DRZ Law firm began in 2013 when Dan Zmijewski started his own firm after working for over 10 years at larger law firms in Kansas City. The practice grew quickly and in 2015, Chris Dove joined the firm after working for over 10 years at the U.S. Department of Justice and at large firms in Washington, DC and Kansas City. In 2017, attorney Bill Madden came on full time after working at the firm part time as a law student at KU.
Our Commitment to Fighting for Victims of Abuse
Our attorneys have years of experience in small business litigation, including fraud, breach of contract, tax issues, and real estate dealings and we welcome these kinds of cases at our firm.
We are also passionate about representing the families of children who have been bullied or abused in institutional settings, such as boarding schools, churches, camps, and athletic facilities. Whether in state or federal court, we help victims exercise their constitutional rights to protection under the law when an institution fails to keep them safe. Representation of students whose civil rights have been violated by a school or university is also an area we have experience in.
We Know How to Value These Claims
The types of injuries we typically see are primarily psychological rather than physical. It can be difficult for attorneys and insurance companies to value these kinds of damages. But we are experienced in preparing alternate forms of recovery and treat every case like it is going to trial. We don’t just accept the first settlement offer; we fight for what we know the case is worth.
We care about our clients. The kinds of injuries we see can last a lifetime, so we represent our clients rather than their damages, always considering what is best for the client’s long-term healing process.
