Attorney Anne H. PankratzAttorney Anne H. Pankratz

Anne Pankratz was admitted to the Bar in 1986. She obtained her law degree from the University of Kansas School of Law and Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing and Master of Arts in Health Administration from Wichita State University. Anne, a licensed registered nurse, has focused her legal career on medical malpractice and personal injury cases. She is currently admitted to practice law  before the United States Supreme Court, U.S. Court of Appeals, Tenth Circuit;  U.S. District Courts, District of Kansas and Northern District of Oklahoma.

Ms. Pankratz was raised in the small Kansas community of Kingman.  After obtaining her nursing license, Anne worked several years at a large Wichita hospital, where she became a devoted patient advocate.  This basic concept continues to guide Anne's legal practice - to achieve justice for patients when they have been injured by the conduct of physicians, nurses or hospitals. Ms. Pankratz is committed to the philosophy that all cases are important, no matter how large or small; and no matter how complex the medical facts involved. Combining her medical and legal knowledge, Ms. Pankratz has consistently been able to obtain excellent results for her clients.

Anne has been involved in litigation for over 25 years. While she occasionally handles personal injury cases and complex product liability cases, Anne has primarily focused her practice on medical malpractice.  In the past, Anne has litigated birth injury cases involving cerebral palsy caused by a  failure to timely deliver the baby; shoulder dystocia resulting from a mismanagement of the final stages of labor; birth injuries caused by a mother being prescribed  inappropriate and contraindicated drugs during her pregnancy; hypoglycemic brain injury caused by a failure to properly monitor a newborn's blood sugar after the child's birth;  brain injury caused by a failure to appropriately and timely resuscitate a baby after its birth; and traumatic birth injuries which result in severe brain injury.

Anne has cases in both state and federal courts in Kansas and Oklahoma. In addition, she has litigated and settled more than 100 cases in Kansas, Oklahoma, Missouri, Colorado, Ohio, New York and Mississippi. Some of the Ms. Pankratz's cases reported by state and federal courts include:

  • Bennett v. Fieser, 1993 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 21589
