Jesse Langford has been a member of the Licata Bankruptcy Firm team since February 2016. Prior to moving to Springfield, he was born and raised in Kansas City, Missouri. Jesse attended undergraduate school at Missouri State University where he graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in History in 2007.
While going to school in Springfield he developed a love for the community in southwest Missouri. He served as community service chair of his fraternity and helped organize Missouri State’s inaugural Up Til’ Dawn event to raise awareness and funds for St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital. He also lucked into the most fortunate moment of his life when he met his wife.
Initially, he intended to teach secondary education, however realizing that teaching was not his calling he attended law school at the University of Missouri – Kansas City and graduated in 2012. Subsequently, he established his own firm in Liberty, Missouri and began a general practice. In that time Jesse handled a variety of cases ranging from minor property disputes to wrongful death claims.
He moved to Springfield in 2014 and continued as a general practitioner with an emphasis on bankruptcy. Jesse believes that his wealth of experience in multiple areas of law has been instrumental to his ability to properly guide his clients through the bankruptcy process. He would describe his favorite part of being a personal bankruptcy attorney in Springfield Missouri as having a client leave his office after a consultation and witnessing the feeling of relief on their face knowing that there is light at the end of the tunnel regarding their financial issues.
In his free time, he enjoys playing in his backyard with his sons, reading, and doing projects around the house. Being a native son of Kansas City, Jesse is also a die-hard Kansas City sports fan as well as a passionate fan of his Missouri State Bears.
