Kevin D. Case
Attorney Kevin Case has spent more than 30 years prosecuting and defending the interests of local government, licensed professionals, and diverse members of the local, regional, national and international business community: retail, agriculture, construction, manufacturing, insurance and transportation.
As his practice grew, he recognized the need for a Firm with like-minded attorneys. In 2001, he founded the Firm that is now Case Linden. In 2020, Mr. Case stepped down as Managing Partner of the Firm to return full-time to the courtroom.
In Kansas, his trial record includes significant victories from all corners of the State and in each of its federal courthouses located in Kansas City, Topeka and Wichita.
In Missouri, he has recorded jury trial wins in the courthouses in Columbia, Hillsboro, Independence, Kansas City, Liberty, Springfield, and both the City and County of St. Louis.
Mr. Case's litigation record includes the successful defense of hundreds of employers in a myriad of employment claims under state and federal anti-discrimination and retaliation statutes such as the Missouri Human Rights Act, the ADA, ADEA, FMLA and Title VII.
He has defended numerous catastrophic claims involving wrongful death and traumatic brain injuries arising from industrial accidents, defective products and a variety of other transportation accidents.
He has represented professionals in various claims of malpractice including those in the medical profession and his peers in the legal profession.
Mr. Case's public service extends beyond the Firm. He was appointed assistant attorney general by two different attorneys general. He served in an elected office in municipal government, as a member and chairman of a planning and zoning commission, and as a judge to resolve disputes arising from a Kansas City-area public housing authority. Two mayors appointed him to serve as board trustee for one of the largest acute care hospitals in the Kansas City metropolitan area that employed more than 3,000 employees where he served on board committees with oversight of professional management and litigation.
Mr. Case is married and resides in Kansas City.
