Always hungry for more knowledge and experience, he is a member of the Litigation, Insurance, Professional Liability, Product Liability and Healthcare Practice Groups.
Richard has tried more than 200 jury cases in the states of Kansas and Missouri. He’s consulted extensively for the defense in attorney malpractice litigation and other insurance-related matters. Richard has been appointed by local judges to act as Special Master in contentious lawsuits. He has been invited to speak to bar associations, local and state dental groups, and as an annual guest lecturer at UMKC School of Law.
