Firm Overview

Johnson County, Kansas Divorce Lawyer and Mediator

Experienced, compassionate, and tough-minded, I have practiced family law since 1992, with an emphasis on mediating disputes to preserve relationships, especially where children are involved. If you are looking for an attorney who prefers workable resolutions over expensive litigation, contact my Leawood family law firm today.

Jean W. Wise, Attorney at Law serves the greater Johnson County, Kansas City area, including Overland Park, Olathe, Shawnee, Lenexa, Leawood, Prairie Village and other cities, as well as clients outside Johnson County who need representation in the Johnson County courts. I handle all family law issues:

  • Divorce and property division
  • Child custody and parenting time
  • Child support and maintenance
  • Paternity, adoptions, and guardianships
  • The rights of spouses, married and unmarried parents, and grandparents

 


Why Many Former Clients Recommend Me
Clients find a welcoming attorney who listens and cares; as a mother and a grandmother, I understand many of the issues they face. But compassion alone will not solve your legal problem. Clients discover I am diligent, persistent, and a formidable negotiator on their behalf, at the bargaining table or in court.

Leadership and Experience
In addition to practicing family law since 1992, my tough negotiating skills have been honed by 15 years as an elected city official, serving as city council member and then as Mayor of Leawood, Kansas. I am also a former president of the Johnson County Bar Association, with five years of service on the Bar Association Board of Directors.

For effective legal counsel in any family law matter, contact a veteran family law and divorce lawyer by calling (913) 345-9473 or email me to talk about how I can help you.
