The legal services sector includes offices of lawyers, attorneys, and notaries, as well as title abstract offices and other specialized legal and paralegal services, except arbitration services. CEDBR, as part of research on Kansas’ retail and service sector gaps, has analyzed sales in the legal services sector in every county throughout Kansas.
- Total legal services employment in Kansas was approximately 13,300 in 2013, with employment of 19 in the median county in the state in this sector. Johnson County, Sedgwick County, and Shawnee County had the highest total employment and sales in the sector in the state.
- Only one Kansas county, Lane County, was identified as not having any establishments classified as legal services establishments in the dataset, which could indicate either a lack of legal services in those areas, or establishments classified in another service sector could also be providing legal services. The county has a population of less than 5,000 people.
