WHO WE ARE
Joseph, Hollander & Craft is one of the premier litigation firms in Kansas. From our offices in Kansas City, Lawrence, Overland Park, Topeka and Wichita, the firm’s attorneys aggressively represent our clients in cases in Kansas, Missouri, and across the United States. When we can’t resolve our clients’ problems with practical recommendations and reasonable negotiations, we use our experience and skills to control the litigation and produce decisive results.
When your business, your freedom, your property, or your career is at stake, you want the attorney standing beside you to be skilled, prepared, and relentless. We undertake complex contract, employment and civil rights litigation, defend against life-changing criminal prosecutions, protect children and property in divorce and family law cases, and battle claims of professional misconduct against attorneys, doctors, judges, accountants, real estate agents, and others.
Our firm can be found in the Martindale Hubbell® Bar Register of Pre Eminent Lawyers, U.S. News & World Report’s Best Law Firms, and Chambers USA’s The World’s Leading Lawyers. Many of our lawyers have been awarded the highest individual peer-review ratings assigned by Martindale Hubbell®. Attorneys in our firm have been selected by their peers for listing in Best Lawyers in America. Three were recently recognized by Best Lawyers in America as “Lawyer of the Year” in their field. Four were designated as Super Lawyers or Rising Stars by Thomson Reuters’ Super Lawyers.
