Carmody MacDonald offers business, individual, and litigation services to its clients. The firm’s clients coordinate among their multi-focus areas to provide legal services in addressing virtually every aspect of each client’s corporate and individual needs.
“[Mogerman] brings decades of high-profile experience and proven results in difficult and complex family matters,” Ron Rucker, principal and a managing partner at Carmody MacDonald, said. “We have developed a great deal of respect for Cary, both personally and professionally, over the past 30 years and we are looking forward to working with him.”
Listed in the directory, “Best Lawyers in America – Family Law,” for the past 20 years and named “St. Louis’ Lawyer of the Year – Family Law,” two different times, Mogerman’s practice focuses on “complex” matrimonial cases which involve business owners, professional practices, trusts, and executive compensation in both privately held and publicly traded corporations.
Mogerman received his J.D. at Washington University-St. Louis and his Bachelor of Arts in History and Political Science at Drake University in Iowa. He currently serves as vice president of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers and as a member of the executive committee of the American College of Family Trial Lawyers.

He is a Fellow of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers and also served as a member of the board of directors of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers Foundation.
“I have always loved being around great lawyers. I have been impressed for many years by the number of extremely capable lawyers at Carmody MacDonald, in so many different legal specialties, and I think it will be stimulating for me, and also very helpful to my clients, to have so much substantive expertise in many areas that arise within a family law case, at our disposal,” Mogerman said. “I’m really looking forward to it.”
In addition to his book, which he co-authored with Joseph Kodner, A Guide to Divorce in Missouri – Simple Answers to Complex Questions, Mogerman is one of the 100 Diplomates of the American College Family Trial Lawyers.
Mogerman has been recognized as the Show Me State’s “Super Lawyer” and designated a “Top 50” lawyer in St. Louis and a “Top 100” lawyer by the Missouri/Kansas “Super Lawyers” publication.
His longtime colleagues, attorneys Mary E. Niemire and Joseph J. Kodner, will be joining him in the move to Carmody MacDonald P.C.
