Rich (admitted 1921); and son of former Kansas Supreme Court Justice and former Kansas State Senator Harold S. Herd (admitted 1946). Mike has embraced their legacy in devoting his career toward the advancement of his profession and serving the community while delivering high-quality legal services to his clients.
