Meet Kristen Wagner
Kristen joined our firm as a litigation associate in January of 2018.
Kristen’s practice areas consist of both criminal and civil defense as well as non-profit formation and consulting. Kristen has prior experience defending mass tort and toxic tort claims, including extensive deposition and courtroom experience. Kristen’s focus area also includes insurance defense involving products, premises, and professionals.
Kristen has completed the required curriculum to obtain a certificate in Alternative Dispute Resolution from the University of Missouri’s top-rated ADR center in order to be an effective advocate for early and efficient solutions for her clients. She also obtained a certificate for her academic emphasis in criminal law and worked as a law clerk for the prosecutor’s office allowing her the experience for defending a number of criminal issues. While in Law School, Kristen served on the Missouri Law Review as well.
Kristen is an active member of the Kansas City Metropolitan Bar Association and serves as a board member for a local non-profit benefiting children in foster care. When not serving Van Osdol clients, Kristen enjoys playing intramural sports and spending time with her family, friends, and two dogs, Scruffy and Bentley.
