Making Things Right for Our Clients

Monsees & Mayer, P.C. is a law firm based in Kansas City, Missouri, with offices in Springfield, Missouri. We strive to provide consistently excellent legal representation to injured people and their families. As personal injury lawyers, our job is to make things right for our clients to the extent the law allows. Who you hire to handle your personal injury matter does matter. It matters in the way you are treated during the process. It matters when you need answers and help along the way. It matters in the amount of compensation you ultimately receive at the conclusion of your case. At Monsees & Mayer, P.C. you have a capable and committed team working for your best interests. We know we can make a positive difference throughout the process and in the end result.

Insurance companies and the parties they insure will pay for their mistakes and obligations only when compelled — and then only enough to avoid the risk of losing more at trial. When we accept a case we investigate it and prepare from day one as if it will go in front of a jury. A firm that is ready to go to trial is in a position to command the best possible settlement. Our strong record of verdicts and settlements reflects our tough stance in negotiations and the courtroom, backed by a thoroughly supported case.

Clients who approached other firms commonly say those attorneys wouldn’t return their calls or didn’t listen to what they have to say. We purposely limit our case load so that we can give clients our full attention at a difficult time and devote the proper time and resources to the case. Our lawyers will educate you about your rights and the damages to which you are entitled. (Sometimes, we advise people that they can handle the claim on their own.) We are accessible as questions and issues arise.

Attorney Timothy W. Monsees

Timothy W. Monsees is a graduate of the University of Missouri at Columbia where he attended both undergraduate and law school. A lifetime Kansas City, Missouri native, he returned home to practice law upon graduation from law school in 1981, where he graduated in the top 10% of his law school class and was awarded the distinction of “Order of the Coif”. In 2011, Tim was honored to become a member, by invitation, to the American Board of Trial Advocates, the most prestigious organization of trial attorneys in the United States. In over 35 years of practice, he has handled cases in over 20 states. In the past, Tim worked for law firms specializing in defense of insurance companies and product manufacturers. That experience now helps him know his opponent, as he now restricts his practice to representation of victims of wrongdoing.

His recognition by his peers in the legal community with a Martindale-Hubbell rating of “AV”, sets him at the top of his profession in both legal ability and professional integrity. For many years, Tim has been recognized as one of The Best Lawyers in America for his work in personal injury and medical malpractice. He has also been honored since 2006 as a Missouri “Super Lawyer” for attorneys falling into the top 5% of the profession. But, he is perhaps most professionally honored to be recognized as one of the Top 10% in his profession in “Client Satisfaction” by the American Institute of Personal Injury Attorneys. Client satisfaction is what it is all about.

Active leadership involvement in local, state and national legal communities assists him in locating other attorneys and experts with information that will better serve you. As a Sustaining member of the American Association for Justice, the best resources in the nation are available to Tim’s practice. His membership in the Million Dollar Advocate’s Forum is a testament to his history of million dollar results for his clients. In 2013, Tim published “Preparing For a Personal Injury Case”, Aspatore, a quick guide to the most commonly asked questions about personal injury cases and what to expect. It continues as a solid reference to the kinds of questions clients can and should ask as they choose an attorney and venture into personal injury litigation. Most importantly, Tim has a family. His family provides an inspiration for his representation of families like yours.
