William Hammond


Bill is the founder and President of KC Elder Law. Since its inception in 1996, Bill has helped thousands of Kansas and Missouri families in areas such as Medicaid qualification and planning, estate planning, and finding appropriate care facilities for their loved ones.

Bill's journey into elder law began when his mother-in-law faced life-changing injuries requiring full-time care, and he was unable to find adequate resources to assist with planning for her future.

Through the years, Bill has worked with his colleagues to build a practice that addresses the challenges and questions his family faced, with co-workers that share a common bond: the passion for helping seniors with the challenges that many older Americans face.

Bill is a graduate of the University of Notre Dame and the University of Notre Dame Law School. He is licensed in Kansas and Missouri, and is an author and lecturer. He is the co-author of The Kansas and Missouri Nursing Home Guide and The Alzheimer's Legal Survival Guide. He is a member of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys. He and his wife, Mary, live in Olathe, Kansas and enjoy spending time with their five grown children, Danny, Katie, Laura, Matt and Molly, their spouses, and their grandchildren.
