The Law Firm of Barbara E. Hecht, P.C.-Olathe, Kansas

I'm Barbara Hecht, an attorney with more than 40 years of experience in courtrooms throughout the Kansas City metropolitan area and surrounding portions of both Kansas and Missouri. As a solo practitioner, my clients never need to worry that their case will be handed off to an inexperienced associate. I work directly with each individual, and I personally represent them in every matter related to their case. I also have an experienced staff that shares my dedication to this work and the people our law firm represents.

I take my responsibilities as an advocate very seriously as well and stay abreast of changes in the law that relate to my practice. I am also constantly looking for ways to improve both the way I provide services to my clients and the external resources I use to do that, including professional mediators, arbitrators, therapists, psychologists, physicians and other specialists.

Family Law and Divorce ∙ Wills and Estates ∙ Criminal Law ∙ Bankruptcy

The majority of the work I do today involves resolving family law and divorce-related issues or taking care of legal needs that involve estate planning.

My family law practice is comprehensive and includes divorce and related issues such as child custody, property division and support. I have particularly extensive experience with child custody disputes involving same-sex couples or grandparents, post-divorce modification and enforcement needs, marital agreements and the unique legal issues faced by domestic partners, same-sex couples and other members of the LGBT community. I also help victims of domestic violence to obtain protection orders and defend individuals accused of domestic violence in both civil and criminal proceedings. Lastly, I have been an advocate of mediated solutions in family law cases throughout my career and have been using the collaborative law approach to achieve those ends for the better part of a decade.

My wills and estates practice is also broad. In essence, I help clients identify specific needs and goals, and then I draft and/or review specific legal documents, including wills, trusts, powers of attorney, living wills, testamentary trusts and beneficiary deeds. I handle other matters of estate planning as well, including petitions for guardianship over minors and disabled adults. One of the more unique assets I offer is extensive experience with family law and estate planning issues affecting domestic partners, same-sex couples and other members of the LGBT community

I also have a great deal of experience helping clients to resolve legal problems that involve criminal law, juvenile law, traffic violations, bankruptcy, debt collection defense, real estate and business.

In every matter, I do my best to make people feel comfortable, informed and confident. I listen, explain and answer client concerns before they leave my office. I also try to make certain that our time together is free from interruptions. Throughout the process, I take pride in being accessible, responding promptly to phone calls and e-mails and in keeping clients informed as to their cases, which includes sending clients regular itemized billings and copies of communications related to their case.
