Review John Boyd

About Me

I have been counsel to the Missouri AFL-CIO for over 25 years, and have represented people and their families who have been injured or killed.  I am a founder and a past president of a national organization of attorneys who strive to make a difference for those who are injured or made sick from their employment--Workers' Injury Law & Advocacy Group.  Besides being a member of the NFL Players Association panel of attorneys, I am a member of the National Academy of Social Insurance--a non-partisan organization which provides academic analysis and research in areas such as social security, Medicare, Unemployment, and, Workers' Compensation. 


Our firm continues to grow and expand areas of practice.  This year, we changed the name to Boyd, Kenter, Thomas & Parrish, LLC.
