Gene Balloun

Kansas City attorney and KBA lifetime member Gene Balloun celebrated his 1,000th pro bono adoption last week. This adoption was featured on the front page of Sunday's edition of the Kansas City Star.


Balloun and his firm, Shook, Hardy & Bacon LLP have helped to establish a scholarship fund exclusively for those who have been in the foster care system in the state of Kansas. For 13 years, the fund has provided $625,000 to nearly 500 students.

Congratulations- someone who actually give lawyers a good name. thanks for the great adoption efforts but also for your support of Johnson county foster parents for many years. there was one error in the article, said you are 85- no way that's possible. keep up the good work. Jon Willard
