(WICHITA, Kan.) – A joint survey released today by U.S. News & World Report and Best Lawyers awards Monnat & Spurrier, Chartered, five “Best Law Firms 2022” rankings for:

  • General Practice Criminal Defense
  • White-Collar Criminal Defense
  • Appellate Practice
  • DUI/DWI Defense
  • Bet-the-Company Litigation

“We appreciate this recognition more every year because it stems directly from surveys of our clients and peers,” said Dan Monnat. “We are honored to earn such high respect from those we serve, as well as from our fellow lawyers in the bar.”

“Best Law Firms” rankings are compiled using evaluations by clients who are asked to rank firms in areas such as responsiveness, cost-effectiveness, civility, and whether the client would refer others to the firm. Rankings also reflect an independent analysis of each firm and surveys from attorneys in similar practice areas.

Celebrating its 36th year, Monnat & Spurrier was founded by criminal defense attorney Dan Monnat and legal scholar Stan Spurrier. The firm has gained an international reputation for its defense of such high-profile clients as late-term abortion provider Dr. George Tiller; the unfortunate innocent person whose home was mistakenly raided by police as being that of serial killer BTK; and most recently, the Western Kansas man wrongly accused of murdering a four-year-old child by cruelly beating or shaking her.

In addition to Monnat and Spurrier, the firm includes shareholder Sal Intagliata and associate Eli O’Brien.
