Best Family Law Attorneys in Kansas

Lawyer Legion created this list of the top picks in 2024 for the best family law attorneys in Kansas. To rank the top family lawyers and other lawyers in Kansas, we used both objective and subjective criteria.

The top family law attorneys were selected based on their career accomplishments, success in high-profile cases, professional involvement, community leadership, and board certifications.

This list represents a sample of some of the most highly accomplished family lawyers currently practicing in Kansas. When reviewing this list, please be aware of each of the following:

  • Lawyers cannot pay to be included in this list.
  • Only lawyers who are active on Lawyer Legion were selected.
