The law firm of Bratcher Gockel Law, L.C. was established in 1995 by Lynne Bratcher and Marie Gockel, who were classmates in law school.  Both Lynne and Marie were experienced trial lawyers when they started their firm.  Together, the firm has over 68 years experience in the practice of law.  Marie is licensed in both Missouri and Kansas and in federal court in both states, while Lynne is licensed in Missouri and in federal court in Missouri and Kansas. Both lawyers are  certified as AV rated lawyers, the highest rating possible, by Martindale-Hubbell.  We recently hired UMKC Law School Graduate Antonette DuPree, who is also licensed in Missouri, and is a wonderful addition to the firm.

In addition to the attorneys, three hard-working paralegal/legal assistants are also part of the firm, Nancy Bruening and Michael Bell, who is a paralegal.  Bob Jaben has joined the firm as project manager, in charge of i.t., video, technology, and electronic discovery.  These six people make up the law firm of Bratcher Gockel Law, L.C.
