Kristina L. Burmeister

Kristi Burmeister is an experienced litigator who has worked on nearly every type of civil lawsuit in her 15 years of practicing law. She has handled matters ranging from straight-forward "slip-and-fall" cases, to multimillion-dollar contract disputes, and her practice includes first-chair jury trial experience. Kristi is well-versed in resolving high-stakes, business-to-business litigation.

Prior to joining the firm, Kristi was a founding partner of a commercial and tort boutique law firm in Kansas City. She also has experience working as national litigation counsel for a Fortune 100 company dedicated to providing life-saving products and services.

No matter the case or the issue, Kristi believes that clients are best served by a lawyer who thinks strategically and practically.
