Ted is driven by his passion for using the law to help level the playing field so those that have been
marginalized and hurt by large corporations can seek justice. Ted’s practice is dedicated to helping his
clients hold wrongdoers accountable. Ted takes personal pride in working up all facets of litigation –
legal research, briefing, expert discovery, to trial.

Having grown up in a family of lawyers, Ted developed his presentation of oral argument skills at an
early age. This trait carried over into law school, where he was awarded to the Order of Barristers – an
award honoring the top graduates demonstrating outstanding ability in the preparation and
presentation of oral argument.

Ted’s trial skills have allowed him to achieve great successes for his clients. Ted has tried numerous jury
trials and bench trials in both State and Federal Courts. Ted has also successfully argued in front of the
Kansas Court of Appeals. Although Ted is always preparing his cases for trial, he also understands the
best result for a client may be a creative resolution outside the courtroom. For that reason, Ted focuses
on listening to the needs and desires of his clients and is always working for their best interest.

Ted graduated from the University of Kansas with a Bachelor of Arts degree in 2006. He earned his Juris
Doctor from the University of Missouri at Kansas City in 2010, attaining the Dean’s List for academic
excellence. He was also selected by the law school to represent it in the National Trial Competition in
which his mock trial team advanced to the regional finals. During law school, Ted also clerked for the
Honorable James M. Smart, Jr., of the Western District of the Missouri Court of Appeals.
After law school, Ted was drawn to plaintiff’s trial work and has focused his practice around areas of
personal injury, commercial litigation, product liability, car accidents, tractor-trailer litigation, premises
liability, and class action work.

In his free time, Ted enjoys golf, rooting on his hometown teams (including the 2015 World Champion
Kansas City Royals) and spending time with his wife, Tiffany.
