Provide exceptional service to every client, promptly and fairly, with the knowledge that, by striving for their success we thus assure our own.

A Unique Law Firm

Since 2014, Watkins Calcara has been recognized as one of America’s “Best Law Firms” by U.S. News & World Report LP and has been included in “The Best Lawyers in America” ©, in the field of Municipal Litigation. It is the largest law firm with principal offices located in the western half of Kansas and the scope of its practice is comparable to many multi-state regional firms. It is comprised of a talented group of attorneys with exceptional skills

and broad expertise. To this end, the firm’s attorneys recognize the importance of professional development, with a continuing education program that includes not only the attorneys but also its paralegals and support staff. The firm constantly seeks new and better ways to serve clients and has always been at the forefront in adopting cutting edge technology.

Guiding Principles

The practice of law is an honorable profession. We, at Watkins Calcara, have established principles by which we will practice law to insure we do so honorably and that we treat our clients and each other as we would expect to be treated by others. We declare the following to be our guiding principles:

At Watkins Calcara:

    • We will treat our clients and each other with respect and dignity.
    • We will conduct ourselves with integrity, both personally and professionally.
    • We will respect the privacy and confidentiality of our clients.
    • We will communicate effectively and timely with our clients and each other.
    • We will strive to maintain the highest degree of competency and professionalism.
    • We will work as a team; we are at our best when we work together for and with our clients.
    • We will provide the support necessary to enable each other to excel.
    • We will recognize work as an integral and necessary part of life but balance it with the needs of our families.

We are committed to these principles. We agree to abide by them and to hold ourselves and each other accountable to them in our personal and professional lives.

Our Areas of Focus

We concentrate our practice in the areas of insurance defense litigation, business, commercial, utility and banking law. In addition, the firm has extensive experience in the practice of probate, trust, labor, oil and gas, real estate, water and administrative law before the Kansas Corporation Commission and other state agencies.

Insurance Litigation &
Workers Compensation

No matter how careful we are and despite the best laid plans, some disputes arise which simply cannot be resolved without the involvement of independent decision makers. That's where we come in.

Business, Corporate &

Every business, to some degree, involves selling something - whether it is goods or services, a business will only be successful if it offers something for which others are willing to pay.

Real Estate &
Property Law

The ownership and transfer of both real and personal property involve compliance with state and sometimes federal requirements relating to the form of the deed, bill of sale, or assignment.

Watkins Calcara has always produced results with professional and prompt services. I highly recommend giving these guys a call.
