth opportunities occur through the offering of a wide range of experiences. Learning happens because Danna McKitrick’s principals are completely accessible and are great about delegating interesting work. Associates are entrusted with direct client responsibility and, with training, support and encouragement, take part in marketing and recruiting efforts.

Women have been principals of Danna McKitrick for over twenty years and our female principals routinely serve on the firm’s executive committee. Ruth Binger is currently serving on the committee. Cheryl Beebe-Snell and Barbara Maille (retired) have also served on the committee. Ruth also received a Lawyer’s Lawyer Award for being such a great mentor and role model, both within the firm and beyond it.

Creating and maintaining an environment where our people are happy is a huge priority. First, hiring talented, good-hearted people is essential. And helps us attract more of the same. Then, inspiring people to stay is key. We do this through continuous learning opportunities, associate incentives, and encouraging an open culture.

Good benefits don’t hurt. Our benefit package is competitive: health/dental, long- and short-term disability, profit sharing 401(k) plan, and paid parking.

We frequently celebrate our team members’ accomplishments and build team spirit with staff appreciation days, parties, and other rewards for the excellent contributions people make both inside and outside of the firm.

In addition to this, Danna McKitrick offers a modern workplace with state-of-the art equipment and technology. It is simply a terrific place to grow your legal career. Contact us today —we look forward to meeting you.

Our firm is located in a central suburb only a 15 minute drive from downtown St. Louis. A cosmopolitan city and business district, Clayton features beautifully-lined streets and 70+ acres of passive and active park areas that complement its upscale neighborhoods, specialty boutiques, shops, and cafes. Clayton, rich in art and sophisticated culture, still manages to maintain Midwest values and quality of life. Read more about the city of Clayton.

Because Clayton is so centrally located — near all major arteries around St. Louis — accessibility to our office is easy. From the nearby urban areas of the Central West End, Soulard, and University City to the more rural, suburban areas of Chesterfield, Augusta wine country, or nearby Illinois – all tastes, styles, and preferences are represented in both new home developments and historic residences.

Clayton’s bustling business district is home to seventy Forbes and Fortune 500 headquarters and branch offices. University life keeps the area hopping too with nearby Washington University and Saint Louis University, both with exceptional law schools.

Originally settled by Pierre Laclede and August Choteau in 1764, St. Louis is most famously known as the Gateway to the West — the launching point for early explorers and westward emigrants. Any history buff will find years’ worth of places to visit and things to see in the vicinity.

St. Louis’ charm ranges from the blues clubs of the historic Soulard district, to the cobble-stoned streets of the mighty Mississippi downtown riverfront, to our lovely Forest Park, developed at the turn of the century to draw and awe attendees of the 1904 World’s Fair. With winding trails for runners, bikers and skaters, a public golf course, several ponds, streams and lots of resident wild life, Forest Park still hosts exciting festivities such as The Great Forest Park Balloon Race and international festivals. The park is also home to a popular outdoor amphitheater featuring stage productions all summer long, one of the nation’s last free zoos, and a terrific museum.

St. Louis is notorious for being a proud sports city boasting the Cardinals and the Blues. Enjoy our downtown sports complex!

With many rivers, lakes, rolling hills, and wooded areas, Missouri and Illinois also offer tremendous options for outdoor sports lovers who enjoy boating, fishing, hiking, hunting, river rafting, and camping.

St. Louis is a great place to live and work!
