Anna SandersonAnna Sanderson

Joplin Attorney

Anna’s passion for helping others arose from personal tragedy. When Anna was only fifteen years old, her father was killed in a trucking accident as a result of the negligent acts of others. Her family sought justice and help from the law firm now known as Johnson, Vorhees & Martucci. Roger Johnson’s passion and perseverance in holding those responsible for her father’s death inspired Anna to follow in that honorable profession. Anna decided she wanted to devote her life to helping those in crisis.

After college, Anna began working for the firm as an intern, where she began learning the ins and outs of the legal profession.

Anna understands the worry, pain, and stress felt by those who have suffered tragedy, and she takes comfort in helping clients overcome the obstacles in front of them and get back to living their lives. Her unique perspective allows her to work with clients in forming their goals and obtaining closure as soon as possible. Anna believes that communication is key, and she will always give her clients open feedback and advice.

“Life is a beautiful thing, but I know firsthand that tragedy can strike quickly. When it is difficult to take the next step, or even to know what the next step is, one of the most important things is having someone on your side fighting for you so you can work on putting one foot in front of the other. I am proud to be a part of the JVM team because we fight for justice and strive to give our clients the closure they need to take the next step in their lives.”

Outside of work, Anna enjoys spending time with the loves of her life, her husband, Brandon, and their four-legged “kids”, including two cats and three dogs.
