A Process That
Delivers Results

We accept cases on a contingency-fee basis. Starting with a free initial consultation, we review the specifics of your case and help you determine your next steps. If we think your case has a high likelihood of a successful outcome, we’ll begin the process of securing a settlement.

Serving the Kansas City Area and Beyond

You only pay if we win, which allows us to dedicate quality time to every client. When you meet with us for your free case evaluation, you’ll see one of our partners, Ryan or Tom. Our firm works on the philosophy that the attorney-client relationship should be just that– working with an experienced lawyer, not a paralegal or associate.

We consult with you to reach a settlement that we think is fair, given the extent of your injuries. We don’t accept low-ball offers, and we work tirelessly to bring you and your loved ones needed closure. We advocate for our clients and bring a passion to our practice that’s unmatched in the Kansas City area and beyond.

Client Testimonials

“The doctor and his insurance company refused to offer any compensation in my medical malpractice claim.  Tom and Ryan believed in me and my case are were willing to hold the doctor accountable.  They took my case to a jury which found the doctor negligent and awarded me significant compensation for my injuries.”


“Ryan and Tom represented my family after our father’s fall at his nursing home.  They did a great job handling the case from start to finish.  Most of all, they really took the time to listen to our concerns and answer our questions.”


Tom was a man of integrity, and he displayed patience and a sincere desire to help us.  We never had a sense that he was money motivated or that we were unimportant to him. In fact, it felt as though we were a "team". Fowler Pickert receives an A+ from us, and we would strongly recommend this company to anyone seeking a law firm.”

What should I expect from my free consultation?

“Free Consultation” means that we (either Tom, Ryan, or both of us) will sit down to discuss your case with you.  This meeting can be on the phone, at our office, at your house, or wherever you feel most comfortable.  We will gather information from you about the case and provide you with our analysis. In addition to analysis of the issues your case may involve (such as issues of liability, damages,  legal hurdles,  etc.), we can answer any questions you have and will likely have a number of questions for you.  And it costs you nothing.

If I call with whom will I speak?

It’s likely that our receptionist will answer the phone and will direct you to either Tom or Ryan.  If we are not available you can leave a voicemail or a message with the receptionist and one of us will call you back within 24 hours (usually sooner).

What is different about Fowler Pickert?

What is different about Fowler Pickert?

There are a lot of good attorneys in Kansas City serving both Kansans and Missourians.  If a type of case that we do not handle comes in our door, we are happy to recommend a quality and experienced attorney to handle that type of case.  For the cases we do handle, we like to think we take a unique, personal approach to the case.  We don’t take a lot of cases because we want to be able to provide our clients with the attention they deserve.  We always work directly with our clients as opposed to having an associate or assistant as a go-between.  Also, we have had extensive experience working as members of the defense bar, giving us a unique understanding and perspective of how defendants, defense attorneys, and insurance companies handle these claims.
