Teresa James grew up in Hutchinson, Kansas, and she practiced law in Wichita for over twenty years before transferring to Martin Pringle’s Overland Park office. Having practiced in both cities, Teresa has a uniquely broad perspective of the legal landscape in Kansas and in western Missouri, and she is admitted to practice in both states. Her move to the Kansas City area also brings Teresa closer to the University of Kansas, her alma mater for both her undergraduate and law degrees. An avid Jayhawk fan, Teresa can be found in the stands for most of KU’s home football and men’s and women’s basketball games. Teresa brings the same enthusiasm and dedication to serve her clients’ legal needs. She has twice been nominated by a Fortune 1000 client to the BTI Client All-Star Team for outstanding legal service.
