Patricia Hagenah is an experience family law mediator and attorney.

Patricia began her practice in family law as an attorney over twenty years ago, and has focused her practice on family law mediation since 1999.

I am an attorney and mediator. I was admitted to the Missouri Bar as a licensed attorney in 1991 and have practiced in the area of family law, estate planning and small business. In 1999, I received my initial mediation training at the University of Missouri School of Law Center for the Study of Dispute Resolution and I have focused my practice in family law mediation.
I received my initial training in mediation in 1999 and have been a mediator for 20 years. My mediation practice is focused primarily on family law mediation. I have been an approved child custody mediator with the Jackson County Family Court for 20 years. I have also been a mediator with the M.A.R.C.H. mediation program (Mediation Achieving Results for Children) for 19 years. In addition, I provide private mediation services for divorce, parenting and child custody issues, child support and guardianship issues.
I graduated from the University of Missouri in 1979 with a B.A. in Political Science and a M.A. in Public Policy Analysis in 1982. I attended Law School at the University of Missouri at Kansas City where I received my J.D. in 1991.
