Jay P. Cummings, Attorney

An experienced lawyer who serves local families in Missouri

With more than 25 years of family law experience serving local residents, Springfield attorney Jay P. Cummings is known as a devoted advocate of individuals and families dealing with the stress and worry of divorce. He has strong relationships with fellow attorneys in the Springfield area, including members of the firm Leland L. Gannaway, a respected business lawyer, and David Back, a highly effective criminal defense attorney.

A Springfield attorney with a practical approach to divorce

Mr. Cummings is devoted to finding, if possible, amicable resolutions to divorce issues, short of costly trial. In his experience, he has found that courts tend to look kindly on spouses who attempt to find common ground, especially those who act in the best interests of their children. Rather than focusing on winning or losing, he believes that successful divorces are those in which custody agreements preserve important bonds between parents and children.

Mr. Cummings is a member of the Springfield Metropolitan Bar Association, the Missouri Bar and the Missouri Association of Trial Lawyers.
