Three Attorneys Awarded Kansas City Best of the Bar

William Carr, Bryan White and Gene Graham Jr. were awarded Kansas City Best of the Bar 2016.

“I am honored to receive this award. The best advice I ever received as a trial lawyer was to be yourself in the courtroom,” Carr said. “If the jury doesn’t believe that you believe in your case, they are never going to find for your client.”

The Kansas City legal community has honored its top attorneys in private practice by choosing the Best of the Bar for 15 years. Each year, lawyers are asked to vote for their metro-area peers whom they consider the top attorneys in Kansas City.

“It is a pleasure being able to practice with, and learn from, so many great lawyers in this city.” White said.

“I chose to become a lawyer because of my father, Gene P. Graham Sr., who was the finest man and trial lawyer I have ever known,” Graham said. “I am honored to work alongside so many talented attorneys.”

The honorees represent a variety of practice areas and firms of all sizes. This year the Business Journal’s 2016 Best of the Bar publication showcases 198 lawyers as the top attorneys in private practice in Kansas City.
