Rodney A. Ames


Rodney A. Ames is a litigator. He represents both plaintiffs and defendants in complex wrongful death, personal injury, employment discrimination, premises liability, and commercial dispute matters. He also works with corporate formation, contract negotiation and real estate transactions. 


Rodney’s experience representing both plaintiffs and defendants allows him to aggressively serve you with a unique perspective. After receiving his Juris Doctor degree, Rodney joined a downtown Kansas City law firm where he focused his practice primarily on insurance defense work. From there, his practice steadily evolved to include a strong and thriving plaintiff's practice where he has also enjoyed success at the trial court level and appellate courts. Rodney joined Withers, Brant, Igoe & Mullennix in 2003 where he continues to be an advocate for both defendants and those who have been injured or wronged. 


Rodney and his wife live in Liberty, Missouri. They are active in school, city, and church functions and deeply enjoy their associations with the community. They have four amazing children and three perfect grandsons.
