Chad Lucas

Trial Attorney

There is nothing Chad loves more than taking on powerful corporate defendants and insurance companies for his clients.  He takes pride in doing outstanding work in all aspects of every case – from the initial investigation of a case, taking depositions of key witnesses, going through thousands of documents to find the smoking gun or trying a case to a jury.

At Kuhlman & Lucas, LLC, he continues to seek justice and fair compensation for those who have been the victim of defective products and the wrongful actions of others.

The local and national legal communities have recognized Chad’s skill, expertise and accomplishments as a trial lawyer.  Chad was named one of the five winningest plaintiff attorneys in the state of Missouri for 2011 by Missouri Lawyers Weekly.  In addition, he has been voted best of the bar by the Kansas City Business Journal, named a Super Lawyer since 2009 and has earned the AV Preeminent rating from Martindale-Hubbell.

Chad grew up in St. Joseph, Missouri before attending the University of Missouri, where he graduated cum laude with a finance degree in 1998 and from law school in 2001.  From 2001 to 2005, he worked at large firm in Kansas City representing defendants.  While Chad learned from working under some of the best lawyers in the city, he soon realized his passion was not representing large corporate defendants and insurance companies, but the people the who had been wronged by them. Since 2005, Chad has represented only plaintiffs in contingent fee cases.

When Chad isn’t working, he enjoys spending time with his wife and three children.
