About Edelman & Thompson
James Thompson and Ron Edelman founded their law firm, Edelman & Thompson, to give injury victims and their families the kind of high-quality legal representation they need and deserve. From the smallest cases to the largest, Edelman & Thompson understand that families need someone on their side when a loved one is injured through someone else’s fault. Over the years, Edelman & Thompson have helped thousands of injury victims get the medical care they need and the financial compensation to which they are entitled.
Their dedication to serving their clients has helped Edelman & Thompson grow into one of Kansas City’s largest and most respected personal injury law firms with eleven full-time attorneys and four convenient locations in both Kansas and Missouri. Edelman & Thompson have secured hundreds of millions of dollars in settlements and verdicts on behalf of victims of negligence and work injuries. All our attorneys practice full-time and work in Kansas City-area courts every day.
The firm has six attorneys, led by partner Ron Edelman, who focus exclusively on work injury cases. With a former workers compensation judge and a former legal advisor for the Missouri Division of Workers’ Compensation, no other law firm can match the unique level of experience of Edelman & Thompson’s work injury attorneys.
Led by partner James Thompson, the personal injury legal team has earned a reputation for taking on complex civil cases and winning major settlement and verdicts, including a $7.2 million verdict in a swimming pool death, a $4.6 million truck accident settlement, $2.2 million on-the-job truck accident verdict, a $1.9 million auto accident settlement, and a $1.1 million work injury/defective productive verdict.
James Thompson has been named to Missouri and Kansas “Super Lawyers” and is one of only a limited number of Kansas City-area attorneys who are members of the Multi-million Dollar Advocates Forum.
