Missouri Lawyer’s Weekly has named Jeffrey J. Carey a 2014 Legal Champion for his outstanding work on a multi-million dollar case seeking to recover funds paid to the United States Government and for his work defending the initiative petition process in Kansas City.

“I am honored that my peers recognized the work that I did on these important matters. In one, my client and I felt that the taxpayers had been defrauded by Kansas City Power and Light out of millions of dollars through the use of high value sporting event tickets provided to government employees while they were seeking contracts from their agency. In another, the City sued an initiative petition committee after refusing to put their matter on the ballot.”
