Horace Doyal II

Born and raised in rural Arkansas, Horace joined the United States Air Force shortly after high school. There he worked in logistics management and was able to serve his country while seeing the world. During his ten years in the Air Force, he was fortunate to experience living in California, Alaska, and Germany before choosing to settle in the St. Louis area.


After leaving the Air Force, Horace attended McKendree University and received his Masters Degree in Special Education.  He then became a special education teacher for several years. He taught all grade levels, mostly working with students with Autism Spectrum Disorders.


Wanting to further his education, Horace then attended the University of Missouri School of Law. While at Mizzou Law, Horace interned twice with the Missouri State Public Defender's office, gaining experience in criminal law in St. Charles, Warren, and Lincoln counties.  He also worked for a year for a small law firm, gaining experience in workers' compensation, personal injury, and employment discrimination law.  After graduating law school, Horace worked as an assistant public defender and developed more skill and experience in criminal law.


Horace's goal as an attorney is to help guide his clients through difficult events and decisions and get them the best outcome possible.  When not working, he enjoys spending time with his two sons and enjoying all of the outdoor activities that Missouri has to offer.
