Greg Watt, Kansas City Criminal Defense Lawyer
“As a prosecutor, I developed a reputation as someone who didn’t hesitate to take a tough case to trial. Clients of The Watt Law Firm, LLC have come to rely on this level of confidence and experience in sorting through the difficulties a criminal matter can present. The ability to work up a case and convey it to a judge and jury is not something every criminal defense attorney can do, or wants to do. Since every prosecutor stands ready, able, and willing to take a case to trial, you should expect nothing less from your own attorney.”

I was only looking for the best lawyer in Kansas City to handle my situation, and that is exactly what I got with Greg Watt! I talked to several lawyers before deciding to go with Greg, and absolutely could not have made a better choice! He is extremely professional, kind, courteous, and made me feel like I really had someone on my team looking out for my best interests. Some of the biggest selling points for me were Greg's level of experience, prestige in the field, level of quick communication (even when I felt like I just needed some reassurance), and his confident and kind demeanor both in and out of the court room. I would hands down recommend him to anyone looking for the best person to represent them during a time in their life when they need only the best to go to bat for them. Greg has been an absolute blessing in my life, and I can't recommend him enough!

Greg Watt (Attorney) and Toni Skelton (Paralegal) are an amazing team. The two of them were able to efficiently and completely answer any and all questions I was able to come up with, sometimes before I had even thought to ask. When it was time to fight for me, the two of them went bare knuckle and exceeded my expected outcome. Will definitely use this team again if needed, but hopefully that isn't the case. Thank you for everything Greg and Toni!

I would highly recommend Greg to anyone in need of legal representation. He is very personable and was always quick to respond to any questions or needs I had. I felt that he cared about me as a person and not just as a another client on his list of cases. He was prepared and always on time and made the process very easy for me. If I could give 10 stars, I would.
