Ive had the pleasure of working side by side with Steve Gorny with my malpractice case for the past couple years. The whole time I always felt informed. I completely understood things, but if I didn't Steve would explain things to be sure I did. I believe not only was Steve extremely professional, but he has heart. He cares about the people he represents and does his absolute best to win! He has a huge amount of respect from my family. I felt completely comfortable and reassured throughout. I am entirely pleased with hiring Steve for my case. I would recommend him 1000 times over. In daily life alone its hard to find honest, compassionate people...but to find a legal representative who has those same qualities and does what he says he will, is truly humbling. Steve is an amazing lawyer, human being and I can't say it enough. Thank you.

Stephen represented me in a medical malpractice case that went to mediation.
His communication with me, and with the opposing party's attorneys, was always thorough and timely. In short, I was always aware of where the suit was in the legal process, every step of the way, and had a clear understanding of the opposing arguments, thanks to Stephen's updates.
The final settlement was quite acceptable to me, and I think everyone walked away from the mediation table with a feeling of just and fair resolution.
I have, and would, recommend Stephen's representation to anyone in need of a malpractice attorney.
Did I mention that he had Arthur Bryant's BBQ cater the mediation meeting?
That alone puts him at the pinnacle of legal representation in the Kansas City area!

We feel incredibly fortunate to have been represented by Steve Gorny in our personal injury case. We are very satisfied with our outcome. Steve and his professional staff were attentive and responsive to all of our questions and concerns. In our opinion, we could not have found a more caring, personable and professional attorney. At all times, we were kept informed and this allowed us to have a high degree of confidence about our representation. We would highly recommend his legal services without reservation.

Steve and I have gotten to know each other over the years as we teach other lawyers how to handle trucking cases at seminars across the country. There is no question that Steve is extremely sharp, competent, and a force to be reconed with in a trucking case. I have not hesitated to recommend him to clients and other lawyers.
