Welcome to the Porto Law Firm

The Porto Law Firm was founded in 2011 with a vision of providing uncompromised legal advocacy to businesses and individuals in a cost effective manner.  Each client is provided constant access to their attorney and we are proud that most of our clients turn into our closest friends.   These relationships are the foundation of our success.  Our current practice areas include general civil litigation, real estate law and disputes, business litigation and formation, and personal injury.  In addition, the Porto Law Firm has developed a national reputation for our breadth of knowledge in legal issues specific to the towing and transportation industry.

Areas of Practice

Civil LitigationThe Porto Law Firm offers a broad range of Litigation services to Businesses and Individuals in Kansas and Missouri. We routinely appear and practice in the District Courts of Johnson, Wyandotte, and Douglas County, Kansas and the Circuit Courts of Jackson, Clay, Platte, and Cass County, Missouri.  The Porto Law Firm is committed to providing personal attention, professional representation, and sound advice to clients throughout every stage of a civil matter. Our litigation philosophy is characterized by our commitment to providing the best solution for our clients in a cost-effective manner.

Business Litigation & Formation

The Porto Law Firm represents several small and medium size businesses in Kansas and Missouri.  This representation begins with advising clients of the proper form of a new business and then drafting the necessary formation and operating documents.  Once the business is formed, the Porto Law Firm is regularly retained to advise these businesses in routine matters such as employee disputes, issues involving termination and other disciplinary actions, the negotiation and drafting of contracts and leases, and other matters.  Often times, proper legal representation regarding these matters can prevent unnecessary and expensive litigation.  However, if litigation is unavoidable, the Porto Law Firm is committed to aggressively and efficiently resolving such matters to obtain the best potential result.

Small businesses, in particular, appreciate the Porto Law Firm’s unique Billing Philosophy and commitment to alternative fee agreements, which allows business owners to accurately predict their legal costs and budget for the same.

Transportation & Towing

The Porto Law Firm has developed a national reputation for providing sound legal advice to tow truck owners and operators throughout the United States.  We have represented clients in every facet of the tow industry, ranging from billing issues to defending claims of overcharging and claims for overtime pay violations.  We are particularly passionate about advocating for the more stringent enforcement of Move Over Laws, which are designed to protect tow operators and other emergency workers on the roadway.  In addition to our legal practice, Nicholas Porto has been a frequent presenter at tow shows across the nation and regularly authors articles about legal issues pertaining to the tow industry.

Personal Injury Law

Since the Firm’s inception in 2011, our Firm has been responsible for in excess of $10,000,000.00 in recoveries for individuals hurt and killed by the negligence of others.  Because of our Firm’s knowledge in legal issues specific to the towing and transportation industry, a significant portion of these recoveries have involved tow operators and other emergency workers who were struck on the roadway.  In 2013, our Firm obtained a landmark recovery for the family of a young tow operator who was tragically killed while in the line of duty.  Since this time, Nicholas Porto has been a frequent advocate for enhanced Move Over Laws for tow operators and other emergency workers on the roadway.

Real Estate Law

The Porto Law Firm is proud to represent some of the most respected property management companies in the Kansas City area. We are particularly well versed in residential and commercial landlord tenant issues and handle dozens of evictions case each week. Because we understand that regaining possession of a compromised property is of premium importance to landowners, we have established a qualified team of legal investigators and process servers that can efficiently locate and serve defaulting tenants in a timely fashion, which allows the landowner to successfully reclaim possession of their property at the earliest possible moment. Once a landowner determines that a tenant must be evicted, we are usually able to file the eviction within hours of notice from the landlord. All eviction cases are handled on an affordable flat rate basis.

The Porto Law Firm also represents a number of Homeowners Associations throughout the area. We have been retained to draft and revise Homeowners restrictions and covenants, and also to prosecute members of the Association that have breached these agreements.
