Our Philosophy: Our core purpose is to provide superior legal services to our clients, without compromise. Our decades of cumulative experience and personal dedication to our clients give us the ability to deliver on this commitment in every case, with strategic, effective and efficient solutions, tailored to achieve each of our clients’ desired goals.
The firm was founded in January 1997 by six trial lawyers who, together, left a large and well-respected Kansas City law firm to form their own law practice, with an unyielding commitment to excellence in every facet of their representation of clients.
That personalized dedication to clients was an immediate success. Since its origins, Berkowitz Oliver has grown to more than 30 attorneys whose practice centers on trials, appeals, arbitrations and regulatory and administrative proceedings, primarily in the commercial and business fields of law. The Firm has a national and regional clientele and has established its reputation as one of the premier litigation firms in the country. Like its founding members, most of the attorneys at Berkowitz Oliver have experience at large firms and use that experience to provide premier service in an efficient, flexible and cost-effective manner that the smaller size allows. The Firm has two offices - one in Kansas City, Missouri and one in Prairie Village, Kansas.
Since its founding in 1997, the law firm of Berkowitz Oliver has focused its efforts on building and maintaining strong client relationships through unparalleled client service, a sincere interest in its clients' business affairs and a genuine commitment to their well-being.
As trial attorneys, we have represented clients in state and federal trials and appellate court proceedings all over the country. In addition, we routinely appear in state and federal administrative hearings, FINRA and AAA arbitrations, and court-ordered and private mediation proceedings.
Berkowitz Oliver is proud of the numerous awards and honors the firm and its attorneys earn each year, which place us among the elite firms and lawyers in the country. MORE
Being efficient doesn't mean cutting corners. It means identifying the objective to be achieved and working to achieve that objective in as short a time for as reasonable a cost as possible. Berkowitz Oliver attorneys do not engage in protracted legal skirmishes over matters that won’t advance resolution of the case. Litigation is a means to an end, not an end in itself. Keeping that in mind, Berkowitz Oliver always puts the interests of its clients first.
We know that more attorneys on a case does not always mean better legal representation. While we all work collaboratively and regularly draw upon one another’s expertise, we staff each case with a core of attorneys who are best-suited to the matter. By this lean approach to staffing, we strive to offer our clients maximized continuity and efficiency and – coupled with our competitive rates – minimized expenses.
It's cliché to say that our clients are important to us, but at Berkowitz Oliver, it’s the truth. And our clients don’t have to take our word for it - they can tell by our dedication to their matters. Whether it’s a single question or a major legal crisis, we are available around-the-clock to our clients, and work tirelessly to provide them with the answers and legal assistance they need.
