My entire legal life has been in spent in Kansas City. The first four years in the profession were spent working for a mid-size firm and a large firm doing defense work. I defended corporations in environmental disputes, product defect cases and personal injury cases. After four years I took my knowledge of the law and the defense perspective and flipped sides, opening a plaintiff's personal injury and employment firm. There is no comparison between working for a corporation and working for an individual. I have spent the past several years representing individuals who have been injured by the wrongdoing of others, which includes sexual harassment and assault, race discrimination, disability discrimination, retaliation and wrongful termination, among other employment-related claims. I also represent children who have been victims of harassment and abuse, often sexual in nature, in the public school setting.

I value my clients and truly enjoy working with each individual. I enjoy seeing them get a fair result, and there is a feeling of satisfaction when your client, who was once hopeless, feels that they have received justice.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:
Comfort Level - Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?
Credentials - How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?
Cost - How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?
City - Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?
