In 1939, Howard’s wife, Macye, joint the firm.  Macye Maness was one of the first female legal practitioners in the State of Missouri.  Not only did Macye break astonishing barriers by become an attorney in 1939, she went on to become the prosecuting attorney, State Representative and Circuit Court Judge.

In 1974, Howard and Macy’s son, Randy Maness joined the firm followed in 1984 by his wife, Siegrid Smith Maness.  Randy and Siegrid have carried on the firm’s tradition of active participation in judicial and civic affairs.
