St. Louis native Colleen Garvey joined Branstetter, Stranch & Jennings in 2022. Ms. Garvey previously worked at a top insurance defense firm in St. Louis, where she primarily practiced in premises liability, personal injury and catastrophic loss claims. She brings a unique perspective and desire to strongly advocate for those who have experienced injustice or harm.

Ms. Garvey graduated magna cum laude in 2016 from Rockhurst University in Kansas City, Missouri, with a B.A. in Psychology and a B.A. in English, and competed as a collegiate scholar athlete on the Rockhurst women’s golf team.
