Best Lawyers-JS (2019)

After graduating with honors from the University of Michigan Law School, Jeremy lived in Cleveland, Ohio for a year while serving as a law clerk to the Honorable Karen Nelson Moore, Circuit Judge for United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit. Having grown up in Nebraska, Jeremy then decided to return to the Midwest and began private practice as a litigator in Kansas City.

For over a decade, Jeremy has litigated high stakes, complex cases in courts in Kansas, Missouri, and around the country.  Jeremy has represented corporate and individual clients in a variety of matters, including contract and business tort disputes, class actions, antitrust and patent litigation, professional liability cases, and tax court disputes.

Jeremy has been consistently recognized by his peers in the legal community.  Best Lawyers in America® has named Jeremy in the area of Commercial Litigation since 2015, and he has been named as a Missouri and Kansas Rising Star by Super Lawyers® since 2012.

Jeremy lives in Kansas City with his wife and their two sons. Jeremy enjoys soccer, especially Sporting Kansas City and watching games in the Cauldron, and running, having completed over 30 half-marathons (and one marathon, which was enough).
