Kevin J. Rapp

Kevin rapp
How has Kevin J. Rapp earned his reputation as a widely respected lawyer for car accident and product liability lawsuit cases? He is successful in terms of the number of cases resolved and the amount recovered for clients. At Aleshire Robb & Rapp, he handles complex litigation issues for injured individuals and small businesses. Kevin also has significant expertise in handling illegal and improper debt collection activities brought against individual consumers. Since 2013, Kevin has also investigated ethical complaints filed against Missouri Attorneys for the Missouri Bar.

Before joining our firm, Kevin spent his formative years traveling the globe as the son of an Air Force fighter pilot. After law school, he moved to Springfield, MO to clerk for United States District Court Judge Richard E. Dorr. Kevin then gained extensive legal experience in appellate litigation, criminal defense, and workers’ compensation cases. Like Bill and Greg, he has an insider’s insight, which he gained when serving as local defense counsel for several large corporations sued in Missouri.

Kevin turned down many opportunities for lawyer stardom in bigger cities. Instead, he and his wife Kelly, a native of Springfield, chose to raise their two children in the Ozarks. The family enjoys spending Sundays with the Brentwood Christian Church congregation and frequently visiting Lawrence, Kansas to cheer the Jayhawks. When Kevin isn’t serving as a lawyer for car accident or product liability lawsuits, he’s busy serving the Springfield community. He’s a Drury University School of Religion board member and teaches Introduction to American Government at Ozarks Technical Community College.
