Serving those who serve the public


About the Firm

I established Lauber Municipal Law, LLC, for the purpose of serving local governmental entities of all types and sizes. I have dedicated my entire career to the representation of municipal clients— I have excelled in my practice as a public law attorney starting with “big firm” experience in the public law practice group at one of Kansas City’s largest law firms, then a practice focused exclusively on Missouri economic development law at the region’s busiest bond firm, before returning to a general municipal practice at a boutique municipal law firm in the Kansas City metro area. I can serve your community as its general counsel (City Attorney) or as special counsel for technical issues like economic development incentive approvals, annexation, elections, impeachments, and appellate work.

My goal through Lauber Municipal Law, LLC, is to meld my previous experience together to provide a high-quality, “big firm” work product, while providing the flexibility, personal responsiveness, and cost effectiveness of a small firm. I completely understand public entities’ needs to obtain the most effective representation possible while considering the fact that these services are compensated from a budget made up of public funds. As the motto for Lauber Municipal Law, LLC, states: I am proud to serve those who serve others. My sincere desire is to make that job easier and less stressful for the elected officials and administrative staffs of these entities.
