As an aspiring lawyer, Kevin Puckett knew that Missouri Western was the right school for him. With an American Bar Association-approved Legal Studies program and an early-acceptance program into the UMKC School of Law, Missouri Western provided great opportunities close to home.
“Missouri Western offers top-shelf education with professors that take the time to personally get to know their students,” said Kevin. The small student-faculty ratio at Missouri Western allows students to get individual attention, building connections and lifelong friendships.
Since Kevin had taken so many college credit courses in high school through Missouri Western’s dual credit program, he was able to complete his undergraduate degree in two years before heading to law school. “I was able to finish law school before the age of 23. This really gave me a jump start in the profession,” added Kevin.
Kevin is currently a Partner at Puckett Law Firm, P.C. and President and CEO of On The Top Search, LLC.
