Advising Employers, Insurers, and Third-Party Administrators
Workers’ compensation law has changed over the years, making administration of the law less simple than before. For employers, obtaining experienced legal advice in the area of workers’ compensation is not only a wise business decision, the law generally requires a lawyer to be present in any legal proceeding before the state agency that administers the state’s workers’ compensation law.

Our attorneys have custom-tailored legal solutions under Missouri and Kansas law to meet the workers’ compensation needs of our clients. Our services include opinion letters, negotiation and drafting of settlement agreements, and aggressive representation at all levels of settings and hearings, as well as appeals.
