About KWS Law

Our goal is to provide Big Law quality legal services at a fraction of the Big Law price. We bring 35+ years of experience working for the federal government, regional, national and international law firms. Our experience runs the gamut from defending Fortune 500 companies, to helping entrepreneurs start businesses, to representing the United States government in complex national security and immigration litigation.

We are located in downtown St. Louis in the heart of the city’s thriving start-up community. The founding members created KWS Law because they identified a need in the greater St. Louis start-up community for a “start-up” local law firm – one that can focus on all of the unique needs of a new and growing business.
