Our Office

At the Law Office of Marta J. Papa, our mission is to help you through the divorce process with the least amount of stress possible. We offer a relaxed, comfortable, and supportive environment that is private and safe. To achieve this goal, we moved our offices from the 20th floor of a skyscraper (with people, exposure, and little privacy) to a private historical building built just after the St. Louis World’s Fair. Our new building is in a secluded neighborhood where you can sit in comfortable, overstuffed chairs next to the fireplace. Or, if you prefer, you can sit on the veranda with a cup of hot coffee and Godiva chocolates. No matter your choice, you will find comfort while you receive legal advice and plan your new life here.
