Kenneth M. McRae graduated from law school in 1996 and passed the Kansas Bar exam that summer. He began practicing in Lawrence, Kansas. For nine years, he handled a general caseload, which included family law cases, real estate contracts, wills and estates, personal injury cases, and criminal matters. 

He served on a panel of attorneys who agreed to accept court-appointed cases to represent clients who could not afford an attorney. He tried cases on charges as severe as attempted first-degree murder. Ken also served the court as a judge pro tem for traffic and child support dockets. During this time, he was secretary and treasurer of Kansas’ Douglas County Bar Association. 

In 2005, Ken joined a regional family law firm and exclusively practiced family law in Overland Park, Kansas and Denver, Colorado. He handled divorces, relocations, child support and maintenance modifications, parenting time modifications, abuse allegations, and property divisions. Ken has tried cases, argued motions, appeared in mediation and arbitration, and negotiated settlements. 

Ken is a member of the Kansas Bar Association and the Family Law Section of the Kansas Bar.
