Helping You Create the Future You Want

Serving ONLY the Kansas City Metro and surrounding areas of Kansas and Missouri

No matter what kind of legal need or problem you are faced with, you will benefit by choosing a lawyer with experience and a proven track record of success in resolving those issues.

At the law firm of Barbara E. Hecht, P.C., we offer a wealth of experience, effective representation and individualized legal services to people in the Kansas City metropolitan area and in the surrounding portions of both Kansas and Missouri.

Much of our practice is dedicated to resolving divorce-related issues such as child custody or property and debt division through mediation and collaborative law methods, or through the courts. We draft premarital agreements and handle post-divorce legal needs, including modifications and enforcement as well.

We also provide quality legal services in areas such as estate planning, real estate, bankruptcy and business — and for municipal, criminal and juvenile court cases.

One of the more unique assets we have to offer is extensive experience with serving the family law and estate planning needs of married or unmarried same-sex couples and other members of the LGBT community.

What makes us different? We focus on helping clients who are trying to shape new and better futures for themselves. We take our clients and their legal issues as they are — working to develop legal strategies and solutions that are tailored to fit their needs and lives, not ours. We can also guarantee that you will work with and be personally represented by an experienced attorney only, not a new associate.
