Based in Kansas City, we represent people who need trial lawyers. Some have suffered significant injuries or wrongful death due to trucking and railroad accidents, medical malpractice or faulty products. Others have commercial cases or business cases, and need the unique blend of talent that we offer.

We focus on cases that are complex and require trial lawyers who are motivated to work for clients who need the best representation available.


The choice of a lawyer is an important decision and should not be based solely on advertisements.
