As a Missouri native, Lance Drury possesses that unique quality only present in those who choose to live their lives in the state of their birth—a complete and personal investment in the lives of the people of his community. Lance was born and raised in Ste. Genevieve, Missouri, and moved back to the area 22 years ago. By creating a local presence in Ste. Genevieve, Columbia, and Southeast Missouri, Lance brings 28 years of legal experience to the area. Lance has an undergraduate degree in political science and economics, a law degree, and an MBA from Washington University in St. Louis with an emphasis in finance. Lance was driven to become an attorney by his desire to serve others in need, and he has discovered that he loves the challenge of finding the perfect solution for his clients’ needs. This is reflected in the type of law he’s now focusing on—helping his clients solve their IRS problems. Having traveled to such far-away places as Eastern Europe, Japan and the Caribbean, Lance appreciates the ties that bring him back to Southeast Missouri. He’s a member of the Ste. Genevieve Chamber of Commerce and has served on the Planning and Zoning Board for the city of Ste. Genevieve as well.
