Raitinger authors cover story for KC Counselor looking at the effects of the pandemic on the local legal industry

Graves Garrett attorney Callie Pippin Raitinger recently authored the cover story for the March edition of the Kansas City Metropolitan Bar Association’s KC Counselor magazine. The article — titled “The Coronavirus a Year Later: A Look Backward & Forward” — took input from local professionals to highlight the pandemic’s specific effects on Kansas City and the local legal community.

Raitinger surveyed local law firms and individual attorneys for their input on the current status of the industry, while also looking at the bigger picture related to the current environment.

“We have lost members of our community,” Raitinger wrote. “Our colleagues, our friends, our adversaries, our allies, our mentors, our mentees are grieving the loss of love ones. We remember those we’ve lost. We fight with those currently fighting. We grieve with those grieving. More importantly, we join together, perhaps more than ever before, united in resilience and hope for better days ahead.”
