About Jerold A. Bressel
Jerold A. Bressel is a lifelong resident of the Greater Kansas City metropolitan area. He obtained his Bachelor of Science/Bachelor of Arts Degree from the University of Missouri at Columbia, Missouri, in 1969, and his Juris Doctorate from the University of Missouri at Kansas City, Missouri in 1972. Having proficiently practiced law in this area for nearly four decades, he carries the highest attorney rating of "AV" by the national rating service of "Martindale-Hubbell." While his practice focuses primarily on complex family law matters, he also handles complex corporate and real estate cases. The vast majority of his clients are derived from previous client referrals, as well as referrals from other attorneys and professionals in the fields of accounting, psychology, and medicine. With so much of his business derived from referrals, he has not needed extensive advertising. Serving your best interest is his passion, and being committed and prepared to protecting your rights in whatever issues you face are his mission.
Mr. Bressel is licensed to practice law in Kansas and Missouri, and before Federal Courts in the Eighth and Tenth Circuits, as well as before the United States Supreme Court. He is a member in good standing with the American Bar Association, the Kansas Bar Association, the Missouri Bar Association, the Johnson County Bar Association, and the Kansas City Metropolitan Bar Association. Over the years Mr. Bressel has presented several seminars to attorneys and other professionals on a variety of legal topics, which always include practice tips based upon his vast experience and legal knowledge. Mr. Bressel serves on the Family Law Bench/Bar Committee of the Johnson County Bar Association, and has assisted in ongoing revisions of the Johnson County Family Law Guidelines over several years.

He has had active or prior cases in the following counties for the State of Missouri: Cass, Clay, Platte, and Jackson Counties.
The acknowledgment of his accomplishments in the field of Family Law facilitated his being accepted as a Fellow of the highly esteemed American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers (“AAML”), of which he is currently President of the Kansas Chapter. Only 22 attorneys in Kansas are admitted to the AAML. Recently, Mr. Bressel was recognized as one of the top 100 AAML family law trial lawyers in the United States, with his admission as a Diplomat of the prestigious American College of Family Trial Lawyers (“ACFTL”). He is the only attorney from Kansas to be distinguished with admission to the ACFTL.
Since 2006, he has been selected as one of the "Super Lawyers" of Kansas, of which only 5% of the attorneys of the state are named in Super Lawyers.
His affiliations within the above associations grants him access to extraordinary continuing education, a wealth of contacts with the most renowned expert witnesses in the country, and the ability to provide his clients with the most up-to-date developments in the law affecting their particular issues.
