More Than 26 Years Of Attorney Experience

I am Jill K. Shipman-DeHardt, the principal and founding attorney of Shipman & DeHardt, P.C., in Lee's Summit, Missouri. I have spent my career helping people through a wide range of legal challenges in the Kansas City metro area (Missouri-side). Some involve their families. Some involve their businesses. Many involve their personal freedoms.

I love my job because I have the chance to really help the people I represent. When you contact my office, you will speak directly with me — someone who can and will answer your questions, give you a clear view of the process ahead and assertively protect your best interests.

Confident, Strategic And Effective

I handle a wide range of legal matters that involve complex litigation or the negotiation of settlements — things like family law, probate, civil disputes and criminal defense. I never hesitate to assertively fight for my clients, but I know effectiveness requires more than just aggression. It requires insight, direct attention and a real concern for doing good work.
