About Us

Strawder&Loewenstein P.C. is a Kansas City, Missouri law firm focused on helping small businesses and the families that own them make more money through identification of new revenue streams, mitigation of risk, strategic tax planning, and succession planning.

If you don’t own a business, we are happy to assist with wills, tax planning and returns, traffic tickets, personal injury and other civil matters. If we don’t have the expertise in a particular area, we will find someone we trust who does.

Of course, the choice of a lawyer is an important decision and should not be based solely upon advertisements.


First, we don’t take huge cash-flow sucking retainers. Instead, we charge you as we work and only with your permission. We encourage you to use our innovative web site, using self-help to maximize return on your legal spend

Second, if you like, we can come to you to discuss the legal needs of your business in person. In fact, we prefer to understand your business from the inside, not the outside. However, if you prefer, we can meet at our offices next to Union Station.

Third, we return phone calls and e-mails. The same day we receive them.¬† We could go on, but here’s the deal: We treat you and your business a lot like you probably treat your own customers.¬† That goes for our fellow barristers, too! If you have a business client that requires some specialized service, or have some overflow work to help catch up we will take care of your business at a professional discount, while maintaining the integrity of your client relationship. (That’s fancy lawyer-speak for “We don’t steal clients!”)


We are not just partners with our fellow lawyers at Strawder & Loewenstein, we are partners with our clients.

That’s why we have expertise in the following areas (neither the Supreme Court of Missouri nor The Missouri Bar reviews or approves certifying organizations or specialist designations)

We advise Missouri businesses, including start-ups, on a wide range of issues, including:

  • Employment Law
  • Business Startup and Organization
  • Advanced Tax Practice
  • Collections
  • Federal, State, and Local contracting from RFP prep to ongoing compliance and “whistle-blower” mitigation.
  • Affordable Healthcare Act (Health Care Reform of 2010
  • Funding / Venture Capital / Private Placements
  • Department of Homeland Security regulated industries¬† under CFATS, C-TPAT, and MTSA regulations
  • Regulatory Compliance
  • Corporate Compliance
  • Business Reorganizations
  • Virtual General / In-House Counsel

Intelligent business and legal planning is essential when starting a new business to ensure business growth and long term success. We endeavor to ensure that our clients are well prepared to grow their businesses and avoid the pitfalls many encounter when not represented by an experienced Missouri business attorney.
