August 2017



Welcome to The Works!

Our Inaugural Issue

Dear clients, friends, and colleagues,

“It is my hope that this newsletter (together with the other KC Estate Works content) will help keep us connected to you.”

I am extremely excited to be sending you the very first edition of my monthly newsletter, The Works! The Works is the newest addition to the project that I have been working on over the past year under the label “KC Estate Works” (more on that in a minute). Most of you probably know me through my law practice with Kennedy Berkley, and I am happy to report that 2017 marks my six-year anniversary with the firm. When I moved to Salina in 2010 to take the job with Kennedy Berkley, my practice shifted dramatically from estate and business planning to an almost singular focus on commercial banking and real estate. At the time, banks were still reeling from the ’08–’09 crisis, and there was a huge demand for this type of work within the firm. It was a fantastic experience, allowing me to cut my teeth in commercial litigation and also add considerable depth to my transactional practice. At the end of the day, however, I always knew that I wanted to get back to working with families and their businesses. By 2013, the banking waters had calmed enough to allow me to return to Kansas City and work remotely so that my wife, Allison, and I could be closer to our families. Since our return, I have been steadily transitioning my practice back to my roots, which is counseling families and entrepreneurs in the primary areas of estate and business planning, and estate and probate matters.

I am publishing content under KC Estate Works as the next progression in this transition. My goal with KC Estate Works is to provide you with timely and useful content and education, specifically curated to issues surrounding my clients’ families and businesses. By utilizing a variety of mediums, it is my hope that I will keep you engaged in the critical areas of estate and business planning. I invite you to also visit my website, kcestateworks.com, and my Facebook page, facebook.com/kcestateworks. These will continue to be updated with educational resources, dates and times for free educational seminars, and the occasional tidbit about my practice and you the clients.

Most importantly, it is my hope that this newsletter (together with the other KC Estate Works content) will help keep us connected to you. If you have any questions, topics, or content that you would like me to address in this newsletter or a future seminar (or if you just want to chat), I encourage you to call my office, as I am all ears! Thank you for the wonderful opportunity to serve you as clients and colleagues. I look forward to connecting with you soon.
