The attorneys at our firm have achieved record settlements and record verdicts in both Kansas and Missouri. Due to the tragic nature of many personal injury cases, the publicity that these cases sometimes garner, and the privacy of our clients, we choose not to display our victories and results. Although exemplary results have been obtained by our firm in this area of practice, we realize that comes at a tremendous cost to the lives of the clients we represent and their families. No dollar amount can ever bring back a loved one; no verdict can really give justice to a grieving family. In this area of practice, there are no winners; only a quest for answers to difficult questions and the hopes that a sizeable judgment can change the way companies do business to deter future wrongdoing. Many of our past clients are willing to speak to the care and attention in which we handle these matters. If you have a wrongful death or personal injury case, feel free to contact the office for a past client reference.
