Our History And Our Approach
Twice in the past two decades, we have ventured out from larger law firms to form our own more focused firm. Why? Because our greatest successes and satisfaction have consistently come about through a focus on personalized legal representation.
Founding partners Matt Bartle and David Marcus originally practiced at a midsized litigation boutique on the Country Club Plaza in Kansas City, where they defended large corporations and corporate conglomerates against claims of wrongdoing. Over time, they became disenchanted with the defense side, so in 2005, they left to form Bartle + Marcus. They enjoyed almost immediate success, and quickly grew to add other partners, associate attorneys and offices. In 2009, the firm became Graves Bartle Marcus & Garrett LLC. In 2013, Matt and David branched out again to form the second iteration of Bartle + Marcus to focus on representing clients in high-stakes cases on a contingency fee basis.
Our mission today remains the same as it was in 2005. We fight for the rights of individuals and small businesses. This may mean representing a small to mid-size company harmed by a bigger business partner, a consumer harmed by a defective product, or it may mean representing the U.S. Government embodied in the form of an individual whistleblower that had the courage to come forward and report someone who cheated 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 call us at 816-285-3888.
