Protecting Legal Rights in Missouri and Kansas

Eminent Domain · Real Estate Law · Business Law

I have served the Kansas City Metro area for over 30 years. If you have a legal concern regarding eminent domain, real estate or business law, I encourage you to call 816-221-1700 or contact me online to schedule a consultation.

Eminent Domain

Many governments of the world, such as the Nazis, have a history of taking their citizens' property. The "takings clause" of the U.S. Constitution protects our citizens, saying that the government cannot take private property without giving "Just Compensation".

If you live in a place where the government, highway authority, power company or another entity wants to take your land, it is important to seek the help of an experienced lawyer. With over 30 years of experience, I have an understanding of eminent domain law and I will represent you in negotiations, legal filings, trials and appeals to protect your right to fair compensation.

Real Estate Law

Whether you need legal guidance regarding a real estate transaction, dispute or other matter, I have the experience you should have on your side in negotiations as well as in the courtroom. Please contact me if you have concerns regarding any of these real estate legal issues:

Business Law

With over 30 years of legal experience, I help business owners with their legal needs. If you are starting a new company, I will help you choose the right business formation to minimize your personal liability and provide the protection you need. I am also available to help you draft contracts of all kinds, including contracts with suppliers, with employees, with distributors, raising capital, occupational licenses, ownership and holding issues, collections of business litigation, breach of contract cases and defenses, collection for goods and services, non-compete/trade secrets, employee benefits, estate planning for shareholders or closely-held corporations, general corporate actions and operations financing the business, intellectual property, including trademark and copyright, control mechanisms of organizations (directors, officers, by-laws, etc.), buy/sell agreements and purchases and sales of businesses, intellectual property. In addition, I can assist with leases and commercial real estate, and I will represent you in court if conflicts arise.
