Firm Recognized as 50 Year Charter Member of the Overland Park Chamber of Commerce

Four years before the Chamber was established, K.B. Wallace entered law practice with Frank Saunders, Jr., occupying a small office above the John Francis Restaurant in downtown Overland Park. They represented six insurance companies in Johnson County and went into competition with 141 active Johnson County attorneys.

Over the years, the firm evolved into Walllace, Saunders, Austin, Brown & Enochs, Chartered. Today, it is simply Wallace Saunders with offices in Overland Park, Kansas City, Wichita and Springfield, Mo.

Saunders was a Chamber Chairman in 1977. Managing Partner Mark McKinzie was Chamber Chairman in 1997 and he continues to lead the Chamber Foundation.
