JOSEPH J. SCHUMAKER
Areas of Practice
Joseph’s practice focuses on complex litigation in wrongful death and medical malpractice. It also emphasizes employment discrimination, real estate, and general torts. He uses his education and experience to evaluate and assist with getting matters ready for depositions, mediations, motions, and trial.
Joseph joined Gibbs Pool and Turner P.C. as an associate after passing the Missouri Bar Exam. He was eager to begin work immediately and looks forward to establishing his practice in out-state Missouri. Prior to his final year of law school, Joseph interned for Judge Michael Joyce in the Johnson County District Court of Kansas, and before that interned at the Missouri State Public Defenders in Kansas City, Missouri.
Joseph was born and raised in Overland Park, Kansas, and received an undergraduate degree in History form the University of Kansas. In 2018, he decided to follow in the footsteps of his father Larry Schumaker and become an attorney by continuing his education at the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Law. Joseph is an avid reader, particularly interested in the history of Latin America and the Middle East.
