About Protzman Law
Founder Andy Protzman was a member of a highly respected law firm for 10 years, where he represented some of the world’s largest corporations and insurance companies in complex commercial and product liability litigation. He learned invaluable lessons about how the most sophisticated businesses and their attorneys approach legal disputes and the methods and strategies they employ in litigation. After a decade’s worth of experience, Andy came to the realization that he could do the most good by representing individuals who find themselves at odds with these large corporations. Too often these businesses use their size and resources to take advantage of the people they come into contact with, whether it is in the course of business dealings or by denying legitimate claims for compensation and damages. Andy founded Protzman Law Firm to give the ordinary person a voice in their battle with the behemoths of corporate industry.
Andy graduated from the University of Kansas with a bachelor’s degree in 1993. In 1996, he graduated from the University of Missouri at Kansas City School of Law, where he earned a position on the prestigious UMKC Law Review and finished near the top of his class. He has represented clients in numerous multi-week jury and bench trials involving sophisticated claims ranging from securities fraud and complex business disputes to product liability and police misconduct claims. He has achieved multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements for his clients. A frequent lecturer at continuing legal education programs and seminars on topics ranging from trial strategy to in-depth examinations of legal issues, Andy enjoys both the practical and academic sides of the legal industry.
Professionally, Andy is proud of the work he has done for his clients over the years and the results they have achieved together. However, he is most proud of his personal accomplishments; his family, years of coaching youth sports and working with kids, both his and others’, and the lifelong friendships he has made along the way.
