Kesia Smith was born and raised in St. Joseph. She received her bachelor of science in criminal justice from Missouri Western State University. Following her undergraduate education, Kesia worked as a claims adjuster for an insurance company in Overland Park, Kansas. After seeing the unfair results for victims of injuries which were not their fault, Kesia decided to attend law school.
Kesia graduated from the University of Missouri Kansas City with her J.D. and LLM. Following law school, she practiced law at a mid-sized plaintiff’s firm in both Kansas City and St. Joseph for six years. Ms. Smith opened the Smith Law Office, LLC and practices in the areas of personal injury, motor vehicle accidents, worker’s compensation, family and criminal law, and disputes over insurance coverage.
Antwaun Smith was raised in St. Joseph, Missouri. He sees clients in the firm’s Kansas City office and the surrounding area. Prior to joining his sister, Kesia, at Smith Law Office, LLC, he spent five years as a lawyer with the Kansas City firm Shook, Hardy, & Bacon. Antwaun now represents individuals who have been injured in accidents or hurt on the job, or who have engaged in disputes with insurance companies over coverage.
Antwaun is a Rhodes Scholar and a Mizzou graduate, with degrees in both law and business. He serves on the Board of Trustees of the Missouri State Employees Retirement System, where he oversees and protects workers’ retirement benefits. Antwaun was also elected by fellow attorneys to represent them on The Missouri Bar’s Board of Governors. The Missouri Bar’s mission is to improve the practice of law and administration of justice in Missouri.
Antwaun’s practice areas include personal injury, motor vehicle accidents, workers’ compensation, medical malpractice, and disputes over insurance coverage.
