Why WM Law?

We've been there too.

When W M Law’s president, Jeff Wagoner, was 13 his family lost  their family farm. While his childhood included financial hardship, the community rallied around them to help his family cope. This experience inspired him to become a Kansas City bankruptcy lawyer.

W M Law has been serving Kansas City for over 20 years and has four offices around Kansas City that are ready to provide you with caring service and support in your time of need.
