About Me

As a former Kansas prosecutor, Assistant Attorney General, and General Counsel, I take great pride in running a company that is ever mindful of the needs of its customers.  Our motto is simple, we keep our promises, provide prompt, quality service at a fair price, and always strive to do what is right by our customers, peers, subcontractors, and business partners.  Whether negotiating, drafting, and finalizing contracts, acquisitions, or other business ventures, or establishing lines of credit, handling customer concerns, or working through the claims process with our partner insurers, my day is always exciting, and is guided by the underlying precept:  We, at Covenant, treat others the way we would want to be treated, and look forward to serving you.

  • Ruhe Catherine Wadud Rutter

    I endorse this lawyer. He is very knowledgable. Child custody issues are very emotional and he is able to handle these issues very professionally. Even if your goal is to avoid court, he thinks like a litigator and is prepared for court if need be. He is NOT the sort of person you want to try and beat in chess because he is always a few steps ahead of you.
