Mandi Hunter

As the founder of Kansas City’s first full-service stand alone real estate law firm, Mandi has been thankful for her role in pioneering a highly respected approach to law that has lead to her setting legal precedents for clients that shape state laws, being recognized several times as an elite “Super Attorney” by her peers, and earning the business of publicly traded companies, governments, banks of all sizes, and individuals who absolutely need a successful resolution.

Mandi founded Hunter Law Group in 2001, and enjoys leveraging her extensive experience for representing both businesses and individuals when disputes arise. Her track record with litigation has not only seen her embrace success when the legal precedents are on her client’s side, but help forge new legal precedents when the existing precedents do not make sense. Her willingness to go above and beyond has resulted in significant clarifications and changes to the laws pertaining to certain real estate items on both sides of the state line. These legal decisions have granted Mandi with the distinction of impacting aspects of the entire legal landscape, and the decisions reached in her cases have gone on to change how several of the real estate laws are understood, which will continue to impact tens of thousands of legal rulings over the next decade.

When starting her firm, Mandi knew that she wanted to create a different kind of legal model that leveraged her diverse experiences to be as much a partner, consultant, and collaborator for clients, as she was a legal advisor to them. This unique problem solving mindset enabled her and ensuing team members to create full-spectrum solutions to the problems clients were looking to solve, regardless of whether those solutions were non-legal or required legal action.

Mandi Hunter and her team represent their clients in a wide variety of transactions and litigation primarily in matters involving real estate.

A native of the Kansas City area, Mandi is admitted to practice law in both Kansas and Missouri. Mandi Hunter received her Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from the University of Kansas where she graduated with honors. She then went on to obtain her law degree from the University of Missouri-Columbia.

Mandi Hunter is honored to be recognized as a “Super Lawyer – Top 50 Women” in Missouri and Kansas in 2019 and 2020. This honor is peer nominated and no more than five percent of all lawyers in Missouri and Kansas are selected to receive this honor.

When Mandi Hunter is not practicing law, she enjoys being active and giving back to the Kansas City Community by serving as a member of several legal associations and as a director on a variety of boards and commissions, including the Johnson County Bar Association Board of Directors, Johnson County Library Foundation, and being appointed to the Leawood Planning Commission.
