Our Comfort Zone:
High-Stakes Litigation and Trials.
A national reach from the heart of the Midwest, Wagstaff & Cartmell has a strong reputation and broad experience throughout the country in high-stakes litigation and trial practice. Of equal importance, we deeply value our reputation with the Kansas City bar, bench, and our many longstanding, respected clients in the Kansas City area.
Lawyers at Wagstaff & Cartmell serve in leadership roles in major, multi-district litigations, from California to New York and many points between. We have been lead counsel in bellwether trials in nationally prominent cases, and lead counsel in jury trials in many locally prominent cases. We work with experts, mediators, and consultants nationally and locally.
Our practice spans a wide range of complex civil litigation, from professional liability to business litigation to products liability and catastrophic personal injury. In all areas, we thrive in the court room and in preparing to get there. We value efficiency, creativity, and most of all, credibility. Our team includes many attorneys trained in large law firms, former federal law clerks, and attorneys consistently recognized by peers as among the best in the profession.
