Jordan Baehr, Associate Attorney
Jordan is an associate at Williams Dirks Dameron, where he represents clients on both a contingency and hourly basis in discrimination and harassment cases, class actions, and contract, consumer, and commercial litigation. Jordan works on behalf of individuals, businesses, and classes to vindicate their rights under federal and state minimum wage and fair labor standards acts; employment, civil, and human rights law; consumer protection statutes; commercial codes; and Missouri common law. Jordan is passionate about helping workers, consumers, and small businesses stand up against unlawful treatment and make the Midwest’s workplaces and marketplaces more just and dignified for all.
Prior to joining Williams Dirks Dameron, Jordan served as a law clerk to the Honorable Paul C. Wilson of the Missouri Supreme Court. As a clerk, Jordan examined novel research questions in diverse areas of state law ranging from arson to zoning – and everything between. During law school, Jordan investigated human rights abuses among Burmese refugees with the Harvard International Human Rights Clinic, worked to promote better labor practices in Chinese factories with an ethical sourcing consultancy, and sang a solo in the 2013 HLS Parody musical, “The Wizard of Laws.” Jordan was involved in Christian fellowship throughout law school and college and currently attends Jacob’s Well Church in Westport.
Prior to law school, Jordan lived in India, where he worked for human rights group International Justice Mission to combat forced labor, and in China, where he taught English language and literature, researched political education, and conducted summer camps for children.
Jordan was born in Kansas City in October 1985, was raised here, and graduated from North Kansas City High School in 2004. After his years away at school and abroad, he returned to KC in fall of 2015, just in time to celebrate the city’s latest world championship. Besides representing the good guys and rooting for them on the field, Jordan can be found trying to grow vegetables with somewhat less success, appearing in a cover band with even less, and making sure his nieces and nephews get enough baseball and barbeque to grow up healthy in KC.
