About me

Cary is licensed to practice law in both the state and federal courts of Kansas and Missouri. He is committed to helping clients get a fresh start and regain financial stability. Prior to opening The Smalley Law Firm, LLC in 2011 Cary worked as an attorney at a highly respected Kansas City law firm since 2005.

Cary received both his undergraduate degree and law degree from The University of Kansas. During law school he was a volunteer with VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance) preparing tax returns for lower income individuals and also served as an officer of the Phi Alpha Delta legal fraternity.

Cary is a member of The United Methodist Church of the Resurrection and serves as a volunteer budgeter at Community LINC. He and his wife reside in Overland Park with their two dogs.
