KCMBF’s Military Matters is proud to shine the January Pro Bono Spotlight on Jordan Haas of Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner LLP.
Jordan initially heard about Military Matters through the KC Counselor and his firm’s partnership with the program. Jordan’s family has ties back to the American Revolution, served in WWII with the Navy, and served in the Army during WWI. He has three cousins who served or are serving with the Army, and a cousin of his is currently serving with the Army in Europe as a helicopter pilot. Jordan’s wife’s maternal grandfather also served in WWII with the Army.
Jordan explained that his experience serving in the program has been positive, “with beneficial results for the veterans.” All the cases he has assisted to date have involved real estate including property guidance, landlord/tenant disputes, and title matters.
Jordan decided at a relatively young age he wanted to get into law as his father is a practicing attorney. He “made the choice while still in high school and followed in his footsteps with an economics degree followed by a law degree.”
Jordan's law firm has a pro bono program with a pro bono coordinator who helps find volunteers for Military Matters by sending out potential cases to the attorneys. The firm helps support Jordan and his colleagues through not only attorneys and partners to seek advice from, but also office support including secretarial and paralegal services.
Jordan is newly married to his wonderful wife, Emily. They are thankful they can visit both of their parents and Jordan’s paternal grandparents in the area. Close by, Jordan has a sister and her husband, a sister-in-law, and a niece. Jordan also has a brother-in-law in Texas. He enjoys spending time and travelling with his wife, supporting KC’s sports teams and KU, playing sports, enjoying the outdoors, and BBQ. Most recently he and his wife climbed two volcanoes while on their honeymoon.
Thank you, Jordan, for your dedication to KCMBF’s Military Matters and to giving back!
