2023 40 Under 40: Brittany Perry

Evans & Dixon LLC

Posted online

Brittany Perry says she’s determined to do as much good as possible. That goal permeates her life and work.

As a senior associate attorney at Evans & Dixon, Perry, 31, helps clients tackle challenging litigation, like representing an employer whose employee broke his ankles after falling from the ceiling and a client whose yacht was unlawfully detained. “And yes,” she says, “I got the boat back.”

Her practice covers workers’ compensation defense, civil litigation and business law.

After realizing the need for female attorneys to support survivors of domestic violence, last year she co-founded Surveillance for Survivors. The program partners with Harmony House to give free surveillance cameras to survivors of stalking and domestic abuse.

She has also served as president of Isabel’s House Associate Board and the young lawyer’s chair for the Southern Missouri Women’s Lawyer society.

Your proudest moment?  I had a client whose stalker was using the legal system as a tool to continue their abuse. After I got done with him, he dismissed on all counts and crawled back to whatever hole he came from. My client told me I gave her courage, but she was the courageous one.  

What about your job would shock people? The amount of people who allege they are severely injured while posting completely contrary evidence on social media. 

Best piece of advice you’ve ever received? Work hard and don’t let anyone push you around.
