Luke R. Hertenstein, JD

Senior Litigation Attorney

With more than thirteen years of civil litigation experience, trial lawyer Luke R. Hertenstein provides insightful counsel to clients about their case and zealously advocates for their interests in court. Luke has handled cases in federal and state courts, at both the trial and appellate levels, and his trial successes include a $5 million jury verdict against a large corporation (please note that past results afford no guarantee of future results, and each case is different and is judged on its own merits).

Luke’s legal practice has always been 100% devoted to civil litigation.  At previous law firms, his practice focused on business litigation, insurance defense matters, product liability litigation, and representing individuals in employment-related disputes (particularly employees harmed by discrimination or retaliation based on race, sex, religion, and/or disability).  Since joining the Hollis Law Firm in 2019, Luke has focused his practice on complex product liability litigation, representing individuals harmed by defective drugs and medical devices.

Luke’s professional recognitions include being named four times to the Missouri/Kansas Rising Stars list by Super Lawyers.  Each year, no more than 2.5 percent of the lawyers in the state are selected by the research team at Super Lawyers to receive this honor, following a selection process including peer reviews and independent research evaluations.
