Kansas City's Legal Resource for Estate Planning, Probate, and Small Business Advising

  • Do you need a Will, a Trust, or a Power of Attorney?
  • Are you starting a Small Business?
  • Do you need help with the probate process?
  • Do you have an existing business in which you need legal advice?
  • Do you have a contract that needs to be reviewed by an experienced attorney?
At the Law Office of Ray Kowalczewski, P.A., we provide our clients with cost-effective legal solutions in the areas of estate planning (wills and trusts), probate, small business advising and contract review. With over 14 years of experience in these areas, we have found the most effective way to help our clients is to listen to their goals and unique circumstances, educate them about their options, then make recommendations to solve their legal problems.

Whether we are drafting a will or helping set up a new business, our approach is simple: to provide you with the best legal advice without overly complicating the process. Contrary to popular opinion, many legal problems can be solved in a very cost-effective manner if they are dealt with early enough to avoid a crisis situation. Many times, it is only after issues are ignored for a significant period of time that they become complicated (and costly).

Why us? Our Law Firm's Philosophy:

We believe in planning. We believe through proper planning most (but not all) problems can be minimized and potentially avoided altogether. This is where our experience in estate planning (wills and trusts), life planning and business planning is critically important. With our knowledge and experience, we can guide you through important decisions and avoid problem areas.

We also recognize that it is not always possible to plan appropriately for all circumstances. When problems do occur, we stand ready to assist our clients within the areas of law that we practice.

In order to provide personalized legal services to our clients in a cost-effective manner, our law firm focuses on the areas of law in which we have substantial skill, knowledge and experience. We represent clients in the following areas:
  • Estate Planning (including Wills, Trusts, Powers of Attorney)
  • Probate and Probate Alternatives
  • Small Business Planning and Advising (including business formations, corporate law, business law, and contract review)
  • Tax Problem Resolution Services - We also assist people when they run into trouble with the IRS or State taxing authorities.

We offer personalized service from knowledgeable and experienced lawyers. At the Law Office of Ray Kowalczewski, P.A. we can help you achieve your goals through proper and thoughtful planning and problem resolution. We will listen to your specific concerns and recommend legal solutions that are right for you, your family, or your company. Call Ray today to set up a consultation.
