Firm Bio

Our Firm’s founder, Karen J. Halbrook, has been a leader among Kansas, Missouri, and Arkansas trial lawyers for more than 30 years. After a brief career teaching high school in her beloved home state of Arkansas, Karen felt called to enroll in law school at the University of Arkansas. Shortly after graduating, Karen decided to make Kansas City her home and joined the firm of Linde Tomson Langworthy Kohn & Van Dyke. There, she honed her skills in trial work and client development under her mentor John Cleary.

During a time when there were few female attorneys and even fewer female trial attorneys in Kansas City, Karen made a name for herself by taking cases to trial – and winning. By successfully representing businesses in high-exposure employment and tort litigation, Karen developed an expansive and loyal client base. After practicing for other prominent Kansas City firms, Karen believed that she could offer the excellent service her clients deserve by opening her own firm. The Halbrook Law Firm opened in 2007 with only two employees. In 2010, Mitch Wood joined the firm and became a partner in 2017, when the firm re-branded to Halbrook Wood, P.C.

Through Karen’s leadership and mentorship as both a trial attorney and business owner, the firm has thrived into a successful firm with a team of over 20 individuals and growing. Yet the firm’s mission has remained constant: provide excellent service and develop meaningful relationships with the people and businesses we serve.
