When Talent Merges with Great Heart You Find Excellence
Here is a letter I wrote Rafe after he represented me. I am not internet savvy at this type of posting so not sure if this is the right way to add a review, but felt so strong about this man's professional excellence I wanted others to know. I have used a few attorneys in my life for different needs. Rafe Foreman is in a league all his own. Rafe, Thank you very much for this update. I really appreciate all the strength and support you provided to me with this. It is still amazing to me how they operated and what this all turned into. I hope to not ever have to deal with these kind of people again, but if I even sense something close will seek your legal assistance from the very beginning. I have no doubt that had I worked with you from the beginning, none of this would have happened and even if I had still ended up losing my farm to them, it would have been a planned process with respect rather than the trama that occured. Thank you for helping me handle the emotional stress of their threats to my reputation and life...I had never had anyone treat me that way before and I was blindsided by them. I am doing well with my new promotion as well thanks to you, I followed through with the application / interview and kept going with my life during all of this. We live and learn...I have learned from this that sometimes you have to proactively fight versus wait til a last resort while relying on process to always promote fairness and for someone else to do what is right...I have also learned that not all attorneys are the same...you care more, work harder and have the talent to excel. I feel very fortunate to have found you. If you don't mind I would like for you to be my attorney for life, although I hope you will never have to work on anything such as this for me ever again. I think you are a tribute to your profession and to humanity...not just for your victories...but for the way you steward your power and heart in your work and your life. Sincerely, Jeanne Ann

Outstanding Attorney and Firm
Rafe and his partners Susan and Kern are without a doubt the most professional and outstanding attorneys I have ever been around or worked with. Combined they have the tenacity and are willing to put in the hard work necessary to be successful for their clients. Additionally, they are completely supportive and honest with their clients. Rafe and his partners are exactly what attorneys are supposed to be and I am glad to call them not only our attorneys but also friends.

One of Top Attorneys in the USA
My Favorite thing about Rafe is that his approach involves taking an aggressive stand when necessary. BUT>>>At the same time, he understands the value of resolving matters amicably if possible. To that end, he often uses alternative dispute resolution methods, such as mediation, in an attempt to negotiate a fair and equitable settlement for his clients. Rafe understands that during the legal process, you will be faced with numerous choices and options. He firmly believes that open communication with his clients is crucial in order to achieve the best possible results. As your attorney, he will keep you informed to help you understand the potential consequences of any choice or legal action. TOGETHER, he will work with YOU to reach decisions designed to achieve the best possible outcome under the circumstances of your case. Rafe will use his education and experience to provide the highest quality, most creative, and strongest representation possible. ~Need an attorney, at least spot him a phone call~if you dont you will regret it!!

"I first met Rafe as a student in his Trial Advocacy class at the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Law. During this same semester, he agreed to mentor me on a research and writing paper that is required for graduation. I wrote the paper on the DWI breath testing machines that are used in Missouri and how they are so fraught with error that the shouldn't be used for any medical, legal or scientific purpose where accuracy is a factor. As crazy as this may seem, I learned more in one semester from Rafe's Trial Advocacy class and mentoring of me during my research of the DWI paper than I did in all of my other law school classes combined. What I learned about Rafe is that he is one of the best trial attorneys-in the world. If I had a personal legal issue that could possibly be brought in front of a jury in the future; there is no one else that I would want representing me than Rafe. I cannot say enough about how good this guy is in front of a jury!"
