Attorney Kevin Carr
Kevin Carr is an experienced Trial Attorney at DiPasquale Moore who represents victims and families in matters involving motor vehicle collisions, premises accidents, and serious personal injury.
While Kevin has a background in public service, his passion for the law has personal roots. His mother was severely injured by a defective product and faced many legal challenges when the companies involved attempted to deny liability. Fortunately, his mother had good legal representation and was able to obtain rightful compensation and justice for her damages. This experience taught him about the importance of having a good lawyer and shaped his desire to help others who find themselves facing off against powerful corporations that put profits over people and do everything they can to pay victims as little as possible.
A Missouri native who grew up in Lee’s Summit, Kevin attended the University of Missouri for both his undergraduate degree in political science and philosophy and his Juris Doctor. While in law school, he served as Managing Editor of the school’s Journal of Dispute Resolution, President of the Federalist Society, and participated in Mizzou’s Veterans Clinic helping veterans obtain needed benefits. He also worked in the general counsel’s office of the Missouri Department of Labor and Industrial Relations.
