Jason Kotlyarov J.D, LL.M.

EFFICIENT  – STRATEGIC – DEPENDABLE

Originally  from Moscow, Russia,  Jason Kotlyarov grew up in Shawnee, KS and attended the University of Missouri-Kansas City for his Bachelor’s of Science in Accounting, Juris Doctor, and Latin Legum Magister (Master of Laws) in Taxation. He started his legal career in practice in Springfield, MO primarily practicing Bankruptcy Law and Social Security/Disability Law. He is proud to have helped hundreds of clients get a fresh financial start and obtain the government benefits that have enabled them to receive the fresh start that they were looking for. He opened his practice in Kansas City in October 2015 and now helps both individuals and businesses in regards to tax law, ERISA (Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974) law, business law, civil litigation, and in a variety of other ways. Jason specifically strives to become an expert on employee benefits, ERISA law and tax law matters. He has launched www.TheERISALawyer.com, a second Kotlyarov Law Group website designed to act as a resource for ERISA attorneys and those interested in ERISA and employee benefits law.

Jason is a big Chiefs and Royals fan and is still holding out hope for an NHL or NBA team to make it’s way to KC. He also speaks fluent Russian and enjoys cooking, reading and spending time with family and friends.
