Attorney Profile

Attorney Michael Townsend is a partner in the law firm of Peddicord & Townsend LLC. At the Kansas City, Missouri, firm, Mr. Townsend focuses his practice on personal injury law by assisting injured victims from the Kansas City metropolitan area, surrounding Clay, Cass, Platte and Jackson counties, and throughout the state of Missouri pursue compensation for the pain and suffering they have had to endure due to the following:

• Motor vehicle accidents
• Medical negligence
• Insurance coverage denial
• Commercial vehicle accidents
• Dangerous property
• Medical malpractice

Mr. Townsend earned his bachelor's degree from Kansas State University and his law degree from University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Law. In 2005, The Missouri Bar granted him admission, and the state of Kansas approved him to practice law in its courtrooms in 2007.

After finishing law school, Mr. Townsend spent five years working for a large insurance defense law firm. There he gained valuable experience in the methods insurance companies use to deny coverage to claimants. Since joining the law firm of Peddicord & Townsend LLC as a partner in April of 2010, he has used the knowledge he gained in his previous position to fight for fair compensation for his clients.

When Mr. Townsend is not in the courtroom or negotiating a settlement for one of his clients, he is still never far from the legal community. He is an active member of a number of legal organizations on the state and local levels, including The Missouri Bar and the Kansas City Metropolitan Bar Association.
