Michael's Biography

Having served as president of both the Eastern Jackson County Bar Association and Missouri Association of Trial Attorneys, Michael Manners knows about service to the legal profession and service to his clients.  As a trial attorney, Mike has been included in the annual Best Lawyers in America directory, and has tried a number of cases across a wide variety of practice areas and industries.

As a Circuit Court judge, Hon. Michael W. Manners received such prominent distinctions as the Theodore McMillian Judicial Excellence Award from the Missouri Bar, and “Best Circuit Judge in the State” by Missouri Lawyers Weekly.  The Kansas City Metropolitan Bar Association bestowed him with its Joseph E. Stevens, Jr. Aspire to Excellence Award for his service as a judge in 2012.  He has been a frequent lecturer at educational forums for trial judges and continuing legal education programs for attorneys.

In 1989 Mike was granted a Certificate of Civil Trial Advocacy from the National Board of Trial Advocacy, a process that is open to trial lawyers who have experience as lead counsel in a number of jury trials after background investigation and written examination.  In 1995 he was accepted for membership in the American Board of Trial Advocacy, an organization of trial attorneys representing members of both the plaintiffs’ and defense bar.

Judge Manners was appointed by Governor Roger Wilson on November 17, 2000.  Prior to his appointment, he spent 24 years as a trial attorney with the firm that eventually became Welch, Martin, & Albano.  Mike received his undergraduate degree from Central Missouri State University in history and political science, and his J.D. from the UMKC Law School.
