Ashley Madison customers revealed: Missouri's PalmerOliver firm is consistent; both partners appear as paying customers at Ashley Madison Web site

Craig Oliver
A prominent two-man law firm in Springfield, Missouri, holds this distinction: Both of its partners are paying customers at the Ashley Madison extramarital-affairs Web site. How does any work get done at the Law Offices of PalmerOliver? We're not sure, but the feelings of wives and children do not appear to be a high priority.

We've already shown that Robert M.N. Palmer, 2016 president of the Springfield Metropolitan Bar Association, is an Ashley Madison devotee. Now we learn that Palmer's partner, Craig R. Oliver, is on there, too. Gotta love that kind of consistency.

Oliver has handled some big-time cases over the years. From his bio at the firm Web site:

Craig R. Oliver has represented clients in complex litigation matters for the past 30 years. He has tried more than 80 jury trials as lead attorney and has tried cases to verdict or judgment in 6 states. He has obtained jury verdicts for his clients in excess of $3 million and has obtained numerous settlements for his clients in excess of $1 million. He is an AV rated attorney by Martindale Hubbell and has been certified as a Civil Trial Advocate by the National Board of Trial Advocacy. He has been a frequent lecturer on civil trial topics and is a member of the Board of Governors of the Missouri Association of Trial Attorneys.

This is from a description of the PalmerOliver firm at 417 Magazine:

The Law Offices of PalmerOliver P.C. is a successful general litigation firm with more than 70 years experience in handling a broad spectrum of cases, including personal injury, interstate truck collisions, medical malpractice, commercial litigation, automobile collisions, product liability and wrongful death cases. Their attorneys have tried hundreds of cases in more than 30 states against some of the largest corporations in America. The firm has obtained millions of dollars in settlements and verdicts for its clients and their families. In 2016, Robert Palmer will become President of the Springfield Metropolitan Bar Association. Craig Oliver is a member of the Board of Governors of the Missouri Association of Trial Attorneys.

Palmer is married to Brent Bothwell Palmer. She filed for divorce in 1994, but the parties reconciled, and the case was dismissed.

Oliver's personal situation is a little less clear. Public records available to us indicate he is (or was) married to Patricia L. Oliver. Both show an address of 2125 S CROSS TIMBERS CT, SPRINGFIELD MO 65809 3550. We have found no record of a divorce or a death, so it appears they still are husband and wife.

We twice contacted Craig Oliver, seeking comment for this post. He did not respond to our queries.

These guys are smart enough to win all these cases, but stupid enough to sign up for Ashley Madison? SMH.
