IT WAS 2005.

We were partners at a successful mid-sized law firm located on the Country Club Plaza in Kansas City. We were blessed with an abundance of challenging work, but most of our clients were huge companies and most of our work involved defending those companies against claims of wrongdoing. We felt little reward in what we were doing and decided it was time for a change. So we started a new law firm: Bartle & Marcus LLC. Our new firm was immediately successful. It grew in size to become Graves Bartle & Marcus LLC in 2006 and Graves Bartle Marcus & Garrett LLC in 2009.

In the summer of 2013, as our eight-year anniversary approached, the firm was thriving. But our larger size and larger client base impacted our ability to focus on the types of cases we most enjoy. We felt driven to move to a platform that would allow us greater flexibility to handle these cases and to provide individualized service to the clients who bring them. So we left the law firm we founded to start a new firm with a familiar name: Bartle & Marcus LLC.

Our mission today remains much the same as it was in 2005. We want to represent the little guy.

Most of the time, this means representing agents in disputes with administrators or dealers. In some cases, this may mean a consumer harmed by a defective product. In other cases, it may mean a multi-million-dollar company defrauded by a larger corporate conglomerate. In still other cases, it may mean the U.S. Government embodied in the form of an individual whistleblower that has the courage to come forward and report someone who is cheating taxpayers.

In all cases, we pledge to use our tenacity, creativity and compassion to make a positive impact in our clients’ lives. It’s not only what we do; it’s who we are. If you have a legal problem and need someone to help, please give us a call.
