Caleb Biesterveld

Caleb is a passionate trial attorney taking great pride in helping injury victims.  His compassion is evidenced not only by his robust courtroom delivery but also by the way he genuinely listens to and cares for his clients.  Caleb’s goal as a trial attorney is to make our community safer by holding individuals and corporations accountable for their dangerous conduct.

A zealous advocate for victims of dangerous conduct and consumer abuse.

Caleb represents injury victims, employees who have been discriminated against by their employer or harassed by a co-worker, and consumers who have been victimized by corporate fraud. Caleb has a knack for working with adversaries to negotiate a fair resolution of disputes.  However, when the opposition is stubborn and unreasonable, he stands ready to fight for your rights and win your case at trial.

Biesterveld & Crook, LLC was formed in 2017 when Caleb partnered with his longtime friend Dustin Crook.  Prior to joining forces with Dustin, Caleb owned and operated a solo law practice in downtown Olathe, Kansas.

Growing up on a small farm in southwest Missouri, Caleb learned the value of hard work at a young age.  His work ethic helped Caleb graduate Valedictorian of his high school class. He then graduated magna cum laude from Missouri State University, earning a bachelor’s degree in Political Science with a minor in Psychology.

Caleb graduated with honors from Washburn University School of Law in Topeka, Kansas.  While attending Washburn Law, he worked as a licensed legal intern at Washburn Law Civil Litigation Clinic, successfully representing clients in landlord/tenant disputes, estate planning, personal injury, employment discrimination, misrepresentation, fraud, collection, breach of contract, and negligence actions.  He worked simultaneously as a Legal Intern for the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks, and Tourism where he drafted bills, legislative speeches, and State regulations.

Caleb is licensed to practice in both Kansas and Missouri State Courts, as well as the U.S. District Court for the District of Kansas and the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Missouri.  He is a member of the Kansas Bar Association, the Missouri Association of Trial Attorneys, the Johnson County Bar Association, and the Washburn Alumni Association.
