Barbara E. Hecht, P.C. Law Firm Overview

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

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

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. The majority of the work I do today involves handling family law and divorce-related issues or estate-related legal needs for a diverse range of clients. 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.

As a solo practitioner, I work directly with each of my clients and 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.

Spotlight on Family Law

Generally speaking, I focus on helping clients who are trying to create a new and better future. I take these clients and their legal issues as they are, and I work to develop legal strategies and solutions that are tailored to fit their needs and lives, not mine.

I offer experience with a wide range of family issues, including divorce and related issues such as child custody, property division and support. I also have extensive experience with a number of narrower issues, including child custody as it relates to same-sex couples or grandparents, post-divorce modifications or enforcement, premarital agreements and the unique family law and estate planning needs of domestic partners, same-sex couples and other members of the LGBT community. I also handle domestic violence cases and protection orders, providing a safe environment for victims of domestic violence while helping them to obtain protection orders, and defending 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.
