    No amount of money can substitute for the loss of your loved one. Wrongful death cases are a highly specialized area of the law, and differ from state to state in their legal requirements. It is important that we get to know you through your loved one. We can then better explain to a jury or to the opposing side the very depth of your loss.

Wrongful death Attorney | May 24
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Tim is one of the most skilled and talented lawyers in Kansas City. He truly cares about each one of his clients and zealously represents them to achieve a fair and just result for each case. Tim is also one of a few lawyers in the country with expertise involving Remington Model 700 rifles. His expertise has allowed him to develop a national plaintiff's practice that few have been able to achieve in Kansas City. I would recommend Tim to anyone you needs a Plaintiff's attorney."
Personal injury Attorney | Nov 14
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I endorse this lawyer."
Litigation Attorney | Apr 21
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"In the quarter center since I began practicing law, I have never come across an attorney with greater integrity, candor and commitment to doing what is right all the time than Tim Monsees. Over the years, Tim has helped many of my clients receive excellent settlements and jury verdicts regarding damages they have incurred. While many litigation attorneys are "all bluff and no stuff" when it comes to actually taking a matter before a jury, Tim is no such advocate. In fact, when you need full-service litigation, from the negotiation/settlement phase all the way through a jury trial resembling a "knife fight in a dirt floor bar in Cajun country," Tim Monsees is the trusted counsel you want to fight (zealously and ethically) on your behalf. In addition, when you retain Tim, you will have the pleasure of working with his paralegal Mari Stewart. She brings a unique combination of compassion, wit and litigation support expertise to each client engagement."
