Kansas City Attorney David Jermann Recognized for Pro Bono Work

December 15, 2017 Firm News

Armstrong Teasdale is proud to announce that Kansas City Litigation partner David Jermann has earned the Pro Bono Champion award for his work with the Volunteer Attorney Project (VAP). Missouri Circuit Court Judge Justine Del Muro selected him for the award as part of Project Pro Bono, a partnership between the Kansas City Metropolitan Bar Association and Legal Aid of Western Missouri to encourage law firms to help expand the availability of pro bono legal services in the Kansas City area. Pro Bono Champions demonstrate a commitment to the community and are recognized for excellence in pro bono work for low-income Missourians and Kansans.

In his first pro bono case for VAP, Jermann assisted a senior citizen who was a victim of fraud while she was unexpectedly hospitalized for emergency surgery. During the four and a half months she was away from home in the hospital and at a rehabilitation facility, someone had cashed fraudulent checks totaling $2,400 and overdrawn her checking account, in addition to numerous fraudulent debit card transactions.

Over the course of more than three months, Jermann worked to secure a return of the illegally obtained funds from the bank and eventually was able to negotiate an agreement that returned virtually all of the missing funds.

Co-chair of the firm’s Franchise, Distribution and Antitrust practice area, Jermann represents and counsels businesses in a wide range of legal matters, including litigation risk-avoidance/mitigation strategies, interpretation and enforcement of employment agreements, and contract negotiation/formation issues. He has successfully represented businesses in litigation and arbitration in jurisdictions across the country, including suits involving franchising, restrictive covenants, trademark infringement, trade secret theft and consumer class actions.
