About Anne Kiske – Family Law

Attorney Anne KiskeI am passionate about helping you through all of your life transitions – from cradle to grave. I’ve been an attorney since 1994, when I was graduated from Washington University School of Law in St. Louis, Missouri. I first began the practice of law in Scott County, Missouri as the only public defender assigned to the entire county. After two years in the rural area, my family and I moved to the Kansas City metro area where I joined the Department of Social Services representing the Children’s Division in child abuse and neglect cases. After 8 years with the Department of Social Services, I joined the Earnshaw Hobbs Law Firm PC to continuing and broaden my advocacy skills on behalf of families and children. After almost 6 years with Earnshaw Hobbs, I opened my own firm, Kiske Law Office, LLC, in Zona Rosa. I am licensed in both Missouri and Kansas (and hold an inactive license in Illinois). Because I also like to challenge myself, I am usually engaged in one or two large “extra-curricular” activities. Currently, I am privileged to serve on the Board of Directors for MARCH mediation. I am also a member of the Association of Family and Conciliatory Courts, and I have received the AVVO client’s choice award for Family Law in 2014, 2015 and 2016. In my “free time” I volunteer for a hospice organization where I play flute duets for patients in hospice.

I am also grateful for my personal life experiences that have enabled me to be empathetic with my clients. I have personally been through a divorce with children, experienced the death of a parent, and many of the life transitions that we all experience.

At the Kiske Law Office, LLC, I am responsible for child custody cases, child abuse cases, divorces, paternities, guardianships, and traffic matters, and simple estate planning. I developed the Mobile Lawyer Services to more effectively meet the needs of our aging and disabled clients. I truly enjoy helping clients resolve their parenting and other legal issues. I am grateful for the opportunity to counsel clients on issues related to their family, children and loved ones.

David Cooper
David CooperI have been practicing law since 1981 when I was graduated from the University of Texas at Austin Law School magna cum laude. I immediately started working in law firms in the Kansas City area where I was born and raised. I spent a year at a big downtown firm that no longer exists where I got my first taste of general practice focusing on bankruptcy, family law and estate planning.  I then moved to Hyatt Legal Services for 6 years where I was fortunate to be able to fully develop my courtroom skills working for clients in bankruptcy, family law and estate planning.  I decided to try a smaller firm and was fortunate enough to join a smaller firm for 5 years where I learned that my true passion was providing services to everyday people who had gotten themselves into a bit of a pickle. In 1993 I joined the firm that eventually became Ford and Cooper, PC, where I was fortunate to have a lengthy and successful career with my partner, Ed, until 2020 Ed decided it was time to retire. Throughout my career I have represented clients in bankruptcy, family law, estate planning, criminal court, traffic court, municipal court, juvenile court, and general practice areas. When Anne asked me to join the Kiske Law Office Team, I couldn’t refuse. After almost 40 years of helping people obtain bankruptcy relief from the Bankruptcy Court, I am now considered a “Debt Relief Agency”.  I am excited that I will continue to have the privilege of representing everyday clients in the bankruptcy proceedings, criminal matter,  driving while intoxicated cases, and traffic cases.
