About me

Go to for resume, history and information about me and my FIrm, Wallace and Saunders. In 2013 Wallace and Saunders celebrates 50 years of representing a wide variety of business clients in litigation, risk management, general consultation, problem solving both locally and nationally.  We have offices in Kansas City, MO, Overland Park, KS, Wichita , KS and Springfield, MO.


I joined the Firm in 1973 as a Law Clerk, passed the Bar in 1974 and have enjoyed the entirety of my career at Wallace and Saunders. Over the years I have had extensive experience in construction, business, commercial, real estate and zoning matters as well as litigation in all of these areas. However, over the last 25 years my practice has focused the majority of my time in Construction, primarily representing Architectural and Engineering Firms. My representation encompasses business and risk management, insurance issues, contracts, tort litigation and general counsel.


I am licensed in Kansas and Missouri before the State and Federal Bars, as well as the 10th Federal Circuit Court of Appeals and the United States Supreme Court.


I currently serve (2012) as President-Elect of the Kansas City Metropolitan Bar Association, a professional association with nearly 5000 members.


I am a native of the Kansas City area and have been active in civic affairs for decades serving in numerous capacities on Boards and Task Forces as

an appointed memeber.


I am currently active in the ABA, Kansas and Missouri Bar Associations, KCMBA,  and the Johnson County Bar Association.


Further information is available on our website noted above. I am always grateful and appreciative of the opportunity to meet and discuss potential representation with anyone on any matter. Our firm is very proud of it's 50 years of representation of its Clients in Kansas and Missouri as well as nationally.
