After hiring two litigators with decades of experience, Boyd Kenter Thomas & Parrish LLC expanded its firm by opening its third and fourth offices.

With the hiring of Dennis Horner and Jeffrey Carey, the Independence-based law firm now has 11 attorneys in Sedalia, Lee’s Summit and Olathe.

Horner has been practicing law since 1974, specializing in workers’ compensation law, personal injury and wrongful death cases. He was listed as one of “America’s Best Lawyers” in 2014, 2015 and 2016. He’ll work out of Olathe, giving Boyd Kenter its first office in Kansas.

Carey has nearly 20 years experience as a lawyer, with specialties in personal injury and wrongful death claims. He received the Legal Champion’s Award from Missouri Lawyer’s Weekly for his work on a federal corruption case and in support of the initiative petition process. He’ll help open the firm’s new Lee’s Summit office.

Boyd Kenter also added Raymond Salva Jr., who earned his law degree from the University of Missouri-Kansas City in 2013. His areas of practice include civil litigation, personal injury and product liability.

“We’re excited to bring Dennis, Jeff and Ray’s complementary expertise to our attorney team,” Boyd Kenter Managing Partner Brianne Thomas said in a release. “Each will deliver the expertise and dedication to civil justice and will serve as passionate advocates for our clients.”

Boyd Kenter was founded in 1983.
