Practice Area: Personal injury
Law School: City University of New York
After earning a master’s degree in public health from Saint Louis University in 2006, Patricia Llanos noticed that health policies affected people every bit as much as — if not more so than — individual behavior. She resolved to ameliorate that situation by becoming an attorney, and she earned her law degree from the City University of New York in 2014. Within two years, she had landed at Brown & Crouppen, where she negotiates and settles disputes with health-insurance companies for clients in Missouri, Illinois and Kansas. As the sole attorney there who speaks Spanish, she helps Spanish-speaking clients on pre-litigation claims, and has led the firm’s Diversity and Inclusion Committee. She also volunteers as an advisor at the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services.
