Jordan Shaw

Associate Attorney
Jo, an associate at Slape & Howard, Chartered, joined the firm fresh out of Washburn University School of Law where she graduated with Dean’s Honors in May 2020. Prior to law school, Jo received her Bachelor of Business Administration from Fort Hays State University in 2016 where she was a four-year member of the women’s soccer team. During her legal education, Jo became aware of Kansas workers’ need for passionate advocacy against those insurance companies with seemingly unlimited resources. She took a heavy course load in employment law, and she developed and honed her skills in trial advocacy as a member of a competitive trial team. Her parents’ own custom woodworking business taught Jo the work ethic required to provide for a family and the values instilled in those who aren’t afraid of sweat equity. When Jo’s not protecting Kansas workers’ interests, she’s exploring Wichita or camping with her fiancé, Andy, and her golden retriever, Brooks.
