  • Meet Attorney Stephen G. Sanders

    Civil Prosecutor Dedicated to Standing Up for the Rights of the Injured

    After finishing law school in 2001, Attorney Stephen G. Sanders found his passion in fighting on behalf of the wrongfully injured, and he is willing to do whatever he can to create real positive change in the lives of each one of our clients. He believes in the importance of community, and is committed to doing his part to keep ours safe.

    Throughout his career, our attorney has handled and secured successful outcomes in many highly complex cases. One of Mr. Sanders’ most defining moments came when he represented an 8-year-old girl who was paralyzed by a vehicle. In an exceedingly complex product liability case, he achieved a successful outcome while facing one of the world’s largest automobile manufacturers. As a result of his tremendous work in this case, Mr. Sanders was asked to become a founding faculty member for the Keenan Ball Trial College. He has since instructed numerous classes there and has been asked by attorneys across the country for help with their personal injury cases.

  • Meet Attorney David L. Johnson

    Civil Prosecutor Committed to Restoring Justice on Behalf of Injured Victims

    Since his early childhood, David L. Johnson yearned to be an attorney. The career called to him in fifth grade when he spoke with two lawyers on career day. From that day forward he spent the entirety of his education with that goal in mind, focusing his studies on public speaking, debate, forensics, and mock trial. While attending law school at the University of Missouri-Columbia, Mr. Johnson received recognition in several mock trial competitions, served on the Board of Advocates, and directed the 1L Moot Court competition. In the years following his graduation, Mr. Johnson has become a prestigious Kansas City civil prosecutor, representing clients in complex cases involving wrongful death, general torts, workers' compensation, and more.

    To Attorney Johnson, justice means more than giving clients a fair chance in court. He doesn't just want their voices heard, he wants the court to recognize the gravity of their situation and force liable parties to acknowledge their role in the injury. These lawsuits are serious, particularly when they pertain to catastrophic injuries and wrongful deaths. By forcing negligent parties to make their actions public, our attorney contributes to public awareness of these accidents and discourages others from making the same mistakes. He believes his work in deterring future injuries is just as important as finding justice for victims of car crashes and other catastrophes.

  • Meet Attorney Jason T. Wilson

    Civil Prosecutor with Experience from Both Sides of the Courtroom

    Attorney Jason Thomas Wilson’s legal career was forged through rigorous education and a series of experiences in personal injury litigation that left a deep impact on him. After graduating from Brigham Young University’s Law program, Jason landed work in a small-town law firm where he had the opportunity to work both prosecution and defense in personal injury lawsuits. This gave our attorney the opportunity to see first-hand how powerful corporations make conscious decisions that put the general public at risk for the sole purpose of cutting costs.

    Through his interaction with injury victims both working on their behalf and, occasionally, against them, Jason found that one route was more rewarding than the other, and now works full time as a personal injury prosecutor at Sanders.Law. One of Jason’s eye opening cases to how tight insurance companies can be with their money did not even involve an injury. In this case, a young woman was hit by a truck. No one was hurt, and the truck driver admitted fault— all the victim asked for was fair compensation for the damage to her vehicle. Even with their insured taking responsibility, the insurance company refused to pay and hired legal counsel to defend themselves.

    Seeing how reluctant this company was to pay for the market value of a car, Jason realized that people who have been injured in these situations face tremendous resistance while fighting for recovery for their medical bills. Our attorney is now completely dedicated to protecting the rights of people who have been harmed by negligence.
