Wade A. Schilling

Kansas City, Missouri
Wade is an asssociate attorney with Holman Schiavone.  He litigates with a primary focus on employment discrimination or retaliation, medical malpractice, and personal injury.  Wade is licensed to practice in Missouri and Kansas, both in the state and federal court system.  Wade is also a member of the Kansas City Metropolitan Bar Association, the National Employment Lawyers Association,and the Missouri Association of Trial Attorneys. 
Raised on a family-farm in southwest Missouri, he attended the University of Arkansas - Fayetteville then enrolled in law school at the University of Missouri - Kansas City, and now resides in Kansas.  After graduating from law school, he served as a law clerk for the Honorable Joel P. Fahnestock in Jackson County Circuit Court.  Working behind the scenes allowed him to learn the practical knowledge necessary for successful litigation practice. 
After a short time working for a defense firm, Wade concluded that being able to help and advocate for persons, not companies, was his true calling and would be the focus of his practice.  To achieve this goal, he joined Holman Schiavone in 2018.  When not working, Wade enjoys spending time with his wife, friends, and family, and is a huge fan of the Kansas City Chiefs.
