About firm founder James Roswold

Attorney James Roswold has been practicing law since 1990. He’s a lawyer, a biker, and a rocker, and he started the firm because he believed that people in need of an attorney should be treated with respect, dignity, and compassion.

James has been recognized by Missouri Lawyers Weekly in connection with a record award for the death of a minor in a federal tort claims act case – a $1,000,000 verdict on behalf of a three-year-old Kansas City girl. "Experts say the judgment, entered by U.S. District Judge Gary A. Fenner, may be the largest award to date for the death of a minor child in a Federal Tort Claims Act lawsuit." He has also argued successfully before the Missouri Court of Appeals. You can read James Roswold’s full bio here.

What is “Extreme Client Delight”?

Extreme client delight means:

  • A promise to work tenaciously until we achieve the absolute highest settlement possible without a lawsuit.
  • Thoroughly explaining the settlement versus litigation and trial result.
  • Putting YOU in the driver’s seat, allowing you to make fully informed and advised decisions on whether to settle your case or proceed to litigation and trial.
  • That you aren’t just satisfied with your case results, but that your experience with our law firm leaves you feeling that you got something more than you expected.

When we first heard the phrase “customer delight,” we felt like we had finally found words to describe what we had been striving for since the firm was founded – to help people in their greatest time of need, giving them more than they ever expected. That’s why James Roswold assembled our unique team of attorneys and support staff. We are passionate, authentic, and tenacious when it comes to helping YOU, because we believe every client deserves our very best.

What are the advantages of working with Kansas City Accident Injury Attorneys?

It is our honor to work with clients, and we strive to provide a source of strength as they persevere through one of the most difficult times in their lives. People come to us with debilitating pain, medical bills, wage loss and other extraordinary financial damages that consume their lives.

Small firm size means more one-on-one attention

Helping individuals get back on their feet and getting them the compensation they deserve is both a responsibility and a privilege that we take very seriously. We believe that the best way to do that is to ensure that we know our clients as people, and understand their personal goals and unique needs. We don’t pass you off to junior attorneys or paralegals (though they may be a part of your complete team) halfway through your case. We stick with you, so we can give you, your case, and your family the attention you deserve.

You don’t pay if we don’t win

We take our cases on contingency, which means that WE pay all the upfront costs of settling or trying your case. Even the initial consultation is free! It literally costs you nothing to discuss your case with an attorney, and we only get paid when we win.

A personal injury lawyer is always near when you need one

Our firm maintains offices throughout Missouri and Kansas. Though we’re based in Kansas City, you can make an appointment at any of our other Missouri offices in Lee’s Summit, Parkville, St. Joseph, or at one of our offices in Kansas (Overland Park and Olathe). If you’re too injured to come to us, we will come to you instead, including at night and on weekends.
